Tracy Blencowe: Compliance, risk management and diligence are top of the list for the legal sector at the moment

Market-leading provider, Eclipse Legal Systems, has announced integration with a new-to-market ID and Anti Money Laundering (AML) service.

Eclipse is the very first software vendor to have partnered with CRIF Decision Solutions Ltd and its new online ID Check and AML Check services.  CRIF is well known for its work in the insurance industry, with a long pedigree of providing decision making and fraud prevention solutions.  Projects with the UK insurance industry such as integration with the Claims and Underwriting Exchange Register (CUE) and the Injury Claims Portals (RTA and EL / PL) have positioned CRIF as the leading developer in its field.

This new integration between Eclipse’s will enable users to request ‘one click’ ID and AML checks, directly from the Proclaim user desktop.  Users select the type of search required (ID or AML) and upon entering details of the subject on a single screen, search results are returned directly to Proclaim – embedded within relevant client fields and the file history.

Tracy Blencowe, Business Solutions Director at Eclipse, comments:

“Compliance, risk management and diligence are top of the list for the legal sector at the moment.  As part of any client inception process, reliable and accurate ID and AML checking must be carried out.  But for busy lawyers to accept this into their processes, the activity needs to be simple, reliable and user-friendly.  By integrating seamless ID and AML checks directly into the Proclaim desktop – and any inception workflow procedures – we are providing our lawyer clients with an excellent solution to the ‘Know Your Client’ problem.”

Sara Costantini, Director at CRIF Decision Solutions Ltd., adds:

“We have partnered with Eclipse Legal Systems to bring together a diverse set of skills and to implement end-to-end integration of our verification services in order to take on some of the most pressing market challenges.  By leveraging Eclipse’s solid experience in the legal sector and its ability to quickly and effectively integrate external data sources, we have successfully created a fast optimised mechanism to generate smart desktop-integrated reports.”

Know your client checks – A lesson from BHS

Paul-Bennett for Legal Futures

As you will be aware, it is a legal requirement for advisory firms to carry out ‘know your client’ checks. The purpose of doing so is to confirm your client’s identity and to seek to provide protection in respect of anti-money laundering (AML) and terrorist financing laws. The BHS experience before the House of Commons’ work and pensions committee and business, innovation and skills committee shows that firms need to think beyond AML obligations.
