Michael Arnold has been appointed IT director for Legal Futures Associate TM Group (UK) Limited.

Mr Arnold joins TM from TrigoldCrystal (formerly Crystal Software Solutions), where he was head of software development and IT operations. He brings a wealth of experience in managing business growth and transformation within the IT industry including solutions for mortgage lenders and other large financial institutions.

Joining TM at a time of considerable growth, Mr Arnold will lead a growing team of developers who design and deliver a range of online services to local authorities, mortgage lenders, conveyancers and property search suppliers.

He says: “Having experience of creating bespoke solutions for the mortgage and financial services industry, I am delighted to have this opportunity to drive TM Group’s IT operations forward not only to help improve existing services, but also to develop new solutions.

Paul Albone, managing director of TM Group, says: “With the housing market at an all-time low, it is a good time to invest in new developments. TM is realising some ambitious growth plans as we begin to enter new markets associated with the conveyancing process and so Michael’s appointment will bring valuable strength to our management team.”

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.
