20 November 2013


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.”

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.
