Staff at Yorkshire-based Eclipse Legal Systems, the UK’s largest independently owned legal software developer, successfully organised and participated in a raffle event raising thousands of pounds for their four nominated charities.

  • The Toy Library at St Lukes Hospital in Bradford, which operates a free loan service of specialist toys and play equipment to children with special needs.
  • Bradford Foodbank, part of the Trussell Trust, which provides emergency food and support to people experiencing crisis.
  • The Bradford Soup Run, which offers food, clothing, blankets and encouragement to the homeless.
  • Pulse Radio Secret Santa Appeal, which sends presents to less fortunate children on Christmas day in the West Yorkshire region.

Raffle tickets were purchased by Eclipse staff for the chance to win a host of prizes donated by Eclipse, ranging from an iPad and a Kindle to extra holiday allowance. The total raised through ticket sales was £9,600, split between the four charities.

Steve Ough, Chief Software Architect at Eclipse Legal Systems, comments:

“We were keen to build on the money we had already raised through our sporting challenges in 2013, by organising a fundraising event to support some lesser known – but very deserving –  causes in our local area. A huge thank you to everyone who took part – the £9,600 raised will make a massive difference to all who rely upon the valuable support our chosen charities provide.”

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.
