Personal injury specialist Beacon Law is implementing Eclipse’s Proclaim practice management software system firm-wide.

Founded as Sprostons Solicitors in 2002, the practice recently rebranded as Beacon Law in line with an ethos that aims to clarify and illuminate the injury claims process for its clients. The firm has expanded to dominate a niche within a hugely competitive marketplace, providing a complete accident claim solution including professional negligence and animal attacks.

Beacon Law is implementing a full Proclaim practice management solution for personal injury caseloads of all types, migrating data from its incumbent accounts and case management systems. The firm is also implementing Eclipse’s ‘Task Server’ toolset to automate activities such as management information report creation and distribution. To streamline communications and enhance transparency, Beacon Law will also be utilising Eclipse’s FileView solution to provide live online case updates for clients and case referrers.

As part of the Proclaim rollout, Beacon Law is integrating the solution with its existing ‘JAWS Scripting’ tool, provided by Blazie Ltd. Two partners at Beacon Law are visually impaired, and the JAWS system provides a spoken narrative detailing what is happening within the onscreen environment.

Mark Brierley, partner at Beacon Law, said: “The market sector we operate in is incredibly competitive, and to really shine firms need to have the very best technology at the core. Proclaim will provide us with a system that strips out non-value adding activities, opening up the opportunity for enhanced client communications and business development. We are delighted that our market leading proposition is now reinforced by the market-leading software solution.”

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.
