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.”

Is it time solicitors started taking ethics training more seriously?

The requirement for solicitors to behave ethically in modern legal practice is more relevant than ever. Solicitors are still held in fairly high regard by the public, although that esteem is on the wane according to last year’s Trusted Professions poll by Ipsos Mori. Lawyers are less trusted than teachers and doctors but at least we prevail over accountants and bankers. We still hold a position of trust but we must work to hold that position. The current Solicitors Regulation Authority proposals to revise the Handbook are evidence that work still needs to be done.
