Cybercrime Warning

Here at Phillips we take cybersecurity very seriously and were one of the first law firm’s in Hampshire to be awarded Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation.

Cybercrime fraud is a real and increasing threat, particularly with the risk of criminals intercepting emails and fraudulently changing legitimate bank account details with the objective of stealing your money.  Please be vigilant and ensure caution at all times when responding to any requests for your bank details.

Phillips Solicitors bank account details will not change during the course of a transaction.  We will not accept responsibility if you transfer money to an incorrect bank account. 

Speak to your Solicitor before transferring any money. If you receive an email or any other method of contact from us requesting or changing bank details, please contact your Solicitor immediately to clarify. Be aware that a phishing email (an email not from the legitimate source) may contain fraudulent contact details, please identify our contact details via other means.

Cyber Essentials Plus is an advanced level certification, verified by an independent accredited assessor, building upon the foundations laid by the basic Cyber Essentials certification.
