Lawyer Checker – the risk management tool for the modern conveyancer

3 September 2014


With scam alerts from the SRA almost daily, conveyancing firms in particular are becoming more vulnerable to identity theft, and client purchaser’s money is being put at risk.

By implementing Lawyer Checker into a conveyancing transaction, conveyancers are able to offer themselves, and their clients, a further cloak of protection.

By understanding where money is being transferred, knowing the account number provided by the vendor conveyancer has a history of frequent and large transactions, clients and conveyancers can feel more comfortable when sending large funds.

In order to adhere to Outcomes Focussed Regulations and all that a law firm’s COLP and COFA faces, a tool like Lawyer Checker only further serves to enhance the ‘belts and braces’ attitude to compliance now expected of the profession.

Joint (ad)ventures in the legal sector

Nigel Wallis lo res

We all know that nothing in life is certain. As the actor, director and philosopher Clint Eastwood once said: “If you want a guarantee, buy a toaster.” He also said he’d tried being reasonable and didn’t like it. They should teach this kind of philosophy in law school. One thing in life is reasonably certain though. If you’re a law firm worth your salt, at some point you will be approached by another entity (most probably a work introducer) with a whizzy idea to ‘partner’ with you to ‘help you accelerate your growth’. In commercial speak this means, ‘we’d like to keep feeding you work but we’d also like to share in your profits’. The arrangement may be pitched to you as a joint venture – a win-win no less.
