Eversheds goes with Eclipse Proclaim for case management

Case management software provider Eclipse Legal Systems has revealed details of its agreement with international law firm Eversheds to implement the Proclaim software solution in the firm’s Legal Systems Group (LSG) litigation unit. Eversheds’ LSG litigation unit manages complex work in numerous sectors (including claims management, mortgage enforcement, recoveries and property) for some of the world’s largest financial institutions and insurers.Eversheds originally implemented Proclaim some 12 months ago, with ‘Phase 1’ implementation taking place in the firm’s Subrogated Insurance Recoveries Team.  During that period, the system has been tailored to meet the firm’s unique needs, which led to ‘Phase 2’ implementation in the Eversheds department managing work on the Cross Rail project.This latest deal to be announced (Phase 3), will see Proclaim Case Management rolled out to a further 160 Eversheds staff. Proclaim will provide the core backbone for processing case work in the LSG litigation unit, being tailored for each team’s particular needs.  Eclipse has also provided its Elite integration application (Elite is the central financial system at Eversheds) to assist in seamless matter inception and processing of time recording data.This now gives Eclipse two of the top three law firms on the Insider 250 list as users – the other is DLA Piper.
