T M Costings, a Buckinghamshire-based firm of dedicated costs lawyers, draftsmen and consultants, has selected a Proclaim Case Management Software solution from Eclipse, the sole Law Society Endorsed legal software provider.

Since its inception in 2005, T M Costings has grown year on year, largely through word of mouth, and now enjoys an enviable reputation for its unwavering commitment to client care, assisted by its continued development and maintenance of quality systems.

T M Costings has implemented a Hosted out-of-the-box Proclaim Costs Drafting Software application to integrate a core case management system with reporting, document management and word processing, providing a complete solution for the business needs of the firm.

As well as further streamlining its case management functions, the fully comprehensive Proclaim software will assist the firm with a number of aspects for bill creation, including production of a ‘red line’ bill.

This latest ability, introduced by Eclipse earlier in the year, means T M Costings will be able to complete the preparation of a red line bill with greater efficiency, whilst maintaining the highest quality standards.

Furthermore, once created, the bill can be electronically forwarded to the firm’s clients for instant review, therefore reducing settlement times and overall cash flow.

Toby Moreton, principal at T M Costings, comments:

“In order to offer our complete ‘cradle to grave’ service, we needed a solution that would seamlessly encompass every aspect of civil and commercial legal costs. By implementing the Proclaim Costs Drafting Software we have significantly simplified the processes associated with these.

“Additionally, as a number of our clients are Proclaim users themselves, we can now offer a seamless file transfer service at the click of a button, ensuring much quicker case progression and a greatly improved bottom line.”

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.
