Our services support firms to comply with the SRA Code of Conduct and other regulatory objectives.
Performing the role of a COLP or COFA of a law firm need not be daunting or onerous. By outsourcing to Legal Compliance Consultants, firms can ensure they are ‘Keeping Compliance in Check’.
Legal Compliance Consultants have supported firms in making an application to achieve or maintain the Law Society’s Quality Service Standards such as Lexcel or CQS, as well as the Legal Aid Agency's SQM Standard.
Legal Compliance Consultants can support firms by providing in-house training to all staff to meet any learning and development needs. Legal Compliance Consultants are pleased to be able to offer a range of courses.
Legal Compliance Consultants can assist firms by implementing a system for file reviews and conduct onsite independent file review and compliance audits, including AML audits.
The SRA Code of Conduct requires firms to deal with the SRA in an open, timely and co-operative manner. We advise firms that are subject to an investigation and liaise with the SRA on the firm’s behalf.
Legal Compliance Consultants have a 100% success rate assisting Solicitors, Barristers and other Non-Lawyer Investors in making applications to the SRA for authorisation to practice.
This ranges from an annual Compliance Retainer Service, ad hoc instructions to deliver training, preparing a comprehensive Lexcel compliant Office Procedures Manual or simply an updated policy and procedure to comply with any new regulations.
Our Principle Consultant has a background of working for the Law Society, investigating issues of poor service and misconduct for over seven years and then providing compliance advice and assistance direct to the Legal Profession since 2011. She is also a Fellow of the Institute of Paralegals. Law firms can be confident in receiving expert compliance advice and practical assistance from highly experienced Legal Compliance Consultants.
