Ochresoft launch Intelliworks Wills

18 March 2015


PrintLegal workflow specialist Ochresoft is promising a new approach to will-writing management that goes beyond Will-drafting software, with the launch of its new Intelliworks Wills product.

It is the first product to manage the entire process end-to-end and with such granularity, from the initial client meeting to the complete and executed will.

Wills handles key questions such as testamentary capacity, undue influence, even access requirements, to generate a comprehensive audit trail to protect both practitioners and their clients’ wishes from future claims and challenges.

Wills is the first software to balance automatic drafting with clause-by-clause tailoring; it delivers a premium will product and service at a significantly lower cost.

Wills generates a complete will from the will builder workflow and detailed Client-facing questionnaire. Customising each document to suit an individual’s requirements is easy with the inclusion of ready-made clauses such as flexible trusts of residue and property trusts. Wills identifies and suggests additional clauses – for example contemplation of marriage and a comprehensive selection of administrative provisions. It exceeds the requirements of the Law Society’s Lexcel and WIQS protocols. All STEP Standard Provisions are accommodated by default and firms have the option to opt-out if they wish.

Intelliworks is written by lawyers for lawyers: every clause in Wills has been drafted by experienced lawyers and approved by counsel.

Pauline Freegard, business development director of Ochresoft, says

“We know that some 16% of Professional Indemnity claims against private client teams arise because of poor will drafting services (Lockton Companies LLP, January 2015). Intelliworks Wills is about giving law firms the means to provide the quickest, most cost-effective way to deliver first-class wills at a competitive price. Wills ensures that nothing can be forgotten and that all matters are handled consistently, with complete visibility across all matters with comprehensive audit trails. In short, Wills is absorbing the efficiency, compliance and risk management burden inherent in will-writing, leaving lawyers more time to focus on client relationships or delivering higher value services.”

The skills shortage in law firms is the biggest threat to handling cybercrime

CLC Roundtable discussion at Malmaison Hotel, Charterhouse Square

The skills shortage in our businesses is the biggest threat to our industry when looking at cybercrime. Cybercriminals are not just after money but are looking for sensitive information too, so the legal services sector is an obvious target. In the last year we have had reports of around £7m of client money being lost to such crime. This is not an IT issue and it should not be left to the IT teams to sort out. It is a high-level responsibility and a board-level issue that must be taken seriously. We suspect that we will look back on 2016 and ask why we didn’t respond quicker.
