Cyber disruption to legal services – keeping all parties informed

27 November, 2023

The conveyancing sector is currently experiencing some disruption to transactions arising from a cyber incident affecting a supplier to legal services providers.

As well as keeping their own clients informed of any disruption to their matter in relation to such incidents, we expect any directly affected CLC-regulated practices to ensure that they have alerted lawyers acting on the other side of any relevant transactions. This openness is vital for limiting as far as possible disruption and consumer harm.

The CLC also expects that any affected firm will inform its Regulatory Supervison Manager.

We urge all CLC-regulated practices to review the support and advice available in the Cybercrime and Fraud Toolkit on our website.
