Emerald Law Solicitors has agreed to a refinancing package with the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) as part of the business’ continued growth which includes the development of a new department.

The Liverpool based firm has recently taken on a number of noise-induced hearing- loss cases. Due to the unique nature of the casework, the firm has taken on additional staff to assist, creating a new department to focus on this work. Funding facilities from RBS are being used to support this initiative. Emerald Law Solicitors recently moved its business to RBS due to the bank’s strong legal sector focus.

Emerald Law Solicitors is a multi-disciplinary law firm providing a personal legal service to businesses and individuals alike. This includes business services such as contracts, leases, business startups, employment advice and HR services, as well as personal services.

Oonagh Murphy, Sole Practitioner at Emerald Law Solicitors, said: “It’s an exciting time for the business as we look to expand our services. We provide a quality legal service with a determination to achieve the best possible solution for you. Our team and our clients are our most important assets and we will adopt a collaborative approach of mutual goals, communication and respect to ensure you achieve your desired outcome.”

She added: “Andy Webster, our bank manager with RBS, has been extremely supportive throughout our time with the bank. He has gone above and beyond the call of duty to assist us with our continued growth.”

Andy Webster, Relationship Director RBS Liverpool, said: “Emerald Law has a strong portfolio of legal services available to individuals and businesses, and we are confident the business will continue to grow in the future. We are delighted to work with Emerald Law and wish them every success for the future.”

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.
