Clarkson Wright & Jakes Ltd is a leading regional firm of solicitors in Kent serving private individuals, businesses and organisations.

With commercial clients ranging in size from owner-managed businesses to large public companies and other institutions such as schools, charities and medical practices, they have accumulated extensive experience of the legal issues faced by businesses and other organisations. CWJ offers solution-driven advice to the clients of both divisions of the firm, aiming to deliver the outcome best suited to their clients’ needs. 

CWJ provides the quality of service and astute legal advice that might be expected from a large London firm at regional prices.

LawSoft from Legal Futures Associate Pilgrim Systems is replacing the Iris Videss system across the 75 users in the firm to provide them with a fully integrated practice management system with full client relationship management, document management and prompt financial reporting, work-flow and case management.

It is all based around a full browser-based fee-earner interface linked into a SQL database and designed to Microsoft standards – a fully dynamic and adaptable solution to CWJ’s business needs now and into the future.

Director John Bowden said: “Having reviewed the systems available at length, CWJ chose Pilgrim LawSoft to provide a complete solution to our requirements, particularly in case management and management reporting. We look forward to working with Pilgrim to implement the system and work towards one of our goals – the paperless office”.

Roger Hudson, Pilgrim’s regional business development manager, said: “After an extensive evaluation it was pleasing to see that CWJ once again re-iterated our ethos of buying from people – people they wished to build a long and mutually beneficial relationship with. We fully expect them to become an active member of our user community along with our other Kent-based clients.”

Make your mark: Personal branding for barristers

stand out from the crowd

A recent Legal Futures article reported that the number complaints involving use of social media by barristers is increasing. The BSB have warned that “as social media and the internet become more prominent in our daily lives, there is an increasing need for barristers to be very careful about what they post whether in their professional or personal lives”. While inappropriate use of social media isn’t anything new, what struck me when reading that paragraph is that, for barristers, I would argue, there shouldn’t be a defining line between the personal and professional. As a barrister, you are your own USP, your personal brand is everything.
