Investing in the future – Proclaim case management enhances competitive edge

Eclipse200Minards Pavlou started life in 1988. The firm specialises in personal injury claims, catering for a range of matter types, with a niche emphasis on motorbike claims.

As a small practice, Minards Pavlou had reached a plateau in the firm’s development. It was decided that, to optimise the speed of matter progression, a new Case Management Software platform should be sought.

Following an initial meeting at the Legal IT Show in London, the practice made the decision to replace its incumbent system with Proclaim. Proclaim was regarded as the market leading solution – the system’s flexibility and data management capabilities greatly appealed to the Minards Pavlou team.

Paul Pavlou, managing partner at Minards Pavlou, reports that upon hearing of the IT investment, he was asked “How can you afford to take the risk of changing your IT systems, as a small firm, just as the recession is biting?”

Paul’s response was concise and to the point: “How can we afford not to?”

Proclaim has seen the practice improve information sharing, remove re-keying and duplication of effort, and reduce administrative overhead. The result is a faster turnaround of files (new instructions fully actioned on the day they are received) and consistent levels of quality for both business partners and clients. Minards Pavlou has been able to expand both its case throughput, and its headcount of legal professionals – a perfect example of utilising technology to help move the business forward.

“Implementing Proclaim Case Management has proved to be a sound business decision and a great investment.” – Paul Pavlou (Managing Partner), Minards Pavlou

Is it time solicitors started taking ethics training more seriously?

mena_ruparel

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.
