Elite and Allen & Overy (the A&O spokesman is Campbell McIlroy) have issued a progress report on the status of the Elite 3E implementation. It reads…

Elite 3E implementation at Allen & Overy progressing well. 
Go-live re-scheduled to take place following financial year-end.

As a $2 billion firm with 29 offices located throughout 21 countries, and with over 2600 lawyers, the Elite 3E implementation at Allen & Overy represents one of the largest global law firm financial & practice management roll-outs of its kind, and with its ‘big bang’ approach is both complex and impressive.
 
Both parties are pleased with progress, however have mutually agreed to re-schedule go-live to allow Elite more time to fine tune some of the highly complex functionality required by a large law firm such as Allen & Overy, as well as to avoid any disruption during the last four months of the financial year.
 
Added to this fact, Elite Enterprise is working well at Allen & Overy and there is therefore no rush as the goal remains to ensure roll-out is a seamless success from day one. The project will deliver significantly improved functionality and Allen & Overy partners and accounts staff are excited by what they have already seen.
