Leading personal injury law firm Fentons Solicitors LLP has replaced its practice management software with Proclaim from Legal Futures Associate Eclipse to help manage rapid growth.

The firm, which is based in Manchester and London, will initially roll out Proclaim personal injury system to 200 staff members, along with Proclaim Accounts, to form a fully integrated practice management solution.

In addition, Fentons will use Eclipse’s FileView online case tracking tool to provide clients with round-the-clock access to live case progression data. As part of the process, Eclipse will convert the data from Fentons’ existing software system.

Martin Loftus, a partner in charge of IT development at Fentons, said: “To really push Fentons forward in the extremely competitive PI arena, we felt that our core case management processes needed to be as efficient as possible.  Fentons focuses on client care and communication, and after analysis of the market’s leading vendors it was clear that Eclipse offered not only the best current solution, but that the firm’s future plans and ambitions were perfectly aligned with the Fentons ethos of growth and service excellence.”

Small claims 2013 v 2018: What has changed?

Brett Dixon APIL

Successive governments have considered increasing the small claims limit for personal injury claims, at the behest of the insurance industry lobby, from £1,000 to £5,000. But the lower limit remains unchanged because, so far, evidence and reasoning have prevailed. The last time the government tried to implement an increase was in 2013 when it concluded that it would keep the issue under consideration for implementation “when appropriate”. Nothing has happened to suppose a small claims limit of £5,000 is any more “appropriate” in 2018 than it was in 2013.
