Here’s our latest analysis of just three areas of legal technology being used by the UK’s 200 largest law firms, with a further breakdown to show the differences between the Top Tier firms (defined as those with turnovers of £80+ million) and the Mid Tier sector.

In the Top Tier PMS category, with just one exception, the Elite sites are running either 3E or Enterprise. In the Mid Tier group, just over half the Elite sites are running Envision. Clearly orange is the new black.

In the DMS category “Other Systems” refers to firms handling document management via their practice and case management systems rather than specialist DMS products. In the Mid Tier group, “Other DMS” includes SharePoint. These figures don’t include the recent Tikit/Brabners HP deal.

In the Case/Workflow category, OpenText BPS is the old Metastorm eWork system (+ see story on page 2). The Elite sites are a mixture of MatterSphere and FloSuite, the LexisNexis sites are primarily Axxia or Visualfiles. Because most firms run more than one application in this area, we have just listed the largest suppliers by percentage of sites they are installed in. (Which is also why the figures do not add up to 100%.)
