Leading personal injury law firm Fentons Solicitors LLP has replaced its practice management software with Proclaim from Legal Futures Associate Eclipse to help manage rapid growth.

The firm, which is based in Manchester and London, will initially roll out Proclaim personal injury system to 200 staff members, along with Proclaim Accounts, to form a fully integrated practice management solution.

In addition, Fentons will use Eclipse’s FileView online case tracking tool to provide clients with round-the-clock access to live case progression data. As part of the process, Eclipse will convert the data from Fentons’ existing software system.

Martin Loftus, a partner in charge of IT development at Fentons, said: “To really push Fentons forward in the extremely competitive PI arena, we felt that our core case management processes needed to be as efficient as possible.  Fentons focuses on client care and communication, and after analysis of the market’s leading vendors it was clear that Eclipse offered not only the best current solution, but that the firm’s future plans and ambitions were perfectly aligned with the Fentons ethos of growth and service excellence.”

Is it time solicitors started taking ethics training more seriously?

The requirement for solicitors to behave ethically in modern legal practice is more relevant than ever. Solicitors are still held in fairly high regard by the public, although that esteem is on the wane according to last year’s Trusted Professions poll by Ipsos Mori. Lawyers are less trusted than teachers and doctors but at least we prevail over accountants and bankers. We still hold a position of trust but we must work to hold that position. The current Solicitors Regulation Authority proposals to revise the Handbook are evidence that work still needs to be done.
