Eclipse200Eclipse Legal Systems, the sole Law Society Endorsed legal software provider, is implementing its Proclaim Practice Management Software solution at new start-up firm, Lester Campbell LLP.

Rodney Lester, former Senior Partner at Lester Morrill Solicitors and an experienced Private Client specialist, co-founded the new Leeds-based practice with Jade Campbell, a Property solicitor with over 14 years’ conveyancing experience.

The pair decided to establish their own Conveyancing firm; specifically providing friendly and expert advice to clients on all aspects of the property process, from sales and purchases to re-mortgages, transfers of equity and commercial property transactions.

Lester Campbell LLP is implementing the Proclaim Conveyancing Case Management system to ensure productivity is maximised from the start, allowing the new start-up to hit the ground running and enabling staff to work electronically, delivering services in a very modern way.

Proclaim’s inbuilt intelligence and automation will mean Lester Campbell LLP can focus on delivering a personalised and efficient client service, and spend less time on routine and administrative tasks.

Additionally, Eclipse’s integrated legal accounting suite will deliver a comprehensive practice and financial management toolset, providing staff with a detailed analysis of operations and a seamless approach to billing.

Lester Campbell LLP has also opted to implement Eclipse’s Task Server tool in order to automate a number of processes, eliminating the need for intervention from staff and enabling the firm to maximise efforts on delivering a cost effective client service.

Rodney Lester, Co-founder of Lester Campbell, comments:

“From the outset it was apparent to my partner and I that the demands of modern business practice require the best use of available technology. We considered a number of available systems and concluded that, for us, the Law Society was right in endorsing Proclaim as the approved system.

“It will enable us to reduce time spent on routine processes, thereby controlling costs and enabling us to achieve our vision of providing a cost effective, personalised, client service.”

Rating lawyers by their wins and losses – a good idea?

Robert Ambrogi

Lawyers will give you any number of reasons why their win-loss rates in court are not accurate reflections of their legal skills. Yet a growing number of companies are evaluating lawyers by this standard – compiling and analysing lawyers’ litigation track records to help consumers and businesses make more-informed hiring decisions. The shortcomings of evaluating lawyers by win rates are many. Not least of them is that so few cases ever make it to a win or loss. Of equal concern is that, in the nuances of law practice, it is not always obvious what constitutes a win or a loss.
