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.”

Rating lawyers by their wins and losses – a good idea?

Robert Ambrogi

Lawyers will give you any number of reasons why their win-loss rates in court are not accurate reflections of their legal skills. Yet a growing number of companies are evaluating lawyers by this standard – compiling and analysing lawyers’ litigation track records to help consumers and businesses make more-informed hiring decisions. The shortcomings of evaluating lawyers by win rates are many. Not least of them is that so few cases ever make it to a win or loss. Of equal concern is that, in the nuances of law practice, it is not always obvious what constitutes a win or a loss.
