Cyber attacks

The legal sector is at significant risk of cybercrime, cyber attacks and scams and the number of attacks is on the increase, including the use of fake websites, sometimes to just cause confusion but more often to extract money from law firms’ clients.

At Harbottle & Lewis we take these risks very seriously and continuously monitor for such activity and respond quickly to minimise exposure or risk to our clients. If you do however, receive an email purporting to be from someone at Harbottle & Lewis which seeks to direct payment to a different account then it is unlikely to be genuine. Please do not reply and let your contact at the firm know immediately.

Harbottle & Lewis has also been certified with a cyber essentials certificate, which you can see here.
