Howard Meakin of Spratt Endicott Truman

Commercial property solicitor Howard Meakin of Spratt Endicott Truman has won tmgroup’s quarterly prize draw, bagging himself a coveted technology prize bundle.

Each quarter tmgroup asks conveyancers an industry-related question at legal conferences and exhibitions and, throughout January to March, tmgroup asked conveyancers: “When was the last time your firm increased your conveyancing fees?”

Although there was no ‘right answer’, all respondents were put into a draw with the winner chosen at random in April.

Featuring an iPad, a Fitbit, Bosch coffee machine and some other high-tech goodies, the prize bundle was presented to Mr Meakin (pictured) by tmgroup’s southern area manager Nick Ball.

Howard Meakin said:

“I am a complete technophobe but hopefully will be inspired by the iPad to become less so. It is a rather smart machine. I think the wristband heart monitor might be something to avoid as if I looked at it when I play squash (which I do regularly) I might be rather alarmed. Time to go and make a cup of coffee! Thank you again.”

tmgroup’s southern area manager Nick Ball said:

“We really look forward to getting to meet with our customers face-to-face at industry events and hope to see many more at exhibitions and sessions over the coming weeks and months.”

Look out for tmgroup at LegalEx and Professional conferences across the country and you could be in with a chance of winning the Q2 prize bundle!

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.
