25 February 2011


Lancashire law firm Davies & Gribbin Solicitors has selected the Proclaim Practice Management software solution from Legal Futures Associate Eclipse for firm-wide rollout.

Established in 1995, the practice provides a full range of legal services for both private and commercial clients. Specialising in no-fault personal injury claims, the firm also offers conveyancing, debt recovery and probate services.

Davies & Gribbin has experienced a recent surge in the volume of cases being managed, and this – together with the impending competitive pressures of an alternative business structures landscape – necessitated analysis of the firm’s existing software platforms. Following a review of the leading case and practice management solutions on the market, the firm selected Eclipse’s Proclaim system.

As well as the core Proclaim Case Management system for all practice areas within the firm, Davies & Gribbin is implementing Proclaim Accounts to form an integrated one-stop solution for everyone within the practice. The firm is also implementing Eclipse’s FileView online case tracking tool to provide its clients with 24/7 access to live case progression data, plus the ATM (Automated Task Manager) module to streamline workflow with minimal manual intervention. Eclipse is carrying out a conversion of data from the existing hosted software system in use by Davies & Gribbin.

Partner Barbara Gribbin said: “Times are changing, and to thrive in the post-ABS marketplace law firms will have to underpin excellent client service with absolute technical efficiency. We saw Eclipse’s Proclaim system as offering by far the best range of process automation and quality safeguarding. With Proclaim at the core of our operations, we are confident that our ambitious growth plans in the new era of legal services will be met.”

Lawyers must now draw on the data and drive change

Chris Marston 2014

The results from this year’s legal services consumer tracker survey make for interesting reading. In its sixth year, the research finds that a firm’s reputation continues to grow in importance, holding its top slot as the number one factor influencing choice of lawyer, with price remaining a strong second, reflected in a shift towards higher numbers of fixed-fee transactions. Alongside, it reports that trust in lawyers has declined to 42%, from 47% in 2012. It’s useful information as far as it goes, but what is the sector going to do with it?
