[LONDON] [26 OCT]- Verify 365, a leading provider of innovative legal technology solutions, is thrilled to announce an exclusive partnership with Will Aid, a renowned UK charity initiative. This collaboration aims to empower solicitors and will providers by providing them with state-of-the-art Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Client Onboarding solutions at an exclusive rate.
Will Aid, a special partnership between the legal profession and nine of the UK’s beloved charities, has been helping people secure their futures by offering assistance in creating legally valid Wills. Every November, solicitors participating in Will Aid waive their fees for writing basic Wills and encourage clients to make a donation to support charitable causes. To date, Will Aid has raised over £24 million and assisted more than 340,000 individuals in obtaining the peace of mind that comes with professionally drafted Wills.
A poll, commissioned by Will Aid and involving around 2,200 people across the country, showed that only 29% had an up-to-date Will – with the majority admitting they haven’t got anything in place at all.
Peter de Vena Franks, Campaign Director for Will Aid said: “Whether you’re a new firm or a long-established business, taking part in Will Aid boosts staff morale and gives your colleagues a common goal to work towards, knowing their efforts are making a real difference for the will recipients and the wider community.
“Taking part in Will Aid is a simple and easy way to provide a valuable local service – helping people who don’t have Wills to finally put their affairs in order.
“Whilst Will Aid month is November, every Will Aid client is able to engage a solicitor for additional work which can be charged over and above the cost of a basic Will. Many Will Aid clients build a relationship with their solicitor and return to the firm for other legal work or recommend them to family and friends.”
When you take part in Will Aid, solicitors can control the number of clients that they take on. They can also choose to be on the Remote List and reach clients all over the country. Being part of the Remote List gives prospective Will makers the chance to find and contact firms directly, no matter where in the UK they are based.
In this innovative collaboration, Verify 365 will extend its cutting-edge AML and Client Onboarding technology to members of Will Aid. Legal professionals associated with Will Aid will gain access to Verify 365’s comprehensive suite of tools, including DynamicID® for biometric ID checks, Global PEPs & Sanctions screening with ongoing monitoring, Address Verification checks, Source of Funds analysis using Open Banking statements, and more. These solutions are meticulously designed to streamline client onboarding processes, enhance compliance, and reduce operational complexities for law firms.
Azeem Rashid, Director at Verify 365, expressed enthusiasm for this partnership: “At Verify 365, we are committed to driving innovation within the legal sector. Our collaboration with Will Aid is a testament to our dedication to empowering legal professionals with the latest technology. By offering our AML and Client Onboarding solutions to Will Aid members at an exclusive rate, we aim to support their practices while contributing to charitable causes.”
Mev Dzihic, Director at Verify 365, stated, “We are delighted to partner with Verify 365. This collaboration aligns perfectly with our mission to assist legal professionals in providing valuable services to their clients while making a positive impact on society. Together, we can further strengthen the legal community’s commitment to both professional excellence and charitable giving.”
