Leading personal injury expert Chris Fry has chosen the Proclaim case management solution from Legal Futures Associate Eclipse for his new South Yorkshire practice, Unity Law.
Unity Law has been formed to provide a specialist service for victims of industrial disease, clinical negligence and work-related injuries. The practice commenced trading at the end of November, and has ambitious plans to carve out a niche in the Legal Services Act landscape.
Unity Law is taking Eclipse’s market-leading Proclaim personal injury system, and is also implementing Proclaim Accounts to form a seamlessly-integrated practice management solution.
Mr Fry said: ”There is set to be a seismic change in the legal services landscape, and this will bring a range of opportunities for those willing to embrace them. In creating Unity Law, I intend to cement a position of real expertise in a huge range of injury litigation. Not just in low-value claims, but in complex multi-track cases that have a life-changing effect for claimants.
“Proclaim has a superb reputation in the marketplace, and I see it as the system of choice for firms competing post-Legal Services Act. The system will form a solid foundation for Unity Law’s growth and success”
Mr Fry is an ex-partner and head of industrial diseases at large Sheffield practice Wake Smith. He is current president of Sheffield Law Society, a Fellow of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine. With extensive experience in both high- and low-value claims, he has been involved in a large number of high-profile national cases including the ground-breaking Nottinghamshire & Derbyshire deafness litigation and, at the time, the highest known individual awards for vibration white finger in the South Yorkshire area.
