Williams: We wholly believe that that compliance belongs at the heart of every law firm’s strategy for success

Business consultancy firm 360 Legal Group has announced that a new compliance proposition will be launched at its annual conference later this week.  The new offering includes ongoing COLP and COFA support, guidance on attaining and maintaining accreditations, applications to ABS and regular file reviews.

Viv Williams, 360 Legal Group, commented:

“We are thrilled to offer this complete compliance support service to our members, as we wholly believe that that compliance belongs at the heart of every law firm’s strategy for success.  SRA regulations are rapidly changing the way solicitors are regulated and, whilst the principles of this regulation are founded in good business practice, the reality for many firms is that remaining compliant is a costly endeavour; both financially and in terms of  the time taken to implement and maintain changing regulatory requirements.

“We believe that this new proposition will help us encourage our members to embrace a culture of compliance whilst also saving them time and money.  This is another example of the way in which we work to keep the firms who use our services successful and profitable.”

The Group has employed two dedicated compliance consultants to support delivery of the new proposition; Gemma Garen joins from a background of more than a decade of designing and implementing compliance systems in law firms, whilst Eric Fletcher has over 25 years experience as a fraud specialist working for the Government and regulators.

The conference, which will take place in Warwickshire on the 2nd and 3rd of October, will be the Group’s largest event to date with more than 180 legal services specialists anticipated to attend.

Know your client checks – A lesson from BHS

Paul-Bennett for Legal Futures

As you will be aware, it is a legal requirement for advisory firms to carry out ‘know your client’ checks. The purpose of doing so is to confirm your client’s identity and to seek to provide protection in respect of anti-money laundering (AML) and terrorist financing laws. The BHS experience before the House of Commons’ work and pensions committee and business, innovation and skills committee shows that firms need to think beyond AML obligations.
