Members of Yorkshire-based Eclipse Legal Systems, the UK’s largest independently owned legal software developer, successfully organised and participated in a series of charity events throughout 2013 raising thousands of pounds for their three nominated charities.

  • Candlelighters, based in Yorkshire, provides essential services and support to children with cancer and their families.
  • Barth’s Syndrome Trust, which is dedicated to saving lives through education, advances in treatment and finding a cure for Barth’s Syndrome – a sometimes fatal, often debilitating genetic disease affecting boys.
  • Martin House, a hospice for children, young people and their families from throughout the Yorkshire region.

The Eclipse fundraising events included auctions of surplus IT equipment and a series of four physical sporting challenges which included the Leeds Half Marathon, Jayne Tomlinson’s ‘Blockbuster’ hike, the Leeds 10k and finally the 71 mile Otley Sportive Cycle.

Dolores Evelyn, Sales Director at Eclipse Legal Systems, comments:

“Congratulations to all those who took part in the events and a huge thank you to everyone who rewarded these efforts by donating and making this a record breaking fundraising year for Eclipse.   The £8,000 raised will help to make a huge difference to all who rely upon the valuable support our chosen charities provide.”

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.
