In brief: Jingtian & Gongcheng becomes 7th firm to sign with 3E in China
Leading Chinese law firm Jingtian & Gongcheng has become the seventh firm to select Thomson Reuters Elite 3E enterprise and financial management platform.
With offices in Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Chengdu, and Hong Kong, Jingtian & Gongcheng staffs more than 350 lawyers and has become one of the largest and most comprehensive law firms operating in China. The firm chose 3E after a competitive pitch, said to be swung by the reputation that 3E has within the Chinese market and the praise given by other domestic firms.
As we reported at the time, Elite in 2012 became the first Western legal software vendor to land a major deal in mainland China with a domestic law firm, as distinct from the PRC offices of a UK or US firm. The firm was Jun He Law Offices, which at the time had over 400 lawyers and branches in Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Dalian, Haikou, Hong Kong, New York and Silicon Valley.
