Lawyer Checker to play key role at Modern Law Conveyancing Conference

Chris Harris, MD of Lawyer Checker, will be co-chairing the event taking place on 23rd May 2017 along with Tony Piccirillo, a partner at AVRillo.

The Modern Law Conveyancing Conference is an excellent opportunity for conveyancers to learn about the changes and challenges facing their market, including areas such as risk management and due diligence. The day includes talks from various speakers, covering a broad range of current topics which conveyancers should be conscious of in order to evolve within their industry.

The event will also give professionals an opportunity to network with conveyancers, senior solicitors and other experts within the conveyancing sector.

The Lawyer Checker team will be on hand to speak with conveyancers about the risks to their practice and the dangers facing the industry in general. Lawyer Checker provides services that protect client money during transactions from the increasing amount of identity fraud in this area of law. With so much money transacted each day, it is no wonder clients buying and selling houses can be an easy target for criminals.

More and more firms are looking more closely at their risk management than ever before. Due to new technologies and the rise in cybercrime, conveyancers must be aware of the risks.

The risk to client money and to firms themselves is a serious threat, so come and chat to Lawyer Checker on the day and find out how you can implement their services to easily and effectively protect your practice.
