Thomson Reuters to support Co-operative legal services expansion

Thomson Reuters today announced that Co-operative Legal Services has selected a Thomson Reuters product to support its front office matter management needs. 

It’s been a big week for Co-op with the announcement that they are set to grow to nearly 1,000 branches with the purchase of parts of the Lloyds Banking group.

The Co-op was recently awarded an Alternative Business Structure (ABS) licence to provide legal services as a result of the Legal Services Act.

They have been cagey about the likelihood of them expanding their conveyancing offering, but are launching into the family law business later this year.

MatterSphere, the product they have chosen, is an industry leading practice and matter management platform.

Tim Harty, VP, Thomson Reuters UK and Ireland Legal said of the deal: “We are absolutely delighted to have secured this groundbreaking agreement to support The Co-operative Legal Services as it embarks on expanding its legal services offering to the public.

“The Co-operative Legal Services is paving the way for a greater emphasis on efficiency and value for money, and to provide tangible benefits that can be passed on to the customer.”
