DLA Piper, one of the world’s largest legal services organisations with over 3,700 lawyers in 25 countries, has chosen Yorkshire-based Eclipse’s Proclaim Case Management software as its core defendant personal injury system in the UK.
DLA Piper provides a portfolio of legal solutions for local, national and global corporations across a wide range of sectors. The practice has an expanding insurance team, with the core business focusing on defending casualty (employer and public liability) claims. Rapid growth in this area, combined with key strategic plans resulted in the practice analysing the marketplace for a suitable case management software platform.
The decision was made to implement Eclipse’s Proclaim software solution for 150 DLA Piper users, with rollout being managed by way of a two-stage, phased process. Proclaim will provide a complete desktop solution for DLA Piper staff, providing a full suite of case management tools including data handling, document production, workflow procedures, and task management.
Daniel Pollick, CIO at DLA Piper, comments on his firm’s selection:
“We followed a rigorous selection process which focused on functionality and value. In addition, we also had to be confident that the chosen vendor could demonstrate both ability and commitment in developing their product and supporting DLA Piper into the future.
Eclipse’s Proclaim solution stood out to us as a market-leading offering, being the best fit for ease of use, process management and integration with our strategic partners and case referrers. We are delighted to be working together with Eclipse; the fact that the firm is West Yorkshire-based is an added bonus for us.”Published Sep 03, 2008
