InfoTrack 200InfoTrack and Lawyer Checker have announced a new webinar designed to help conveyancers understand what can be done to protect themselves from fraudulent activity.

Identity theft and fraud continue to increase significantly for both the conveyancer and law firms. Subsequently, it is imperative for law firms to protect their firm using the necessary tools available.

The webinar will be run on either of the following two dates and it is free for any legal professional to register and join:

Chris Harris, managing director at Lawyer Checker comments “Service providers like InfoTrack provide us with a great platform to educate and inform conveyancers directly about fraud and the subsequent risks that threaten law firms. These webinars will provide much needed insight into the various types of fraud and what conveyancers can do to protect themselves.”

Adam Bullion, general manager of marketing at InfoTrack, adds “Conveyancers need to know as much about fraud as possible as criminals are devising ever more devious schemes to target funds.

“We’re delighted to be introducing these webinars as we believe they will help evolve conveyancers understanding of the subjects they care about. In the New Year, we’ll be introducing even more webinars on a variety of relevant topics.”
