Introducing Thirdfort

Using anti-fraud technology, we help lawyers and other regulated sectors verify clients quickly and safely. So they can focus on their business and their clients can enjoy those big life moments.

The Thirdfort philosophy

Security first

We set the standards when it comes to security. We understand our responsibilities so we don’t cut any corners. And our clients' security underpins everything we do.

Go above & beyond

We’re passionate about going the extra mile for our users, clients and partners.

In it together

We operate best as a team. We have each others' backs and are enjoying the journey!

Operate openly

We operate best when everyone can see the full picture. We’re constantly looking to increase visibility across our growing team.

Challenge anything

Better decisions come from constructive debate, regardless of seniority or experience. Our open culture empowers autonomy and accountability.

Own it

We take initiative and own the outcome, whether that’s working with clients, users, partners or as a team.
