viridian-housingViridian Housing has chosen to implement the Proclaim Matter Management Software solution from Eclipse Legal Systems, the Law Society’s sole Endorsed software provider.

The ambitious housing association provides social housing to over 30,000 residents spanning across London, the south east, the Midlands and West Sussex.

Having experienced tremendous growth since inception, the association now owns around 16,000 homes and works in partnership with local authorities, organisations and residents to create safe, sustainable communities.

In order to streamline its processes and enable its lawyers to maximise matter management efficiency, Viridian Housing decided to invest in a flexible software solution for its in-house legal team. Eclipse’s Proclaim solution is being implemented to automate routine tasks and enable staff to benefit from enhanced regulation of their working practices.

As part of the implementation of Proclaim, Eclipse will be conducting a data migration of existing and historical matters from Viridian’s incumbent system.

The housing association has also opted for Eclipse’s Task Server tool which will automate a number of routine tasks and enable staff to automatically schedule and distribute reports to relevant stakeholders, colleagues and third parties.

Katrina Robinson, head of legal at Viridian Housing, comments:

“As a rapidly expanding housing association, we need our core Matter Management solution to not only be as efficient as possible, but also as flexible as possible. It was clear to us from the outset that Eclipse offered the best solution within the legal software sector, allowing us to successfully build upon our new process improvement strategy, and concentrate on what we do best – providing a best-in-class legal service for our stakeholders.”

Be careful you do not leave anything behind: will we see the end of chambers?

Charles Feeny

Experience of practice by digital support suggests that working practices will become much more informal and spontaneous, not requiring support by specific entities or even contractual arrangements. This is likely to be particularly true of the Bar, which is or should be a profession focusing on individuals. The future of the Bar is more likely to resemble a library as seen in Scotland and Ireland – albeit an electronic library – rather than the traditional chambers structure.
