What does Lawyer Checker do?
Our suite of fraud prevention and cyber security products include:
Thirdfort is the latest in Lawyer Checker’s innovative suite of products helping to defend law firms from the persistent threats lurking in the legal sector by providing enhanced due diligence to source of funds and ID checks.
Thirdfort is now available directly through the Lawyer Checker portal. It uses a mobile app to digitally confirm a client’s identity by combining facial recognition technology with document scanning and open banking, enabling you to confidently “Know Your Customer.”
Account and Entity Screen (AES)
AES provides your firm with enhanced risk management when transferring funds by checking the accounts details of a solicitor you are sending funds to against our unique database. This ensures your client funds are sent to a legitimate bank account associated with the vendor’s conveyancing firm.
During the screening process over 10 different conveyancing related databases are checked to highlight any red flags which can be related to possible fraudulent activity.
Consumer Bank Account Checker (CBAC)
CBAC offers enhanced due diligence when remitting sales proceeds and balancing payments to consumers. It works by validating the source and destination of funds by checking the bank account details match your client’s personal details when sending or receiving client funds.
When checking, you receive an instant response and results, so it does not impede on remitting funds to your client in any way.
A vital layer in protecting against email modification fraud, OnDMARC can actively block phishing attacks and obstruct 3rd parties impersonating your email domain to any recipient such as your clients, suppliers or employees.
Email fraud is a law firm’s biggest risk. To avoid sensitive data being stolen through email impersonation fraud, safeguard your firm by implementing OnDMARC, otherwise anyone can send an email directly to your customers, suppliers or employees pretending to be you.
