Global wealth manager UBS is the latest company to engage the services of Lawyer Checker in a bid to fight the criminal conveyancers.

With a 150-year heritage in wealth and asset management, UBS has registered with risk and compliance provider Lawyer Checker in a bid to minimise the risk of vendor conveyancer fraud on transactions when sending mortgage funds to law firms. An international brand, UBS places the utmost importance on ensuring the protection of client money is at the top of its client service agenda.

Cyber-crime is prolific now; UBS recognise this and through the use of the Lawyer Checker system, it has an additional resource with which to mitigate the risk of losing client mortgage funds to fraudsters.

Is it time solicitors started taking ethics training more seriously?

The requirement for solicitors to behave ethically in modern legal practice is more relevant than ever. Solicitors are still held in fairly high regard by the public, although that esteem is on the wane according to last year’s Trusted Professions poll by Ipsos Mori. Lawyers are less trusted than teachers and doctors but at least we prevail over accountants and bankers. We still hold a position of trust but we must work to hold that position. The current Solicitors Regulation Authority proposals to revise the Handbook are evidence that work still needs to be done.
