The unauthorised use of law firm names and details of their partners and members of staff in written and electronic communications to unsuspecting members of the public in attempts to elicit financial gain is increasing.
These communications may include publicly-available information such as from transactions or reported Court cases. They may seek to redirect: (i) monies to be sent to this firm’s bank account; (ii) transaction monies to be sent to a third party; or (iii) payments to be made in litigation.
If you receive correspondence claiming to be from this firm or one of our partners or members of staff and are concerned that it may not be genuine, we would encourage you to check the authenticity of the correspondence by contacting us or the named individual using the contact details above or on the individual’s website biography page.
If the correspondence is part of a confirmed scam we would encourage you to report the matter to “Action Fraud”, the National Fraud & Cyber Crime Reporting Centre at https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/ or on 0300 123 2040. We may seek to report the matter to the SRA who can issue a scam alert on their website found at https://www.sra.org.uk/consumers/scam-alerts/.
