Personal injury specialist Michael Lewin Solicitor, has selected Eclipse’s Proclaim case management software solution for a firm-wide rollout. The practice operates from two locations in Leeds, employing 50 staff to manage injury cases for nationwide claimants. Following a full review of the legal software market, the firm selected Eclipse's Proclaim system.

Michael Lewin Solicitors has taken a 2-phase approach to the rollout, and following a successful implementation for 30 staff at one branch, 20 further staff will access Proclaim at the firm’s second branch.  The full Proclaim suite is being used, which includes Proclaim Accounts to form an integrated practice-wide solution for all staff.  Eclipse has carried out a conversion of data from the firm's incumbent case management and accounts systems.

As well as Proclaim Personal Injury, Michael Lewin Solicitors is also implementing the Proclaim Financial Mis-selling module to capitalise on high volumes of outstanding Payment Protection Insurance claims.

Michael Lewin commented “The personal injury sector is unique in terms of fluidity and sheer competitive weight.  To really maximise potential and profitability, a dedicated case management software system is utterly vital.”

Comment: OK, we all had some fun with Eclipse's financial figures last month – but this is why the directors can pay themselves large dividends: because they sell shed-loads of software.
