Eclipse's Proclaim solution enables lawyers to share consistent billing data

This latest implementation of the J-Codes set will enable our clients to comply immediately with ongoing legislation, and to share data in a consistent and readily usable format.

Law Society Endorsed legal software supplier, Eclipse Legal Systems, has announced new J-Code functionality in its market-leading Proclaim solution.

Following the announcement of the approved J-Codes in late 2014 by the LEDES oversight committee (LOC), Eclipse has confirmed that the J-Codes set synchronises with Proclaim’s existing costs budgeting categories as set out in the Precedent H.

Production of the Precedent H form is a standard feature of the Proclaim Case and Practice Management Software systems. This existing costs budgeting functionality will enable lawyers to produce bills and budgets utilising the J-Codes set, even before such usage becomes mandatory.

In addition, Eclipse is currently awaiting the outcome of the consultation by LOC to reach completion regarding bill layouts and will be adding these new layouts to Proclaim’s updated Costs Drafting module. The module is due for release imminently (Q2 2015) and will provide 'redline bill' production for costs teams.

Eclipse's Business Solutions Director, Tracy Blencowe, comments:

"Eclipse's product development ethos means that we are constantly enhancing the feature-set offered by Proclaim. In short, if there is a marketplace challenge - or an opportunity - for our clients, then we aim to provide the appropriate tools for them to derive maximum benefit.

"This latest implementation of the J-Codes set will enable our clients to comply immediately with ongoing legislation, and to share data in a consistent and readily usable format."
