Really Good News for Elite Lawsoft Customers – Quorum Legal Joins Services Partner Programme

February 28, 2013

Today Thomson Reuters Elite announced that Quorum Network Resources has joined its Partnership Programme.

Personally I see this as a really encouraging development for all Elite Lawsoft clients.

First, I have worked with Quorum and know that they are a first rate organisation. As a well established MS Gold Technology partner who have really ramped up their legal industry capability, Quorum recently appointed James Frost as MD of their Quorum Legal division. They already have an impressive list of legal clients and with James’ experience (previously IT Director with Turcan Connell and Lindsays) and in-depth Lawsoft knowledge I can see this division going from strength to strength.

Also, as I’ve commented previously, Lawsoft sales around the globe continue to grow – very much in line with the Thomson Reuters Elite strategy for Lawsoft to be the main integrated suite for worldwide (non US) mid market firms. However, and possibly as a consequence of this, I’ve heard increasingly loud rumblings from Lawsoft clients who complain that they cannot get the support they need from Lawsoft for their upgrades and enhancements. Growing the partner network will allow Elite to grow their international footprint and develop product functionality at the same time as satisfying their installed client base.

Recently I posted on my perception of the Thomson Reuters strategy in the legal arena – and in particular their stated intention of being ‘a software company’. Well this announcement is further evidence that they mean business – if you are a software business then do software and do it well!

Lastly, I had a quick look at the TR Elite partner list and I see that there are only two Lawsoft services partners listed in the UK – looks to me that Quorum Legal have a great opportunity to match their capability against a growing demand for Lawsoft services.

Worthwhile looking at the Quorum Legal website – http://www.quorumlegal.co.uk/
