Injury: Quindell comfortable with proposed EL fees

Quindell Portfolio has finally received its alternative business structure (ABS) licence and also predicted that it will be able to operate profitably within the new fixed fees and small claims structure put forward by the government.

In a trading update issued this morning, Quindell said it has now received approval from the Solicitors Regulation Authority in relation to Quindell Legal Services Limited’s ABS application, which takes in its acquisitions of three law firms: Silverbeck Rymer, Pinto Potts and The Compensation Lawyers.

The approval, which has no application specific conditions, is effective from 21 December 2012.

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.
