Eclipse Legal Systems, the legal sector’s largest independent software solutions provider, has announced the release of a Court of Protection Matter Management system.

Law firms dealing with Court of Protection (CoP) matters help to look after individuals who are unable – legally and practically – to deal with their financial affairs and related decisions.  Eclipse’s new CoP solution is seamlessly integrated with the , centralising all elements of work.

Proclaim CoP caters for the three core management areas – registering EPAs, preparing and / or registering LPAs, and applying to the Court of Protection for a deputyship order.  Proclaim CoP is available immediately for both existing Proclaim clients and those firms not yet using the system.  Uniquely, Proclaim CoP can also, if required, be used standalone alongside other Practice Management offerings.

Eclipse’s Business Solutions Director, Tracy Blencowe, comments on the development:

“For all CoP work, especially ‘fixed fee’, an efficient is vital.  Proclaim provides an end-to-end solution for this practice area, including access to the full suite of Proclaim productivity tools.

“Much of the difficulty around CoP work rests with data collation, form filling, and tracking ongoing applications (often involving lots of geographically disparate contacts).  Proclaim manages these areas, providing ‘one entry’ data input, seamless form production (saving many hours of repetitive manual input), and a real-time global fee earner view to provide complete clarity on the status of all matters.”

Rating lawyers by their wins and losses – a good idea?

Robert Ambrogi

Lawyers will give you any number of reasons why their win-loss rates in court are not accurate reflections of their legal skills. Yet a growing number of companies are evaluating lawyers by this standard – compiling and analysing lawyers’ litigation track records to help consumers and businesses make more-informed hiring decisions. The shortcomings of evaluating lawyers by win rates are many. Not least of them is that so few cases ever make it to a win or loss. Of equal concern is that, in the nuances of law practice, it is not always obvious what constitutes a win or a loss.
