4 September 2015


OneSearch200OneSearch Direct are delighted to announce that from today, Friday 4 September, both their local searches, and their water and drainage searches, will now benefit from an enhanced level of protection.

The largest local authority data search company in the UK has successfully secured Professional Indemnity insurance to the value of £10 million for their two residential search products, and for their commercial local searches.

 

The comprehensive policy will safeguard solicitors against any mistakes that may originate from council and water company datasets. It will also extend the same protection against the unlikely event of errors and omissions by OneSearch.

 

Security is further strengthened with the inclusion of 6 years run-off cover, which ensures that any relevant claims are still honoured.

 

Don Belcher, head of channel, OneSearch Direct, comments:

“We are thrilled to offer such an impressive level of protection. It reflects our commitment to solicitors, and reinforces our view about the over-riding importance of compliance. OneSearch Direct are completely confident in the integrity of our data, and with good cause.

“Having invested £10 million over the last 25 years, we have fine-tuned our operational standards and search accuracy to ensure solicitors are not exposed to search related PI claims.

 

“We know our searches are accurate, we know we have an excellent turnaround time, and we know our prices are extremely competitive. This new policy underpins the attractive and valuable proposition that we can offer to law firms.”

The rise of the multi-disciplinary lawyer: A challenge for legal education

Catrina Denvir

The legal profession has been on the receiving end of much hype regarding the impact of technology. Recent commentators purport that the aspiring lawyer must be a triple threat, possessing knowledge of the law, coding expertise, and in-depth knowledge of legal technology. Yet, focusing on legal technology risks overlooking the need for skills that transcend latest fads. Legal technology is a means by which to handle data: to organise it, record it, extract it, analyse it, predict from it and leverage it. Quantitative and statistical literacy – the ability to understand, apply, visualise and infer from data – underpins technological literacy and yet receives very little attention from those who encourage innovation in the legal curriculum.
