Conveyancing Liability Solutions Limited (CLS) market leading title and chancel insurance providers are delighted to announce that we will be changing insurance capacity providers from Great Lakes Reinsurance (UK) Plc to ERGO Versicherung AG for online insurance policies from 18 December 2014.

Excellent financial strength

As with Great Lakes Reinsurance (UK) Plc, ERGO is a subsidiary of the Munich Re Group. Therefore switching to Ergo will continue to offer:

  • The same AA- rating, the highest and most consistently rated cover in the industry
  • Most competitive premiums
  • In perpetuity policies
  • Expert in-house, legally qualified underwriters
  • Cover up to £3m online as standard

Changes to expect to your insurance policies

  • From 18 December 2014, all insurance policies from CLS online will be underwritten by ERGO Versicherung AG, UK Branch.
  • CLS will provide the same scope of insurance policies (ChancelSure & ConveySure) but they will be updated in structure with a brand new look and feel.
  • The cover of our policies has been expanded, so they can be issued online in more cases than ever before.
  • ‘Underwriting Criteria’ will be re-named to ‘Statements of Fact’ to ensure clarity on disclosure required by conveyancers.
  • Better cover for the same price

Existing quotations

Pre-18 December

All quotations issued by CLS on behalf of Great Lakes Reinsurance (UK) Plc will remain available to you and your clients until 18 December 2014 when the insurer changes.

Post-18 December

Quotations will need to be reissued (and therefore re-ordered) post the 18 December to include the new insurer and new cover.

&…a brand new look to the CLS suite of search products

To coincide with this change, CLS are updating and refreshing the look of ChancelCheck. ChancelCheckPremium and TitleChecker products. This change will also take place on 18 December 2014.

The skills shortage in law firms is the biggest threat to handling cybercrime

CLC Roundtable discussion at Malmaison Hotel, Charterhouse Square

The skills shortage in our businesses is the biggest threat to our industry when looking at cybercrime. Cybercriminals are not just after money but are looking for sensitive information too, so the legal services sector is an obvious target. In the last year we have had reports of around £7m of client money being lost to such crime. This is not an IT issue and it should not be left to the IT teams to sort out. It is a high-level responsibility and a board-level issue that must be taken seriously. We suspect that we will look back on 2016 and ask why we didn’t respond quicker.
