“We selected Proclaim based upon both the system’s standout features, and Eclipse’s qualities as a supplier.  Proclaim provides a one-stop solution for us, seamlessly integrating our key requirements which include financial management, workflow, CRM, compliance and document management.  The system stood ahead of its peers in providing this holistic approach, and in also boasting the flexibility to ensure it develops with our practice.

“As a firm we are looking to grow, not only in terms of scale but also the breadth and depth of our service offerings.  The ethos at Eclipse is very similar to ours at Gorvins – approachability, professionalism and a strong focus on making sure the client is happy.  We look forward with confidence to the future with Proclaim as our platform for growth.”

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.
