Saunderson House200Saunderson House is delighted to announce that Action for Children has become its official charity partner for 2015 – 2016. Employees of Saunderson House voted for the charity from a strong shortlist nominated by staff and will donate their time and raise funds throughout the two-year period of the partnership.

Action for Children works in the heart of local communities across the UK, providing help and support to the young and vulnerable as they grow up. One in every 10 children across the UK is suffering from neglect, that’s one child in every street across the country suffering in this way.

Saunderson House will support fundraising activities by giving staff paid time for volunteering, allowing the use of the firm’s facilities and providing some core funding. Efforts to support the charity will be focused through the firm’s Make a Difference committee which is made up of a cross section of members of staff and is chaired by Christopher Sexton, investment director, Saunderson House.

Christopher, who also chairs the charity’s Investment Sub-Group and is a member of its finance committee, commented: “Action for Children provides invaluable services for disadvantaged children across the UK including 13 active projects in Greater London. The charity focuses on helping the most neglected children and we sincerely hope our support will make a real difference to their ability to provide even more services and help more families.”

Mary O’Hagan, corporate partnerships manager, Action for Children, commented: “We think it is brilliant that Saunderson House has selected Action for Children as its charity partner for the next 2 years. We already benefit from the generosity and expertise of Saunderson House with Christopher Sexton being a member of our finance committee. We hope that the support from Saunderson House over the next two years will make a real impact on the children that we help.”

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.
