Specialist Swiss financial planning firm Mercatoria Group is implementing Eclipse’s Proclaim Matter Management software system for its Geneva head office.

The Mercatoria Group offers a wide range of wealth management services and tax-planning structures for families, businesses and entrepreneurs. The group operates in a number of jurisdictions to provide maximum geographical expertise, be it domestic or on a global scale.

Jurisdictions frequently used to achieve asset protection and fiscal benefits include Switzerland, UK, St Lucia, Barbados and Canada.

To capitalise on new opportunities and to provide a centralised in-house method of organising and managing complex transactions, Mercatoria Group recognised the need to replace its incumbent systems with one core matter management solution.

Proclaim Matter Management is being implemented at the firm’s preferred hosting partner in Geneva, providing a fully integrated desktop solution for the care of all clients and matters. As well as enabling ‘one place’ storage for all in-out correspondence, Proclaim will enable Mercatoria Group to more effectively manage time-sensitive tasks and deliver bespoke performance reports at the click of a button – based on any element of transactional data in the Proclaim system.

Rod Ramsden, director at Mercatoria Group, said: “We place huge importance on being able to offer an impeccable client service experience. To do that, we need internal solutions that provide us with instant access to all elements of client information and related data. Proclaim provides a fantastic service ‘core’ and is a great enabler for us in our strategy to become one of the world’s leadingoperations.”

Be careful you do not leave anything behind: will we see the end of chambers?

Charles Feeny

Experience of practice by digital support suggests that working practices will become much more informal and spontaneous, not requiring support by specific entities or even contractual arrangements. This is likely to be particularly true of the Bar, which is or should be a profession focusing on individuals. The future of the Bar is more likely to resemble a library as seen in Scotland and Ireland – albeit an electronic library – rather than the traditional chambers structure.
