MEE: The Cyber Notary 

 

 

“The legal profession is very complex, with very long proceedings and thousands of notifications each day. And behind all this is the court representative: We communicate directly with the courts on behalf of our clients, streamlining proceedings, and we must have strict control over what is sent and when it is sent to each party”.

Jaime Ubillos – Chairman of the Association of Court Representatives of Navarre and member of the New Technologies Committee of the Spanish General Council of Court Representatives.

The challenge

The Association of Court Representatives of Navarre understands that in its profession, it is crucial to certify communications when performing their duties. For this purpose, this year it implemented MEE, developed by Wise Security Global. It is one of the most solid brands in terms of certifying electronic signatures.

The objectives

  • Improve the signing rate for insured parties.
  • Fostering an innovative image.
  • Implementing multi-channel and multi-device solutions: use of digital certificates and voice biometrics.
  • Greater security when managing signed documents.
  • Cost savings and eradications in administration processes and solid legal guarantee .
  • Shorter execution times and monitoring of processes.
  • Improving social image and environmental impact .

The results

MEE saves immeasurable time forthe legal profession, is intuitive and does not require integration to use it. The other important thing is the time saved from the very first day that they use it for their legal proceedings.

The situation

It is necesary to understands the vital importance of every communication duringlegal proceedings. This means the decision regarding which certification tool to choose for communications is very important. Not everything is appropriate, and it is crucial to use a certified sending platform which offers the utmost security and guarantees.

The Association of Court Representatives of Navarre understands that in its profession, it t is crucial to certify communications when performing their duties. For this purpose, this year it implemented MEE, developed by Wise Security Global. It is one of the most solid brands in terms of certifying electronic signatures by email, SMS or certified fax. One of the key differences is that it provides evidence of all the steps taken by certified notifications.

This tool is available to the 90 court representative members in Navarre, and it is hoped that 100% will be using it by the end of the year.

The challenge

As experts in procedural law, court representatives manage legal evidence and are responsible for enforcing the judgement. “At this point, around 25% of judgements are enforced in Spain. I am confident that with more competitive tools like MEE, we can increase this figure” Jaime Ubillos. Certified emails are used most extensively in their role as procedural representatives.

They must appear in the court for information on each point of proceedings, sending it to the relevant people (and in some cases, signing and returning it). In the midst of paperwork and red tape, it is crucial to ensure that communications are sent correctly and on time.

 

The solution

The importance of credibility in the legal profession

“We need to protect ourselves and protect our clients, so when looking for a certified notification tool, the most important thing is that the process is as detailed as possible. MEE is the only tool which offers us a time stamp for each stage of communication: Sent, delivered, read. This is what makes each step credible; these time stamps ensure a quality certification process”.

The Association of Court Representatives chose this Wise solution for its ease of installation, its competitive price, and because it is a Trusted Third Party authoriosed by the Spanish Government’s Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism. “Wise guarantees a secure, sound and robust platform, something which others did not offer. If we have a claim, we cannot allow mistakes or lose documentation. As a Trusted Third Party, Wise securely stores all certified documentation which we send for at least five years” explains Jaime Ubillos.

 

Time saved: from weeks to minutes

Using MEE saves “immeasurable” time for the legal profession. “It does not take too much time to install and get to know the tool, as it is intuitive and does not require integration to use it. But the most important thing is the time saved from the very first day that we use it for our legal proceedings. It allows us to cut times drastically”, confirms Jaime Ubillos. “By digitalising these communications, we can save many visits to the court itself, allowing us to deal with peaks in work in January and September”, he adds.

The member of the New Technologies Committee of the Spanish General Council of Court Representatives explains that the goal is that all emails sent by members are certified. “We prefer that everything is certified and we cannot distinguish between which communications are and which are not”. And the tool will be a “major email filtering and storage system to consult our communications with the court”. For this purpose, deadlines are very relevant, which is why it is important to know when it is sent and whether it has been received or read.
