Thames Water Property Searches take part in London Legal Walk

A team from Thames Water Property Searches donned their walking shoes on Monday 19 May and limbered up to join 514 other teams who were taking part in this year’s  London Legal Walk.

The Property Searches team took around two and half hours to complete the 10km walk, enjoying the sunshine and the sights en route, and spurred on by the fabulous cheerleaders!  We are happy to report there were no muscle strains, just the odd blister or two.

The London Legal Walk, organised by the London Legal Support Trust, has become the social and sporting event of the legal calendar and raises much needed funds to support free legal advice charities in London and the South East.  Over £500,000 has been raised so far and, with the recent cuts in legal aid, this funding will be essential to continue supporting the most vulnerable of people in our community.

There is still time to sponsor Property Searches for this worthwhile cause.  Just click here to go to our fundraising page.

A big Thank You to all our walkers and to all those who have donated so far.

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.
