Conflicts management is at the heart of the new business intake process at every law firm. Avoiding mistakes in the conflicts management process translates into protection from hefty fines, while a fast moving conflicts department can provide a true competitive edge against a slower-moving competitive firm.
First generation conflicts management software applications focus on providing a solid search engine at their core, attempting to improve the quality of the search results. While search is a fundamental component of every conflicts management system, the real complexity and potential for time savings in the conflicts management process lies in:
- the activity prior to the execution of the search: all the preparation activity and determination of a proper search strategy; and
- post-search activities including elimination of false-positives and ranking of potential conflict hits, appropriately based on business goals of the firm and ensuring compliance with regulations.
Today’s law firms require a redefined approach to conflicts management and resolution, one that automates repetitive tasks to improve performance and accuracy, ultimately providing the firm with a competitive edge.
Compliguard Analyze™ forms the basis for a second generation conflicts management software application, designed from the ground up to address the challenges of law firms in today’s highly competitive landscape.
