10 February 2015


Eclipse200Law Society endorsed legal software supplier, Eclipse Legal Systems, has announced new J-Code functionality in its market-leading Proclaim solution.

Following the announcement of the approved J-Codes in late 2014 by the LEDES oversight committee (LOC), Eclipse has confirmed that the J-Codes set synchronises with Proclaim’s existing costs budgeting categories as set out in the Precedent H.

Production of the Precedent H form is a standard feature of the systems. This existing costs budgeting functionality will enable lawyers to produce bills and budgets utilising the J-Codes set, even before such usage becomes mandatory.

In addition, Eclipse is currently awaiting the outcome of the consultation by LOC to reach completion regarding bill layouts and will be adding these new layouts to . The module is due for release imminently (Q2 2015) and will provide ‘redline bill’ production for costs teams.

Eclipse’s business solutions director, Tracy Blencowe, comments:

“Eclipse’s product development ethos means that we are constantly enhancing the feature-set offered by Proclaim. In short, if there is a marketplace challenge – or an opportunity – for our clients, then we aim to provide the appropriate tools for them to derive maximum benefit.

“This latest implementation of the J-Codes set will enable our clients to comply immediately with ongoing legislation, and to share data in a consistent and readily usable format.”

Joint (ad)ventures in the legal sector

Nigel Wallis lo res

We all know that nothing in life is certain. As the actor, director and philosopher Clint Eastwood once said: “If you want a guarantee, buy a toaster.” He also said he’d tried being reasonable and didn’t like it. They should teach this kind of philosophy in law school. One thing in life is reasonably certain though. If you’re a law firm worth your salt, at some point you will be approached by another entity (most probably a work introducer) with a whizzy idea to ‘partner’ with you to ‘help you accelerate your growth’. In commercial speak this means, ‘we’d like to keep feeding you work but we’d also like to share in your profits’. The arrangement may be pitched to you as a joint venture – a win-win no less.
