Cyber Fraud

Please be aware that fraudsters are targeting the clients of law firms.

By hacking into clients’ computers or IT systems, fraudsters can gain access to confidential e-mail correspondence and trick clients into sending funds to a fake bank account.

If you receive an e-mail that purports to come from Barr Ellison informing you of a change to our bank account details, this will be an attempt to defraud you. Our bank accounts details will not change. Any indication to the contrary should be ignored.

You are strongly advised to telephone Barr Ellison to check that our bank account details are correct before you transfer any money.

Barr Ellison will not accept responsibility if you send money to the wrong bank account.
