Ensuring Security

We’ve taken security seriously so you can rely on the work you do on Consensus.


Secure, encrypted communication

You should have trust in the tools you use to conduct legal work. Every connection to our platform is secured by 256-bit, industry standard SSL encryption – protecting information as it’s sent to us and when we send it back.

Need-to-know basis

We won’t reveal details of your legal issue to just anyone: we’ll only show your job to verified, practising lawyers who actively work in the area in which you need help. In addition, we require all our lawyers to perform a conflict check before we give them the details of your situation.

Always private messaging

Discuss confidential matters in confidence. Chatting with your lawyer and sending documents is always one-on-one and visible to you and your selected lawyer only.

Pay securely

If you make a payment on Consensus, you’re backed by our payments partner, Stripe. Stripe is certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1 – the highest and most stringent payments processor certification available. We take payment security seriously too: your payment information is always collected directly from you by Stripe and your details never pass through our servers.
