Search Acumen200Bold Legal Group has partnered with Search Acumen and Metro Bank to host a free CPD-accredited seminar for conveyancers, bringing together a panel of industry experts to debate the latest issues affecting the market and its future growth.

The ‘Work Together, Grow Together’ event will take place in central London on 2 July. It gives conveyancers a chance to update their knowledge, gain CPD points and discuss the impact of pressing legal and compliance issues including: risk management; Veyo (one month after launch); fraud and money laundering; and new CPD rules and regulations.

Introduced by Rob Hailstone, founder of the Bold Legal Group, the event will be opened by Craig Donaldson, CEO of Metro Bank and chaired by Mark Riddick, chairman of Search Acumen.

Speakers will include:

  • Hannah McKinlay, director of PropertyLaw.Guru
  • Stefanie van den Haak, commercial director of Veyo
  • Aileen Gillan, chief risk officer at Metro Bank
  • Loschinee Naidoo, senior associate at Legal Eye

Each speaker will be followed by a Q&A session allowing delegates to lead the conversation and discuss the key challenges affecting their own businesses.

The seminar will be held in Metro Bank’s Delight Suite at One Southampton Row on Thursday 2 July 2015 from 10am to 2pm. The few remaining places will be offered on a first come first serve basis. To reserve a place, please email


Mark Riddick, chairman of Search Acumen, said:

“We’re delighted to be involved in this partnership to bring together conveyancers and industry experts at a pivotal time for the market. With the increasing demands of technology and compliance, and a relatively slow start to the year¹, it really hasn’t been the easiest period for conveyancers and the pressure is on many businesses to keep evolving with the times.


Our broad panel of experts have a wealth of knowledge to share and will help to kick-start a discussion on some of the most pressing challenges in the conveyancing market. It is a great opportunity for conveyancers to gain a fresh understanding of these issues and hone their competitive edge.”


Rob Hailstone, founder of Bold Group, said:

“This seminar will give delegates a great opportunity to be updated on and ask questions about some of the most important issues that are affecting them currently. If getting to central London is easy all residential conveyancers should try to attend.”
