Expanding multi-disciplinary practice Brightstone Law is investing in a firm-wide practice management solution from Eclipse Legal Systems.

Brightstone Law provides a full portfolio of corporate and consumer legal services from its base in Hertfordshire. To build upon impressive recent growth, the practice decided to analyse the market place for a software solution that would both maximise current opportunities and facilitate seamless future up-scaling.

The decision was made to implement a multi-type Proclaim case and matter management system, with integrated Proclaim Accounts to form a full practice management solution. Brightstone Law is taking pre-configured Proclaim casetypes for conveyancing, debt recovery, employment, matrimonial, personal injury and probate.

In addition, the firm is working closely with Eclipse to create a bespoke build for its specialist lender services team – which has a national client base and is rapidly gaining a reputation for market excellence.

Senior partner Jonathan Newman said: “Our philosophy has always been to provide clear communication through a direct lawyer-to-client relationship. We view software as a vital tool, but only a part of the solution. The right software platform will support our team to continue to provide efficient, effective legal services to our growing client base – with no compromise on accessibility.

“As a practice, we pride ourselves on running a huge range of matter types within a consistent framework. Proclaim provides the means to run both fast-track, linear work and more freeform and complex matters – all within the same user environment. The system will enable us to implement operational standards across the entire business, ensuring that all teams and units maintain service agreements and benefit from greater risk control.”

Rating lawyers by their wins and losses – a good idea?

Robert Ambrogi

Lawyers will give you any number of reasons why their win-loss rates in court are not accurate reflections of their legal skills. Yet a growing number of companies are evaluating lawyers by this standard – compiling and analysing lawyers’ litigation track records to help consumers and businesses make more-informed hiring decisions. The shortcomings of evaluating lawyers by win rates are many. Not least of them is that so few cases ever make it to a win or loss. Of equal concern is that, in the nuances of law practice, it is not always obvious what constitutes a win or a loss.
