PSG No1On Saturday 21 November, the Society of Asian Lawyers (SAL) held its Annual Awards and Ball at the Lancaster Hotel in London with PSG as headline sponsor.

This prestigious event showcases the achievements of lawyers from the Asian community and recognises the hard work and dedication of individuals who continue to excel in their chosen legal fields.

As committed supporters of the local legal network, the event was sponsored by three regional PSG offices – London Central, Hounslow and Battersea – who were in attendance along with representatives from our environmental data partner Groundsure.

We were also joined by the current vice president of the Law Society, Robert Bourns who was keynote speaker.

As sponsors, we were delighted to present two awards on the night for Civil/Commercial Lawyer of the Year, won by Sujata Sharma and Lifetime Achievement, the award for which went to Kim Hollis QC.

Other awards went to Camilla Choudahury-Khawaja for ‘Rising Star’ and Kiran Mehta for Criminal Lawyer of the Year.

The evening included a special raffle which raised £1500 for two of the Society’s nominated charities: Delete Blood Cancer and Unique Home for Girls (Punjab).

Chandra Sharma, director of PSG London Central said “It is very important to us to help support our local legal communities. As a leading conveyancing search provider, we work with solicitors on a daily basis and have built up strong relationships with lawyers throughout the capital and beyond. It’s an honour to help our customers celebrate the appreciation that this event gives them.”

PSG would like to offer its congratulations to all of those who received awards and recognition for their achievements. We look forward to continuing our partnership with the SAL and would like to thank Jo Sidhu, QC and President of the SAL, for such a tremendous event. Well done to all involved.

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.
