Case Management software specialist, Eclipse Legal Systems, has announced results for its financial year 2005-2006 with news that turnover and profit levels have reached record highs.
For the year ending June 2006, Eclipse recorded a turnover of ?3.2 million with profits exceeding ?1/2 million. The firm now employs over 50 staff and boasts over 300 client firms (representing 6,000 individual users). Recent client wins have encompassed a huge variety of organisations, with notable firms such as Co-operative Legal Services (CLS) investing in Eclipse’s Proclaim Case Management software in readiness for the ‘post-Clementi’ legal environment proposed by the Legal Services Bill.
Eclipse Marketing Manager, Darren Gower, comments on the firm’s success:
“Whilst many legal IT providers are still struggling to match the performances of their ‘heyday’, we have experienced unswerving and ever-increasing demand for our Proclaim case management solution. This shows no sign of abating – our active, consistent promotion of Proclaim’s strengths has long been paying dividends, and our order book for the next 12-18 months is looking enviably strong.”

– Jacksons Solicitors (Macclesfield): high-street practice implementing a 20-user system
