New city based start-up Manders Law, a high net worth family law specialist is implementing the Compact Practice Management system from Eclipse, the Law Society’s sole Endorsed legal software provider.

Manders Law was established in 2018 by leading family law specialist Mary-Ann Wright. The firm intends to make legal services in family law more transparent and accessible to clients. Manders Law aims to be the city based family law firm of choice for high net worth individuals by enabling clients to have the most successful litigation outcome whilst ensuring profitability as a business.

In a competitive market the firm’s key to success will be to deliver excellence every day in everything they do.

The firm is implementing the Compact Practice Management software solution from Eclipse, which has been designed specifically for the needs of small and new start-up organisations.

Compact will provide a secure central store for client documents, with the inbuilt workflows automating administrative processes and ensuring a consistent approach to services - enabling staff to focus on the core goal of delivering superb client care.

Mary-Ann Wright, Director at Manders Law comments:
“As a new start-up, it was crucial that we chose a solution that was ready-to-go from a trusted supplier with a proven track record of delivering solutions to progressive firms like us. Compact will enable us to get up and running quickly with the streamlining of document production freeing up more value-added time with clients, helping us to realise the goal of building a leading reputation for outstanding client care.”
