Legal Compliance Consultants helped us to obtain authorisation to practice as an Alternative Business Structure and following which, we continued utilising their COLP/COFA support on a monthly retainer basis. Leila assisted us in preparing our Business Plan, obtained competitive quotes for PI insurance, completed the SRA application and liaised with the SRA in obtaining our authorisation. Our previous firm was OISC regulated and one of the Directors is a Practising Barrister, Leila helped us understand the rules and requirements of the SRA and implemented the same within our new firm such as by preparing our Office Manual and delivering in house training on Risk Management. Leila made the process of opening and setting up a new law firm seamless and would definitely recommend Legal Compliance Consultants.
- Issan Ghazni, Director
We have outsourced our compliance function to Legal Compliance Consultants and their service has been invaluable to our firm, having first assisted us in obtaining authorisation to practice as a new firm from the SRA. Leila offers a personal touch when it comes to compliance, offering advice and assistance whenever the firm requires it. Leila keeps us updated on our compliance obligations and ensures that we remain compliant at all times.
- Parveen Attri, Director,
Having worked with Leila for a number of years, we have only good things to say about the service we have received. We are very impressed with Leila’s knowledge base and depth of understanding when advising on compliance matters. We would highly recommend Leila to any legal practice and are of the firm view that every practice should engage Leila’s services to ensure safe navigation through the compliance maze of the SRA.

LCC delivered the much required AML training to all members of my firm. They made a boring subject as interesting as possible.
- Jonathan Browne. Managing Partner
My firm needed an up to date Office Manual and LCC were able to provide us with a comprehensive Office Manual which was tailored to my firm’s requirement. With the recent AML regulations, I was also able to utilise their service again to provide me with an updated AML procedure which included a firm wide risk assessment and individual risk assessment templates. Their support has been invaluable to my firm.
- Kuddus Ali, Director
LCC delivered in house training on the SRA Accounts Rules and the forthcoming changes to the rules. Whilst the rules were quite complex to understand, LCC were able to explain the rules clearly and concisely using example case studies. We have also used LCC to provide us with a comprehensive Office Manual following a compliance audit to assist us to work towards the Law Society’s Lexcel standard.
- Raja Khan, Director
LCC helped my firm successfully achieve the Law Society’s CQS accreditation. Their support and guidance helped us through the application process and meet the requirements.
