In January 2023, Verify 365 made a big impact on the Birmingham legal community by launching its new updated Enterprise version in the city. The platform was received with open arms by multiple law firms who saw the benefits of a comprehensive and streamlined onboarding process for their clients. Top law firms in the region such as Dalsun Solicitors, Blackfriars Law, and HSC Solicitors were among the first to adopt Verify 365. Firms praised the platform’s comprehensive approach to AML/KYC and client onboarding and with the new Enterprise version providing solicitors with AML, eSignatures and Property Searches all in one platform. Let’s dive into the success of Verify 365’s launch in Birmingham and hear from some of the law firms that have signed up to the platform.
Efficiently take on new business while managing regulatory, financial, and reputational risks
Dalsun Solicitors, a multi-discipline law firm specialising in Family Law and Immigration Law, was among the first to sign up. The firm recently set up its property department and was searching for a onboarding solution that offered the best-in-class due diligence to combat the higher risks associated with the property and conveyancing sector. One of the core challenges for the firm was taking instruction from outside of the Midlands region. The firm was refusing dozens of clients with legal enquiries every day because the firm has stringent policies and procedures in place that meant it couldn’t take on clients outside of close proximity simply due to the risk posed with verifying clients remotely. The practice would require all clients to be verified in person which meant they were losing on potential clients and revenue.
AML and KYC regulatory obligations require law firms to have a risk based approach however this does not mean law firms should not be able to work with clients who are not from the local area. Dalsun Solicitors required a onboarding solution that meant they were able to complete AML checks swiftly and providing them with a clear risk dashboard to monitor data and compliance for their clients.
“The comprehensiveness of Verify 365’s ID software was a key factor in our decision to sign up,” said Daljeet Nijran, Managing Director of Dalsun Solicitors. “We were also impressed with the way the solution approaches the conveyancing process, offering eSignatures and Searches all in one platform.”
With full use of the Verify 365 solution, the firm will be able to complete its entire client onboarding journey through the platform, providing a cleaner risk dashboard and a secure, streamlined way of converting enquires into a client.
Helping deliver an exceptional client experience
Blackfriars Law and HSC Solicitors, two leading property firms in the Birmingham area, also recently signed up to the platform. These firms are experts in Property Law and have a reputation for providing high-quality services to their clients.
“Both HSC Solicitors and Blackfriars Law are law firms that have an exceptional reputation for delivering consumer and commercial legal services in the region – their client feedback and reviews speak for themselves, so we’re extremely proud to be the chosen supplier for helping deliver those legal services,” said Azeem Rashid, Director of Verify 365. “We are pleased with the process so far and are very excited about the future. “There are some very big announcements coming soon, and we are confident that the success of our platform in Birmingham will continue due to the hard work of our team.”

The platform eliminates fraud and helps law firms thrive by providing a comprehensive digital client onboarding process. The platform’s comprehensiveness and legal sector specific technology have made it the go-to solution for law firms in the area.
