Lawyer Checker200Milton Keynes property lawyers Kingsley David Solicitors are keen to ensure that the conveyancing service they provide treats each and every transaction and client on its individual merits. Each property transaction is not just a file; each is a valued client.

Kingsley David aim to deliver a promise which provides a thorough and professional conveyancing service. This dedication and attention to detail has led to Kingsley David Solicitors implementing the Lawyer Checker AES (Account and Entity Screen) search into its processes for managing the risk associated with residential conveyancing transactions.

Applying a blanket policy when carrying out the AES search to all of its residential conveyancing transactions, Kingsley David ensures that as a firm they are able to demonstrate Outcomes Focussed thinking across the board for this specific and very current risk.

Kingsley David have armed themselves well with the potential protection a simple AES search can offer; they are taking reasonable steps when verifying that the recipient firm is a genuine one – an expectation of the SRA following its recent update in March.

Seven years standing and still going strong after what has been a tumultuous time for the property industry, this firm prides itself on offering the very best service investing themselves and their time in ensuring that transactions run as smoothly as possible.

As licensed conveyancer Marc Lansdell explains:

“Here at Kingsley David we pride ourselves on the strong professional service we give to our clients. Our aim is to combine this with efficiency and where possible keep the stress and worries of moving home to a minimum. A check to see that the client’s money (buyer and lender funds) are being sent to a bona fide recipient is an obvious one and we are delighted that Lawyer Checker is able to offer us this service in a simple, cost effective and efficient way meaning that more of our time is taken up with actually looking after our client.

We have applied a blanket policy to the use of the AES search as it is imperative to us to do and demonstrate that we have done everything reasonably possible to ensure we know where the funds are being sent. Where monies are to be remitted to another firm, regardless of how well we know that firm, the integration of a Lawyer Checker search into our processes means that our team will be able, along with the firm’s COLP, to make an informed decision.”

Rating lawyers by their wins and losses – a good idea?

Robert Ambrogi

Lawyers will give you any number of reasons why their win-loss rates in court are not accurate reflections of their legal skills. Yet a growing number of companies are evaluating lawyers by this standard – compiling and analysing lawyers’ litigation track records to help consumers and businesses make more-informed hiring decisions. The shortcomings of evaluating lawyers by win rates are many. Not least of them is that so few cases ever make it to a win or loss. Of equal concern is that, in the nuances of law practice, it is not always obvious what constitutes a win or a loss.
