The team at Lawyer Checker are proud to announce that the company and its product have been shortlisted for two highly regarded business awards in the company’s home county, Cheshire.

The Trinity Mirror Cheshire Business Awards are to be held at the Historic Chester Cathedral on Friday 3 October, with ITN news presenter Lucy Meacock hosting.

Commenting on the shortlist announcement, Chris Harris, managing director, said: “This is a fabulous recognition for the team and the product. The business has grown exponentially over the past twelve months, in particular with in excess of 400 law firms now implementing an account and entity screen search within their conveyancing transactions, potentially protecting millions of pounds in purchases across the country.”

The first award is the ‘innovation and enterprise’ award. It celebrates new ideas, processes, products, services, technologies and applications that have had an impact on an organisation’s success.  To make the shortlist, Lawyer Checker demonstrated that its product was original and its impact, practicality of application demonstrated measurable benefit to the business.

Secondly, for the ‘business start-up’ award, the company made the shortlist by showcasing a fantastic new product to market, finding a niche area to focus on and overcoming all odds to achieve success.

The Lawyer Checker team is very excited and, of course, thrilled to make the short list – keep your fingers crossed for a win.

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.
