Gateley has selected LexisOne as its enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, we understand, although contracts have yet to be formally signed and as a listed company Gateley said that it is unable to confirm the selection or comment in advance of any formal notice to the market.

The AIM-listed law firm has undertaken a lengthy RFP process involving multiple presentations that in the end came down to two: incumbent provider Thomson Reuters Elite and LexisOne.

This is a much-needed win for LexisOne, which despite a successful rollout at UK top 30 firm Fieldfisher, had yet secure another law firm win since UK top 100 law firm Wedlake Bell’s dramatic U-turn at the start of 2018, which saw it opt to migrate to Elite 3E, four years after announcing that it had selected LexisOne.

It is understood that Lindsey Barthram, who led the roll out of LexisOne at Fieldfisher, will be assisting Gateley within his new role as director of consulting services for EMEA at Wilson Legal Solutions.

LexisOne is a cloud-native SaaS solution powered by Microsoft Dynamics 365 in Azure, meaning that Gateley will be one of the front runners in the sector in terms of putting their core financial data into the public cloud.

However, the firm is no stranger to leading the market, having been the first UK firm to list on AIM as long ago as 2015.
