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.”

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.
