Leading UK personal injury specialist, Fentons Solicitors LLP, which is set to be acquired by Australian listed company Slater & Gordon, is amongst the first to adopt Eclipse‘s new TouchPoint solution.

Fentons – which recently gained its Alternative Business Structure licence – employs 300 staff at offices in Manchester and London.  The firm specialises in matters ranging from road traffic accidents and industrial disease claims through to complex, multi-million pound medical negligence cases.  Fentons utilises Eclipse’s solution for all staff and is now bringing onboard TouchPoint functionality.

Recently launched, TouchPoint provides an ‘always on’ self-service solution for firms’ clients and business partners.  A personalised, convenient experience, TouchPoint can be delivered via any device (e.g. iPad, smartphone), operating on any platform (iOS, Android, Windows).

TouchPoint provides users with a choice of ’tiles’ that can be presented to clients to provide a transparent and user-friendly interface with case progress, KPIs, marketing systems, document management, geo-mapping, and more.

Paul Medcalfe, Partner and Head of IT at Fentons Solicitors, comments:

“One of the main advantages of TouchPoint is the fact that it is not dependent on any one operating system, enabling users – our business partners or clients – to benefit.  As a firm we are proud of our reputation, secured by delivering the best in client service and support, and we always want our clients to have the best possible experience.  Initially we will be introducing TouchPoint to our business partners – such as our costs draftsmen – but then we plan to roll this out to those clients who want to track progression and communicate with us from the solution.”

Steve Ough, Chief Software Architect at Eclipse, comments:

“TouchPoint is a genuinely unique solution in the legal services market – we are delighted that our latest innovation is so in tune with forward-thinking law firms.”

The skills shortage in law firms is the biggest threat to handling cybercrime

CLC Roundtable discussion at Malmaison Hotel, Charterhouse Square

The skills shortage in our businesses is the biggest threat to our industry when looking at cybercrime. Cybercriminals are not just after money but are looking for sensitive information too, so the legal services sector is an obvious target. In the last year we have had reports of around £7m of client money being lost to such crime. This is not an IT issue and it should not be left to the IT teams to sort out. It is a high-level responsibility and a board-level issue that must be taken seriously. We suspect that we will look back on 2016 and ask why we didn’t respond quicker.
