What is a Proclaim Developer?

A proclaim developer is a professional who specialises in the development of the Proclaim Case Management System. Proclaim development is a type of software development used within the legal services industry.

Proclaim is the most widely used case management system within the legal industry, which comes with many useful out-of-the-box features. However, many firms do not use the software to its full potential and do not reap the benefits that developing the system can bring to a firm, such as improved productivity and increased profitability.

Improvements can be made to a proclaim system by developing it to incorporate workflow optimisation, automation of tasks and documentation, or by providing you with real time MI Reporting facilities so critical business decisions can be made with ease, and bottlenecks in processes can be addressed. Communication between a law firm and client base can be made easier and more complex IT systems can be integrated into Proclaim.


Proclaim Developer: Our team


Legal Practice Support have a team of experienced Proclaim Developers, which is headed by our Director, James Denby. Our team provide regular assistance to law firms of all types throughout the United Kingdom, including personal injury, housing disrepair, clinical negligence and conveyancing, debt and legal costs teams.

James is Head of Proclaim Development at Legal Practice Support, and oversees all projects to ensure work is completed to a high standard for all clients. As an experienced Proclaim Developer, James also maintains his own workload, consisting of complex development project or high priority tasks.

James ran his own Personal Injury Caseload at a Central Manchester law practice as a Paralegal after graduating from the University of Lancaster with a degree in Law. He then joined another Lancashire law firm as a Paralegal. James gained an in depth knowledge of how legal processes take place, and the perspective of the Proclaim system from a fee earner point of view as a result of these roles.


How a Proclaim Developer could help your firm 


MI Reports

A key component of any successful business is the ability to recall and analyse data, as and when needed in a meaningful manner.


Automation is essential to boost productivity by removing tedious and repetitive admin processes.

Workflow Optimisation

Workflow optimisation is essential and not simply from a productivity perspective but also from a compliance and client care one.

IT System Integration

Technologies really begin to provide a return when there is full integration and harmony between your systems, applications and infrastructure.

Bulk Data Solutions

If your juggling spreadsheets, access databases and other external data aside from being a huge data loss risk and a time sink to update it means you’re not taking full advantage of that expensive Proclaim Database you just bought.


Key Projects

Amongst the many projects completed for clients as a Proclaim Developer, our teams’ key successes to date have included:

  • Creating an integrated costs, debt and accounts process. This has vastly reduced file handler mistakes in recovering disbursements and in calculating fixed costs. He has also automated the debt chasing and accounting process for recovered legal fees.
  • Providing automated MI reports to allow department managers to assess their team’s caseload each morning. This identified the bottlenecks in the workflow for each department and identified cases on which actions needed to be completed to progress matters forward to settlement. This ultimately resulted in large increases in profit and turnover as a result of focussing file handlers on key processes.
  • Integrating external data for new enquiries from a client’s website, to auto generate new cases within Proclaim, and automating the process for following up potential claims. This vastly improved new client retention and the proportion of enquires converted to instructions.

Satisfied client stories

"Since we first began utilising the services of Legal Practice Support, we have seen a dramatic improvement in the capabilities of our Proclaim system. The system has seen substantial enhancements with regards to automation; tasks that previously could take staff hours, can now be completed within minutes."

Mark Brierley

Director, Beacon Law

"Prior to their (Legal Practice Support) involvement, we had little to no reporting; and what we did have was generally manually accumulated data on spreadsheets. Since Legal Practice Support began enhancing our system, they have enabled us to receive key management information as and when required, which allows us to evaluate key areas of the business, as well as provide overviews of fee earners' case progression and their performance amongst other things."

Mr L Ali

Director, Hunter Price Khan

" We have had the out of the box Proclaim system for many years, and whilst we were content with its performance, it wasn't until we utilised the services of Legal Practice Support to help streamline and automate our workflows that we really saw its potential to save time and money by maximising the efficiency of our workflows."
