Could you recommend software for solicitors bookkeeping?

I currently do the bookkeeping/reconciliations for my solicitor client on VT on a monthly basis. To record the Client account side of things I have set up a 'Client Ledger' and within that, the Analysis account for each client.

Each 'Client to Office account'  transfer necessitates two transactions to ensure that it is reflected correctly.

 What dedicated bookkeeping package is available to be used by accountants to maintain solicitor clients' accounting records? The main requirement being the ability to efficiently record the interactions between Office and Client accounts?

Thanks for advice

There is this specific software:

And

And

And

Not used them though so can't tell you if it's any good. And they sound expensive (though maybe they'd let you evaluate it before buying?)

I would think it was worth getting dedicated software though.

Go with Lawbyte

In my experience of dealing with solicitors and their accounts Lawbyte is by far and away the best package I've seen.

Really simple to use, has some good features to stop people falling foul of the SARs and it's great to audit!
