Introducing the New and Improved Conflict Checker in Filevine

To protect your clients and your firm, it’s crucial to flag and address potential conflicts as quickly as possible. That's why we are excited to announce the release of an enhanced conflict checker that allows for broader and more powerful searching across all contacts in your organization.

Comprehensive Searching 

The updated conflict checker enables searching across all contacts associated with your organization, not just those related to a specific project. It searches first name, last name, middle name, prefix, suffix, and nickname fields for fuzzy matching. You can use the same search syntax as elsewhere in Filevine for advanced queries.

Flexible Workflow 

The new conflict checker allows you to mark a search as "undecided" until you make a final determination of conflict or no conflict. Once you select undecided, conflict, or no conflict, the vitals for project-related results are locked to capture a snapshot of the status at that time for future reference.

Insightful Results 

Insightful Conflict Check Results
