Eclipse200Founded in 2001, Leeds based Michael Lewin Solicitors has grown into a large nationwide personal injury practice employing over 120 staff across five offices.

Back in 2009 Michael Lewin needed to replace its incumbent case management system with a platform and a supplier that were in line with aggressive growth plans. The solution needed to be easy to use, scalable and allow for high volumes of cases to be processed whilst maximising client service.

A Proclaim Practice Management System was chosen and 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 – processed seamlessly with Proclaim’s Application to Application integration with the Government’s Claims Portal – through to £multi-million Clinical Negligence matters. The firm also adopted Proclaim as its practice accounting and reporting toolset, providing full integration with fee earner activity. Eclipse also conducted a data migration from the incumbent solution.

Michael Lewin has announced explosive growth at a time of challenging legislation for claimant solicitors. Since implementing Proclaim in 2009, headcount has grown from 15 to over 120, an increase of over 700%. Michael Lewin’s expansion is not complete; Proclaim’s flexibility has been invaluable in allowing the firm to introduce a range of non-personal injury services – all using Proclaim – including debt recovery and employment work.

“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.” – Abbie Keech, Director, Michael Lewin Solicitors

Is it time solicitors started taking ethics training more seriously?

The requirement for solicitors to behave ethically in modern legal practice is more relevant than ever. Solicitors are still held in fairly high regard by the public, although that esteem is on the wane according to last year’s Trusted Professions poll by Ipsos Mori. Lawyers are less trusted than teachers and doctors but at least we prevail over accountants and bankers. We still hold a position of trust but we must work to hold that position. The current Solicitors Regulation Authority proposals to revise the Handbook are evidence that work still needs to be done.
