High-profile PI solicitor implements Eclipse’s Proclaim solution

Leading personal injury expert Chris Fry has chosen the Proclaim case management solution from Legal Futures Associate Eclipse [1] 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: ‚ÄĚThere 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.
