Market-leading legal software solutions provider, Eclipse Legal Systems, has announced the latest iteration of its .

Proclaim is used in over 700 organisations by 20,000 individuals, for an increasingly broad range of requirements including case, matter, practice and process management.  This latest Proclaim iteration – v3.3.1 of the solution – will be provided free of charge to all Eclipse clients, under the firm’s standard maintenance agreements.  New clients will also benefit from the solution, be it as a new implementation or as a seamless transition from the current Proclaim version.

Proclaim v3.3.1 carries a brand new look and feel – sporting ‘flat design’ to provide an enhanced user experience.  Users will benefit from even clearer signposting of ‘next actions’, in addition to a cleaner working space and even the choice of a range of colour schemes.  The feature-rich nature of Proclaim has been further enhanced, with new functionalities including:

  • ‘Infinite additions’; enabling system designers to easily create additional data fields ‘on the fly’, resulting in rapid bespoke screen building across the Proclaim desktop
  • Multi-user access; empowering legal teams to work on the same matter at the same time
  • ‘Paragraphs’; a document building tool that provides fee earners with the option to pick context sensitive paragraphs from a pre-defined library of text, when creating bespoke or complicated documents (for example, commercial contracts)
  • Enhanced desktop billing; including the ability to electronically draft bills, all within a user-friendly and intuitive ‘bills guide’ interface

Steve Ough, chief software architect at Eclipse, comments:

“This latest version of Proclaim represents a significant step forward in our product roadmap, providing the kind of fluidity and accessibility that our clients – and the market in general – has come to expect from Eclipse.”

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.
