Leading personal injury expert Chris Fry has chosen the Proclaim case management solution from Legal Futures Associate Eclipse for his new South Yorkshire practice, Unity Law.

Unity Law has been formed to provide a specialist service for victims of industrial disease, clinical negligence and work-related injuries. The practice commenced trading at the end of November, and has ambitious plans to carve out a niche in the Legal Services Act landscape.

Unity Law is taking Eclipse’s market-leading Proclaim personal injury system, and is also implementing Proclaim Accounts to form a seamlessly-integrated practice management solution.

Mr Fry said: ”There is set to be a seismic change in the legal services landscape, and this will bring a range of opportunities for those willing to embrace them. In creating Unity Law, I intend to cement a position of real expertise in a huge range of injury litigation. Not just in low-value claims, but in complex multi-track cases that have a life-changing effect for claimants.

“Proclaim has a superb reputation in the marketplace, and I see it as the system of choice for firms competing post-Legal Services Act. The system will form a solid foundation for Unity Law’s growth and success”

Mr Fry is an ex-partner and head of industrial diseases at large Sheffield practice Wake Smith. He is current president of Sheffield Law Society, a Fellow of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine. With extensive experience in both high- and low-value claims, he has been involved in a large number of high-profile national cases including the ground-breaking Nottinghamshire & Derbyshire deafness litigation and, at the time, the highest known individual awards for vibration white finger in the South Yorkshire area.

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?
