InfoTrack 200Conveyancers using InfoTrack can now protect themselves against fraudulent law firms with Lawyer Checker.

With 16 SRA ‘scam alerts’ in the last month alone, InfoTrack have responded by integrating Lawyer Checker clearly on the platform.

This ensures law firms have the tools to carry out their due diligence, on the same platform where all conveyancing tasks can be conducted, including AML checks, Land Registry Searches, Conveyancing Searches, SDLT Submissions and AP1 Transfers.

Lawyer Checker provides the ability to gather information about the vendor’s conveyancer to whom the money is being sent, by conducting checks against up to 10 different databases to ensure a transaction is appropriate.

Chris Harris, managing director at Lawyer Checker comments “Both the SRA and the Law Society continue to highlight fraud and the profession absolutely must protect and reduce the risk of potential scams.

“I’m delighted that Lawyer Checker is now housed within an easy to use platform such as InfoTrack and that InfoTrack themselves are demonstrating a clear understanding of the needs of today’s conveyancer in terms of both usability and due diligence.”

Scott Bozinis, CEO at InfoTrack, adds “Fraudulent activity continues to increase to worrying levels and it is our responsibility to ensure that conveyancers have easy access to services that help minimise risk.

“By integrating Lawyer Checker onto a platform where all conveyancing tasks can be performed, we not only enable conveyancers to easily manage risk, we continue to challenge and evolve the conveyancing processes.”

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.
