9.2.2 Update (January 06, 2023)

Create trust liability sub-accounts, manage client relations, matter-to-matter operating funds transfer and more.


Trust Liability Sub-Accounts 

You can now create sub-accounts to the 2300 Client Trust Liability or the 2310 Client General Retainer (Trust) account by navigating to Accounting > Chart of Account > Add screen. By creating the sub-account, you can:

  • Specify the firm’s default Client Trust Liability GL account by navigating to Setup > Firm Settings > Accounting > Default Trust Transaction Account  
  • Assign a different default liability account for each trust bank assigned at the matter level
  • Use any sub-account of 2300 or 2310 that you have created when entering a trust bank transaction

Matter Relation 

By replacing the Edit Contact button with the new Edit button, CosmoLex gives its users the ability to edit Matter Relations from the Matters screen. By clicking the Edit button, a user can update the Contact, Relation type, and notes for the matter relation. You can now also export all the relations added to the Matter.

To learn more, see Manage Client Relations

Matter-to-Matter Funds Transfer

The Matter-to-Matter Funds Transfer feature now includes the existing trust funds transfer, along with the newly introduced operating funds transfer which gives you the ability to move Operating (Retainer) funds from one matter of a client to another.

To learn more, see Matter to Matter Funds Internal Transfer

Operating Transfer Record Report

To go along with the ability to make matter to matter operating funds transfers, we now have a new report, Operating Transfer Record. This report gives you a listing of all the funds transfers you made from one operating account to another within a selected time period.
