Carillion Advice Services (CAS), part of FTSE 250 company, Carillion, has implemented Eclipse‘s Proclaim solution.

As a group, Carillion employs 40,000 people and generates global revenues of over £4billion.  Majoring in construction and investment activities, Carillion has expanded its portfolio to offer legal and advice services, with CAS delivering quality, timely, advice to individuals and organisations.  CAS operates in both the public and private sectors and is known for both quality and the competitive rates at which advice is provided. The innovative CAS model and expertise in managed legal service and outsourcing offers a highly scalable platform for growth.

CAS recently won a 5-year contract with the Legal Aid Agency to provide legally aided telephone advice (having last year taken over the contract holder, Eaga).  Managed by Carillion Legal, the contract is being run by CAS which is now the country’s largest advice provider of its type.

Following an exhaustive selection process, Carillion chose Eclipse’s system to manage all core CAS advice and matter progression work.  Proclaim provides a complete, centralised desktop solution for all CAS fee earners and advisors, managing the full lifecycle of each file, from inception to conclusion.

Helen Ord, who heads CAS, comments:

“Of key importance for us was a solution that provides a slick and user-friendly environment for our advisors, whilst also providing the best possible experience for the people we help.  Proclaim fits the bill on both accounts, and in it we have found the perfect framework in which to deliver our service promise.”

Eclipse’s Chief Business Executive, Russell Thomson, comments:

“We are delighted to welcome Carillion onboard – Proclaim provides a fantastic solution for organisations wanting to deliver an optimum service experience both internally and externally.  We look forward to a long and successful relationship.”

The rise of the multi-disciplinary lawyer: A challenge for legal education

Catrina Denvir

The legal profession has been on the receiving end of much hype regarding the impact of technology. Recent commentators purport that the aspiring lawyer must be a triple threat, possessing knowledge of the law, coding expertise, and in-depth knowledge of legal technology. Yet, focusing on legal technology risks overlooking the need for skills that transcend latest fads. Legal technology is a means by which to handle data: to organise it, record it, extract it, analyse it, predict from it and leverage it. Quantitative and statistical literacy – the ability to understand, apply, visualise and infer from data – underpins technological literacy and yet receives very little attention from those who encourage innovation in the legal curriculum.
