The UK’s leading case management software provider, Eclipse Legal Systems, has reported record results for its 2010/11 trading year.

The Legal Futures Associate’s previous best results came in 2009/10, when the audited turnover figure stood at £6.6m. The financial year 2010/11, which ended on 30 June, saw Eclipse announce a revenue increase of 21% to a record high of £8m.

Highlights from the 2010/11 period include:

  • Record performance in terms of new client wins – 104 across all sectors, not including existing client upgrades and extensions;
  • More than 3,000 Proclaim end-user licence sales, bringing the total Proclaim user figure to over 14,000;
  • A management restructure to expand the Eclipse board to five members, maximising responsiveness to client needs and technological developments; and
  • The total staff number exceeding 100 (as of 11 July 2011, Eclipse employs 105 staff).

Eclipse’s founder and chief software architect, Steve Ough, said: “In the first 11 days of this new financial year (2011/12), we have already signed up six new client firms, one of them being a six-figure contract. In my opinion, this relays an extremely powerful message – that the fantastic results just announced for 2010/11 are a springboard for further growth and success.

“We are not resting on our laurels. We are expanding right across the board – in our development, support, and relationship management functions – and we will strive to continue giving law firms what they need. Robust, scalable, flexible, future-proof solutions that provide real value and real bottom-line benefits.”

How best to achieve independent regulation under the Legal Services Act?

Craig Wakeford LSB

Independent regulation gives confidence to consumers, providers, investors and society as a whole that legal services work in the public interest and support the rule of law. The Legal Services Act 2007 does not require all approved regulators to be structurally separate from representative bodies. Instead, the Legal Services Board is required by the Act to produce internal governance rules (IGR) which apply the principle of regulatory independence in legal service regulation. We are currently running a consultation on the IGR which continues until 9 February.
