Technology is increasingly underpinning how the modern law firm functions – whether this is to promote agile working, protect against cyber-attacks or introduce efficiencies to maximise investment. Many firms share the vision of embracing IT to achieve business goals but struggle to make it a reality.

– Understand your current position – the good, the bad and the ugly

11.15 – 12.00 Making IT Easy, Quality builds Quantity – David Sutton : Redbrick Solutions
Are you providing ‘The John Lewis Experience’? Many firms struggle to manage and maintain high service levels with the pressures of growth. Redbrick Solutions will guide you through how to deliver a quality service and ensure that doesn’t slip when increasing the number of active matters. Times of growth are also times of highest risk for many firms, practical examples will assist as we explore handling quantity through efficiency and managing risk through periods of growth.
12.00 – 13.00 Risk, Regulation and Conveyancing Fraud – Victoria Cope : Lawyer Checker
This presentation is brought to you by Lawyer Checker – the industry experts on fraud and anti-money laundering in conveyancing. Fraud comes in many forms and during this talk, we will look at the rise of insider fraud and the risks associated with not applying the right checks and due diligence throughout a property transaction. The impact that this can have on your clients and your firm is significant, so we will highlight actions you can take immediately. There have been several, real-life cases prevalent within national news, which show anyone involved in a property transaction is a target. With the new SRA Risk Outlook released in July, we will provide you with a summary of the key elements you need to act on. Do you know who you are dealing with? How can you prevent these crimes? We hope to answer these questions and many more.
