inCase200A new version of an award-winning legal app now includes a revolutionary feature designed to further enhance its security, functionality and effectiveness; as well as ensuring greater convenience to adopting firms’ clients.

The latest version of inCase, an app which enables personal injury & conveyancing solicitors to manage communications with clients entirely via their smartphone or tablet, now also provides clients with the means to remotely sign documents, entirely negating the requirement for an on-paper process.

This latest development from inCase, which also automatically stamps the date and time on the document and saves a copy of it to the client’s smartphone once they return it to their solicitor, has never been seen before and is a truly innovative use of technology in the legal sector.

Managing partner of personal injury firm Aequitas Legal and creator of inCase, Sucheet Amin commented:

“One of the challenges with inCase was to find a way to send documents securely to clients’ smartphones, enable them to sign these in their own hand and return them to their solicitor.

“After months of research and development, users of inCase are now able to do just that. We have created a seamless process which is fast, easy and safe for both the firm and client.

“While digital signatures have been around for some time, no function has existed to enable clients to review documents on their mobile devices, and sign their own signature rather than a pre-selected font and send it back to their solicitor.”

Sucheet concluded: “The inCase app now offers a genuine full service communication tool for any law firm. Not only can clients receive and send messages or updates, as well as follow their personal injury claim and house purchase / sale on the unique tracking tool, they can now sign documents on the go. In a fixed fee regime imposed by LASPO, inCase™ really gives firms an edge when it comes to delivering their services both time and cost efficiently.”

Sucheet developed inCase in 2012 in order to improve solicitor and client communications throughout the course of personal injury claims in his firm, Aequitas Legal. Realising the benefits to both his business and clients, Sucheet launched inCase as a fully integrated mobile app for other personal injury firms in October 2013. The Conveyancing version of inCase went live in January 2015 and is already creating interest from a number of national law firms

The app has since achieved far reaching success, with the technology being embraced by several high profile law firms across the UK, and picking up a number of industry accolades. Now entirely compatible with all of the major CMS’ in the UK and recently launched in its third iteration, inCase continues to lead the way in the delivery of legal technology across the post-LASPO personal injury landscape.

McKenzie Friends – a storm in a teapot

If the recent furore about McKenzie Friend Marketplace shows anything, it is that the profession remains acutely sensitive to the apparent threat of competition by unregulated entrants into the legal landscape. But for an outside observer, the whole McKenzie Friend debate remains curiously overblown: if not a storm in a teacup, a storm at least in a teapot. For all the characteristic sturm und drang of the Law Society’s response to last year’s senior judiciary consultation, there was pretty widespread agreement among most respondents that McKenzie Friends are here to stay.
