OneSearch200OneSearch Direct, the largest local authority data search company in the UK, has announced it has strengthened its management team to take advantage of accelerating demand for its property information products.  Elizabeth Jarvis has been appointed as managing director and Marcus Noble becomes OneSearch Direct’s new chairman.

Elizabeth Jarvis said: “We are seeing a huge uplift in demand especially from high street conveyancing professionals. Most of the demand probably comes from a general increase in transactions. However, conveyancers are telling us that the speedy provision of quality information that can be relied on is a huge help in concluding sales. We are investing right across the business to ensure that quality and our level of service is maintained.”

Elizabeth Jarvis has worked in the industry for 20 years and has been chief operating officer of OneSearch Direct for the last ten.

Marcus Noble has a strong background in corporate finance.  Noble has advised the boards of NADSAQ and LSE technology companies and has been on the board of OneSearch Direct as a non-executive director for 15 years. He said: “With our strengthened management team, backed by Souter Investments, we are now entering new and exciting era for the company.  Our vast database of property information puts OneSearch Direct in a unique position in the search industry and we will be capitalising and developing this in both existing and new markets as we move forward.”

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.
