Our Background

Lawyer Checker was founded in 2011 to provide comprehensive fraud protection to conveyancers and their clients. We identified that fraudsters were intercepting conveyancing funds and law firms were open to abuse. Lawyer Checker was designed to protect lawyers when transmitting funds from one conveyancer to another.

Lawyer Checker is now a widely renowned brand, not only recognised as an integral element within conveyancing risk management, but also providing services to help mitigate risk in the wider legal market.

Lawyer Checker is best known for its conveyancing risk tool Account & Entity Screen, which verifies the legitimacy of the law firm on the other side of a transaction.

Lawyer Checker also understands the ever-growing risk of cyber-crime to the legal sector and are a certified body for Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus. Our first Cyber Essentials customer was accredited in 2018. We now offer a range of cyber security products and services to help firms defend against internet borne threats.

To demonstrate our quality and determination to deliver a great service, we've achieved some fantastic accreditations.
