In a key win for Thomson Reuters Elite, UK top 30 law firm Charles Russell Speechlys is to upgrade from its current Enterprise practice management system to 3E.

While Charles Russell Speechlys is a longstanding client, since Elite’s announcement in February 2016 that Enterprise will no longer be upgraded and support will end in 2022, the Los Angeles-headquartered company has been working towards converting its law firm clients to 3E.

Headquartered in London and with 750 attorneys, Charles Russell Speechlys, which operates from offices in the UK, Europe and the Middle East, is an important client for Elite.

It follows the news at the start of 2017 that Aderant has signed up UK top 30 law firm and Elite customer Stephenson Harwood.

In addition to upgrading to 3E, Charles Russell Speechlys, which turned over £140m in 2016, will be rolling out integration platform Workspace. Workspace unifies operational data across the firm and provides access to both front and back office applications.

A statement from Elite said: “Charles Russell Speechlys’ choice of 3E and Workspace is attributable to the breadth of footprint that Elite has with the firm, understanding its unique needs and enabling it to bring its specific requirements together to help the firm grow into the future.”
