In this National Conveyancing Week 2024 podcast special, we sat down with Rob Hosier, Executive Director at inCase (and ‘recovering conveyancer’) to hear how conveyancers are fairing, what conveyancing practices are doing well, the realities of tech adoption, and whether there’s more to be done to support this pressured area of legal services.

Rob (full profile below) is a conveyancing industry champion and has been busy speaking at the many national conferences and events in the first quarter of 2024; catching up with conveyancing teams large and small across England and Wales as a result. We asked him to share this helicopter insight, and the concerns, challenges and achievements of conveyancers in our latest podcast to benefit the Legal News Wales community.

In this episode of the Legal Sector Resilience Podcast, our Editor, Emma Waddingham, asked Rob:

  • about the state of play for conveyancers right now
  • how the smaller practices are faring
  • if we’re in a tipping point with technology use in conveyancing and what firms are using
  • how to make the most of the current and soon-to-launch technology solutions
  • what to ask suppliers and how to get the most out of relationships
  • what conveyancing firms and teams can do now to help their business, their clients, and the wider industry
  • what conveyancers can do to get their voice heard

With over 19 years’ experience in legal services including conveyancing firms, Rob’s passion for the industry then led him to look at ways of improving the way we provide conveyancing services generally. He developed a keen understanding of technology and process management and has spent the latter part of his career marrying the two together.
