EclipseNew litigation firm, JPS Walker, is implementing the Proclaim Practice Management Software solution from Eclipse Legal Systems, the Law Society’s sole endorsed provider.

Based in Manchester, the firm has been launched by a team of expert solicitors, and will specialise in niche areas of litigation, including financial mis-selling and holiday claims. The boutique firm aims to maintain traditional values, and with proven success and years’ worth of experience within its chosen areas of law, the team will be able to offer a first class client service.

JPS Walker is initially implementing Eclipse’s ready-to-go Proclaim Case Management system for Financial Claims and Personal Injury work, facilitating a secure approach to individual client files, and bringing with it a high level of efficiency to operations. To ensure the team benefits from a fully centralised system, JPS Walker is also implementing the integrated accounting toolset which will provide a detailed analysis of the firm’s financial management data.

Additionally, the practice has selected Eclipse’s secure online document delivery and acceptance tool, SecureDocs, to further complement the system. Not only will this reduce turnaround times, and as a result increase caseload volumes, it will also eliminate the risk of sending confidential information to the wrong recipient. 

Following the first phase of implementation, JPS Walker will look to work in conjunction with Eclipse and its dedicated Consultancy team to create a bespoke Holiday Claims system, designing and creating specific workflows and documents to cater for all aspects of this complex area of law.

Michael Walker, Founding Partner of JPS Walker, comments:

“In order to effectively stay ahead of the competition – both within our chosen areas of law, and the industry as a whole – we need a powerful practice management system that can deliver robust, yet customisable workflows. Proclaim will provide us with unrivalled accuracy, teamed with the ability to handle the increasing workload anticipated.

“Furthermore, Eclipse’s extensive knowledge of the industry means we can be confident in working with the team to create a future-proof solution that will serve to enhance efficiencies and ensure the quality of service remains at an optimum level, even as we grow. We’re looking forward to a long and fruitful relationship with all at Eclipse.”

New right to paid leave for bereaved parents: A welcome move

Kimberley Manning DAS

This year, like many in recent years, has seen some key changes within the employment law field, with the government, trade unions and lobbyists remaining endlessly engaged in seeking to impose their interpretation of fair balance between employers and their respective workforces. 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.
