“Property lawyers are the ultimate arbiters of risks in the transaction process, so our Premium Data Layers mapping technology has the power to flag potential issues, uncovering accurate and vital information on the surrounding area. This helps to keep clients best informed about concerns and critical issues.
“The information can be used for decision making, on whether or how clients should bid for a site, for example. This is extremely valuable information that clients rely on their lawyer to provide swiftly; our Premium Data Layers mean the data is available far earlier in the process, saving clients weeks of potential delays or escalating costs. Forewarned is forearmed as they say.”
