            Another useful place to use conflict check is while creating a new Matter. At that point, you want to make sure there’s no conflict of interest in representing a new client of yours. In Matter creation dialog, you can enter your client’s name, and run a conflict check on the spot.

            Have in mind that this feature will only match the term you search for in all of the places that we mentioned in the beginning of this document. It is up to you to decide if something is really a conflict of interest, or someone’s name was included in search results in a non-conflicting way.
