There's a risk in practice - finding yourself targeted by 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 Insurance 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 tools or dupes of fraudster clients in fraudulent investment schemes or real estate value or identity frauds. Part C of the Policy provides some coverage for lawyers who are caught by a social engineering scam that results in a trust shortage.
