James Sherwood-Rogers, Managing Director of Landmark Legal & Financial, said: “CLS provides a comprehensive suite of consumer legal services and we are delighted they have selected Landmark’s Anti-Money Laundering tool and Financial Asset Search as their solutions of choice for their extensive client base."
Launched in 2006 as part of The Co-operative Group, the largest consumer-owned co-operative in the UK with in excess of 5.5 million members and over 21 million customers, CLS claims to be an industry leader in many areas of law including conveyancing.
Eddie Ryan Managing Director of CLS said: "Championing our member’s interests has always been central to The Co-operative Group’s strategy.
