Legal Services

Employees working in legal services are required to be reliable, trustworthy and honest; with the qualifications to offer your clients the best legal advice. Experian provides a range of background checks for the legal services sector, helping to ensure that your staff comply with industry regulations and can be relied upon as a member of your organisation.

Law firms are often built on their reputation alone and have a duty of trust. Our range of legal services background checks not only save you time, but help you to maintain compliance with stringent industry guidelines and cut reputational risk by screening all your personnel, including: admin professionals, barristers, legal secretaries, partners, qualified solicitors and lawyers, support teams, and trainees.
