Eclipse links with Elite for Top 100 firm, Thomas Eggar

Thomas Eggar, one of the south’s leading practices, has selected the Proclaim Personal Injury Case Management solution from Eclipse Legal Systems.

Providing Commercial, Property, Litigation and Private Client services, Thomas Eggar is ranked in the Top 100 of UK law firms, with 56 partners and 400 staff across 4 offices. Following extensive research of the legal IT marketplace, the practice has opted to implement Eclipse’s Proclaim software in its expanding Personal Injury team.

Proclaim will provide a complete desktop solution for Thomas Eggar’s PI fee earners, enabling them to progress cases faster and more profitably while using ‘best practise’ automation to avoid errors and delays. Tools such as instant document production, in-built safeguards and reminders, SMS text messaging and auto-diarising of tasks will enable the team to increase throughput and build upon existing profitability.

In addition, Eclipse has worked with Thomson Elite to build integration between Proclaim and the Elite Practice Management solution, enabling the two systems to share financial data. This step increases the portfolio of third-party Practice Management System providers that Eclipse holds under its ‘Open Systems Union’ ethos.

Stephen Richards, Partner and Head of Thomas Eggar’s PI team, comments:

“To maintain and expand upon the high standards of both quality and profitability in our team, the correct Case Management software is vital. Eclipse’s Proclaim solution stands out as offering by far the best fit for our needs, in terms of range of functionality, flexibility and scalability.”
