Criminals sometimes make use of the names of law firms or lawyers to make a scam appear genuine.
They may also try to imitate a firm’s emails in order to obtain personal or bank account details from you, or to trick you into transferring money into the fraudster’s bank account.
If you have any concerns about an email or letter received from us, please let us know either by contacting the partner responsible for your case or by email to email@example.com.
In the event that we change our bank details, the partner responsible for your case will telephone you personally to confirm the change. If you receive an email or letter notifying you of a change to the firm’s bank account details, you should ring the partner who is responsible for your case to check whether the change is genuine.
If you think you have been approached by a fraudster, you should report this to Action Fraud either by telephone to 0300 123 2040 or at www.actionfraud.police.uk
