Law firms and their clients are increasingly becoming the target of hacking attempts. In Queensland, there have been instances of law firms and clients being hacked, resulting in money being misappropriated.

In light of this, please do not act on any communication (from us or otherwise) that asks you to transfer or deposit more than $10,000.00, without telephoning (on a known or separately verified number) the apparent sender of that communication to confirm the authenticity of the communication. You may wish to also consider checking for amounts less than this on a case by case basis. This measure is intended to prevent fraud.

Should you have any concerns, please contact us at Hillhouse Legal Partners on 07 3220 1144.
