There's a risk in practice – being the target of a fraudster. Don't get caught.

This page explains where to find all of the resources that we provide that will help you stay safe. To manage other risks unrelated to fraud, including limitations and deadlines, practice management and risks by area of practice, see risk management.

The Law Society and the Lawyers Indemnity Fund regularly communicates fraud alerts and risk management information to lawyers. Lawyers will also want to consider commercial liability insurance to protect them from fraud risks that are not covered under the Policy. Part A of the Policy provides coverage for lawyers who are innocent in fraudulent investment schemes, real estate value or identity fraud. Part C of the Policy provides some coverage for lawyers who are caught by a social engineering scam that results in a trust shortage. For more information, see Compulsory Policy Overview.
