The huge changes in the regulation of the provision of legal services brought about by the Legal Services Act 2007 and the introduction of the new Code of Conduct mean firms' arrangements for effective risk management are brought into sharper focus. There are now clear responsibilities for risk and compliance defined within the remit of the newly appointed compliance officers (COLP and COFA), and firms' risk management policies and processes will come under close scrutiny by both the SRA and insurers. With the SRA 'risk-assessing' firms, it is essential that firms understand and manage their own risks.
This masterclass is designed to explore risk and compliance within the new regulatory regime, with a particular focus on the development of a comprehensive compliance plan, tailored to the needs of your firm. You will be provided with the knowledge and methodology to enable you to effectively manage key risk areas within your own firm.
