Ethical Wall in AbacusLaw & Amicus Attorney Helps Reduce Conflicts

AbacusLaw and Amicus Attorney offer full-fledged desktop case management support with an integrated cloud-based solution. Now, with their ethical wall feature, they can help ensure that your internal protocols about walling staff off are easily implemented and enforced.


Firms large and small need to be able to construct a wall between employees. Sometimes this is because an attorney came from another firm and there is a possible conflict of interest. Often, however, it is that a single case or type of case does not need to be viewed by an employee or group of employees.

The ethical wall feature that is built into Amicus Attorney and AbacusLaw allows law firms to implement a software-facilitated solution rather than using physical barriers, such as locked file cabinets. With a software solution such as this, one click blocks a matter and all of that matter’s linked notes, documents, and emails. The case and all its ancillary matter are simply invisible to a blocked user. Additionally, AbacusLaw and Amicus Attorney’s ethical wall can be set to restrict entire groups of cases so that only specific workgroups can see specific types of cases.

Client interests are protected when a firm has a strong commitment to ethical walls. Constructing those walls is much easier when you have your case management system do it for you.
