New start-up firm, Virtus Law Ltd, is implementing the Law Society Endorsed Proclaim Practice Management solution from Eclipse Legal Systems.

The new Manchester-based firm has been founded by Director Rossanna Schurink and will be primarily focusing on Personal Injury. Having worked in a number of large national firms, Rossanna decided to set up Virtus Law Ltd to provide clients with expert advice and guidance through a process which can often be traumatic.

This ambitious new start-up plans to expand in the future, continuing to offer a personal touch that can often be lost in larger practices.

Virtus Law Ltd will be implementing a ready-to-go Proclaim Personal Injury solution enabling a secure and instantaneous approach to matter management.

Proclaim’s integrated practice accounting and financial management toolset will provide a seamless approach to billing and overall practice management, supplying a detailed analysis of operations.

Additionally, the practice will take advantage of Proclaim’s integration with the MoJ’s RTA and EL/PL Claims portal via a seamless Application-to-Application (A2A) method, enabling comprehensive management of claims through the Proclaim desktop.

Furthermore, as a solution to the ‘know your customer’ problem, Virtus Law Ltd will benefit from the integration between Eclipse and CRIF, the ID/AML checking service.

Ideal for a busy new start-up practice, the ID checking service will allow Virtus Law Ltd to request ‘one-click’ ID and AML checks directly from the Proclaim desktop, with search results returned directly to the relevant client files.

Rossanna Schurink, director and founder of Virtus Law Ltd, comments:

“As a new start-up business, it was imperative that I implemented the correct Practice Management solution to help me reduce as many administrative overheads as possible, and therefore focus solely on my clients. Proclaim stood out due to its unrivalled reputation and experience within the market, providing me with the confidence to know the software is entirely futureproof.”

The skills shortage in law firms is the biggest threat to handling cybercrime

CLC Roundtable discussion at Malmaison Hotel, Charterhouse Square

The skills shortage in our businesses is the biggest threat to our industry when looking at cybercrime. Cybercriminals are not just after money but are looking for sensitive information too, so the legal services sector is an obvious target. In the last year we have had reports of around £7m of client money being lost to such crime. This is not an IT issue and it should not be left to the IT teams to sort out. It is a high-level responsibility and a board-level issue that must be taken seriously. We suspect that we will look back on 2016 and ask why we didn’t respond quicker.
