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 Proclaim Matter and Practice Management systems, 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 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 Matter Management system 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.”
