Improper and unauthorised use of Cains name

We are aware that from time to time:

  • Fake websites are created that purport to be our own website.
  • Communications are sent to various people and organisations purporting to be from Cains and/or lawyers who work at Cains. These unsolicited communications sometimes offer the opportunity to receive work, or money, from Cains’ clients.

There will undoubtedly be other ways in which Cains’ name will be used illegally by the individuals behind such activities, to further their own improper conduct, and presumably with a view to making  financial gain at the expense of their victims.

Cains, and its lawyers, have no involvement with any such activities. This ( is the only website that Cains maintains.

If you wish to check whether a communication that you have purportedly received from Cains is genuine, please contact us via the following link:
