Consultants


Opes Consulting has one of the richest pools of Elite expertise outside of the US vendor itself.

All of our consultants have a demonstrable track record within legal, gained either at Elite or at an Elite user, and we have been careful to build a team with complementary as well as overlapping skills to ensure we can offer breadth and depth.
