We’re aware of a potential scam where an individual claiming to be from the Law Society of Scotland has called law firms asking their staff to contact our chief executive on a mobile phone number given.

The mobile number given was not connected to anyone at the Society. In any event, we would not contact law firms on behalf of our chief executive in this way.

If you receive a call from anyone claiming to be from the Law Society of Scotland, and which seems suspicious, you can contact us directly to verify whether the call was genuine.
