One of the north-west’s largest law firms – Asons Solicitors – has revealed record growth figures, in a challenging environment for legal services providers.

Founded just 5 years ago, Asons recently employed its 250th staff member; all based at its central Bolton premises.  The firm implemented Eclipse‘s at its inception in 2008, when headcount numbered 3 employees (equating to a staff growth to date of over 8,200%).

Proclaim is utilised by all Asons staff, the system providing a core centralised solution for the full range of injury claim types – from complex high-value cases (Asons recently won a 6-figure settlement for a client, after a significantly lower initial insurer offer) through to minor RTA (Road Traffic Accident) claims.

Proclaim has enabled the firm to structure its business so that 88% of staff are revenue generating (fee earning), with only 12% dedicated to ‘support’ functions.  Future strategic aims include the expansion of its Industrial Disease team to be the UK’s largest (it currently numbers 110 staff), and the implementation of a dedicated Clinical Negligence department.

Imran Akram, CEO at Asons, comments:

“Our aim right from day one was to build a sustainable and solid business.  The personal injury sector is fluid and challenging – the right , one that is flexible and adaptable, is utterly vital.  Proclaim has provided us with the power to continually enhance our processes, drive out waste and increase margins.

“Proclaim is our ‘blank canvas’ and has enabled us to create a van Gogh.”

How to protect your firm from ransomware

Adam Curtis Hoowla

One news item has dominated the headlines over the last week – cyber-attacks and, in particular, the WannaCry ransomware. It is a well-known and well-documented fact that the legal industry, and conveyancing in particular, can be a vulnerable and high value target. This ranges from property hijacking – where fraudsters pose as legitimate owners of a property and sell it on without the real owner’s knowledge – to ‘Friday afternoon fraud’, with criminals contacting a busy law firm to ‘update’ their bank details to redirect funds.
