3 October 2013


Leeds-based law firm, Michael Lewin Solicitors, has announced explosive growth at a time of challenging legislation for claimant solicitors.

Michael Lewin Solicitors was founded in 2001 and has recently passed the 120 employee mark (across 5 office locations). The firm implemented Eclipse‘s solution in 2009, when headcount numbered 15 employees, to replace its incumbent Case Management system.

Proclaim is utilised by all Michael Lewin staff, providing a core centralised solution for a range of injury claim types – from minor RTA (Road Traffic Accident) claims through to £multi-million clinical negligence matters.  The firm also utilises as its practice accounting and reporting toolset, providing full integration with fee earner activity.

Michael Lewin’s expansion is not complete – the firm has introduced a range of non-personal injury services in recent times – all using and employment work.

Abbie Keech, Director at Michael Lewin, comments:

“Back in 2009 we sought out a system – and a supplier – aligned with our aggressive growth plans.  Proclaim has delivered over and above expectations, providing an easy to use and incredibly scalable solution.  We can process claims with greater speed, greater accuracy, and in greater volumes.  Proclaim’s flexibility in, for example, enabling us to add more work streams outside of the core personal injury work, is invaluable.”

Although consensus on that equilibrium can never really be achieved, sometimes there are pieces of legislative movement which are difficult to argue with regardless of your perspective: This is one of those. Published on 13 October 2017, the Parental Bereavement (Pay and Leave) Bill would provide for the first time a legal right to parents who are employed and have suffered the death of a child, a minimum of two weeks’ leave in which to grieve.
