Steve Arundale, Head of Professionals at NatWest, presents cheque to Nicola Hill, Community Fundraising Manager – CLIC Sargent.

Legal professionals from across the UK have helped raise nearly £1,500 for children’s cancer charity, CLIC Sargent as part of NatWest’s annual Legal Conference series.

The four free events, held in Milton Keynes, Glasgow, London and Manchester, were attended by over 450 delegates and looked at key business issues impacting legal firms.

Steve Arundale, Head of Professional Sectors for NatWest Commercial Banking asked delegates for donations in return for the 3.5hours of free CPD value earned at the event.

Steve said: “Delegates were requested to make a donation only if they thought the event was of good quality and had delivered personal benefit. As a result we have raised £1465.00 for a very worthwhile cause. Two years ago my 12 year old son lost a good friend to cancer and it was great to help a charity that supports children who are fighting this cruel decease.

“This is the fourth year that we’ve been running our legal conferences with Huhwaites and it was great to be raising money for charity as well as continuing our support of the legal sector.”

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.
