Eclipse200Law Society Endorsed legal software provider, Eclipse Legal Systems, is implementing its Proclaim Case Management Software at Total Legal Solutions, a nationwide costs and claims service.

The firm operates from its office in Sheffield, providing clients with cost services from bill drafting and negotiations to points of dispute and advocacy for a range of sectors including personal injury, litigation, property and negligence. Total Legal Solutions prides itself on its reputation to offer an entirely bespoke service to each client depending on their specific requirements.

A ready-to-go Proclaim Costs Drafting Case Management solution is being rolled out across the new firm, providing a high level of automation in all aspects of case handling, eliminating a number of administration-heavy duties in bill preparation, whilst maintaining the highest quality of standards.

To meet with Total Legal Solutions’ aim of providing an entirely paperless offering to clients, Eclipse’s Proclaim Case Management Software will enable the firm to operate completely electronically, allowing schedules, negotiations, bills of costs and points of dispute to be forwarded to clients for instant review. Furthermore, as Total Legal Solutions has a number of clients utilising Proclaim, the system’s capability to provide seamless Proclaim-to-Proclaim file transfers will enhance the firm’s service offering, ensuring fee earners can commence work immediately, greatly reducing settlement times.

Simon Wadlow, business development manager at Total Legal Solutions, comments:

“As a new start-up business we are incredibly busy. The level of automation within Proclaim means we can eradicate a number of time-consuming tasks that are inherent within bill preparation, enabling us to process larger volumes of cases at a much quicker rate.

Furthermore, by offering our clients a fully electronic service, it ensures work is commenced as soon as we receive instruction, eliminating lead times and significantly reducing expenditure for our clients – something that is now crucial a result of the fixed costs introduced within the PI sector.”

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.
