Higgins Miller, a firm of Stockport solicitors, has selected the Law Society Endorsed Proclaim Practice Management Software solution from Eclipse Legal Systems.

Covering the entirety of England and Wales, the Higgins Miller offers a friendly but robust and practical approach to clients, ensuring all cases are dealt with effectively and efficiently.

The firm takes a flexible and innovative approach to funding, providing fixed fee costs and competitive hourly rates, as well as Legal Aid where applicable.

Using Eclipse’s ready-to-go Proclaim Family Case Management Software, Higgins Miller will be able to cater for Private Client and Legal Aid casework.

Thanks to Proclaim’s configurable nature, the firm will be able to modify the structure of standard cases to suit its staff’s way of working.

Additionally, Proclaim’s ability to export data to the Legal Aid online portal will enable fee earners to submit bills directly to the LAA from their Proclaim desktop application, simplifying the entire process and ensuring higher levels of accuracy.

Furthermore, the integrated Proclaim Practice Management Software solution will enable a unified approach to billing and overall practice management, whilst streamlining processes and operations and ensuring access to live financial data.

Mark Higgins, co-founder and director at Higgins Miller, comments:

“We pride ourselves on our reputation for providing a personalised and expert approach to our clients. Proclaim’s inherent flexibility is crucial to this as it means we can tailor the system as and when we need to, to suit our needs and our clients’ needs.

“Furthermore, as we offer Legal Aid, the integration with the LAA means we can not only simplify our processes, but also eliminate duplicate data entry, resulting in hours of valuable time saved that we can now focus on our clients.”

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.
