Cyber Fraud and Breach of Trust Claim Won

 Earlier in the week one of the lawyers from our Buckinghamshire office was successful in recovering from a solicitors’ firm’s insurer the balance of over £170,000 which the solicitor had lost to a cyber fraudster. Interest was also recovered on the monies lost and the client’s legal costs were covered in full by the insurer. The claim was founded in the torts of negligence and breach of trust.
