Ben Harris, sales and marketing director at leading property data & service provider tmgroup, has been announced as a speaker at LegalEx 2016 and will be explaining to conveyancers why they’re ‘worth it’.

BECAUSE YOU’RE WORTH IT

Conveyancing Theatre

Thursday 12 May | 5pm – 5.45pm

In this challenging time of increased competition and pressure on fees, proving your worth in the property transaction has never been more important.

The recent Home Moving Trends survey of more than 5400 home movers, conducted by the Property Academy in partnership with tmgroup, revealed that the vast majority of consumers rated their conveyancers highly for various aspects of service, including communication, proactivity and value for money.

Allied to this is the fact that just 1 in 10 home movers surveyed in 2015 chose the property solicitor that quoted the cheapest fees.

In this engaging session, Ben will reveal 5 key areas in which conveyancers can show their value to potential clients, providing real examples of firms that don’t sell themselves short.

Ben joined tmgroup as a Director in 2012, having previously headed up the UK’s largest Estate Agency network where he was heavily involved in the industry’s efforts to improve the home moving process and increase overall transactional transparency for all involved.

Recognised over the last few years as one of the most influential online property experts, Ben has a particular passion for how firms can be more effective in serving their customers’ needs using the latest technology available.

Described as “the UK’s fastest growing legal event”, LegalEx focuses on “The Business Behind Law”. Taking place on 11th and 12th May 2016 at ExCel in London, tickets are free – book yours now at http://www.legalex.co.uk/

GDPR and the rise of ‘datanapping’ – the new threat to the pockets of law firms

Nigel Wright

You’ve heard about ransomware – a hacker infiltrates your IT systems, locking them down until you pay a ransom. Some studies now estimate that over 50% of businesses have experienced this type of attack in the last year, and it’s particularly prevalent within the legal sector. Previously, firms could protect themselves by having a solid disaster recovery plan in place to ensure they can get back up and running in the event of a disruption. However, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – the new EU-wide regime which comes in effect on 25 May 2018, irrespective of Brexit – means that this approach alone is no longer adequate and security measures must be strengthened to prevent attacks.
