Full-service North Yorkshire practice Crombie Wilkinson Solicitors is implementing Eclipse Legal System‘s Proclaim practice management software system in a six-figure deal.

Crombie Wilkinson acts for private individuals, owner-managed businesses and entrepreneurs in numerous sectors such as professional services, agriculture, property, food and retail, as well as trusts and educational establishments. The firm operates from three locations throughout North Yorkshire, priding itself on quality and consistency (the firm is both Lexcel and Conveyancing Quality Scheme accredited).

The changing legal landscape, and increased opportunities to drive case throughput, impelled Crombie Wilkinson to research the legal software marketplace for a more appropriate and future-proof practice management solution. Following a full review of available solutions, aided by a leading management consultant, Crombie Wilkinson selected Eclipse’s Proclaim system.

The practice is implementing Proclaim for all staff, with case management solutions in the conveyancing, matrimonial, employment, personal injury, debt recovery and probate teams. In addition, Crombie Wilkinson is taking a Proclaim matter management solution for non-prescriptive work areas such as commercial law and dispute resolution.

To complete the practice management implementation, the firm is migrating to Proclaim Accounts from its incumbent system and is taking Eclipse’s new Credit Control Centre module.

Duncan Morter, managing director at Crombie Wilkinson, said: “The new era of legal services gives us a fantastic opportunity to extend our market reach and provide superior client care. To build upon our existing reputation of excellence and consistency, we needed to implement a robust and scalable practice-wide software solution.

“Our clients will benefit from even greater speed, transparency, and the availability of a broader service portfolio. Proclaim will play a vital role in our strategy moving forward.”

How does your law firm manage and track leads? Part 1

David Kerr

You’ve set up your new website, invested in getting to number one in Google, implemented other online and offline marketing activities to support your business objectives and then, wait for it… The phone rings. Great! A new client, right? Easy! Sadly, for too many firms, this isn’t the case. In an increasingly competitive market place, law firms invest enormous amounts in marketing and lead-generation activities. They invest yet more in getting the very best lawyers they can to carry out the work. Yet most firms pay little heed to one of the most important parts of the process: converting enquiries into paying clients.
