Leeds-based law firm, Michael Lewin Solicitors, has announced explosive growth at a time of challenging legislation for claimant solicitors.

Michael Lewin Solicitors was founded in 2001 and has recently passed the 120 employee mark (across 5 office locations). The firm implemented Eclipse‘s solution in 2009, when headcount numbered 15 employees, to replace its incumbent Case Management system.

Proclaim is utilised by all Michael Lewin staff, providing a core centralised solution for a range of injury claim types – from minor RTA (Road Traffic Accident) claims through to £multi-million clinical negligence matters.  The firm also utilises as its practice accounting and reporting toolset, providing full integration with fee earner activity.

Michael Lewin’s expansion is not complete – the firm has introduced a range of non-personal injury services in recent times – all using and employment work.

Abbie Keech, Director at Michael Lewin, comments:

“Back in 2009 we sought out a system – and a supplier – aligned with our aggressive growth plans.  Proclaim has delivered over and above expectations, providing an easy to use and incredibly scalable solution.  We can process claims with greater speed, greater accuracy, and in greater volumes.  Proclaim’s flexibility in, for example, enabling us to add more work streams outside of the core personal injury work, is invaluable.”

The legal profession has been on the receiving end of much hype regarding the impact of technology. Recent commentators purport that the aspiring lawyer must be a triple threat, possessing knowledge of the law, coding expertise, and in-depth knowledge of legal technology. Yet, focusing on legal technology risks overlooking the need for skills that transcend latest fads. Legal technology is a means by which to handle data: to organise it, record it, extract it, analyse it, predict from it and leverage it. Quantitative and statistical literacy – the ability to understand, apply, visualise and infer from data – underpins technological literacy and yet receives very little attention from those who encourage innovation in the legal curriculum.
