Following on from our successful COLP and COFA forums held earlier this year, Weightmans, in conjunction withHurst Accountants, will be hosting a breakfast workshop on the roles of COLPs and COFAs.

Now that nominations are in, we will provide you with practical solutions and tools together with working examples to help you:

  • Identify and assess the risks your practice faces
  • Monitor compliance
  • Decide what, if anything, you can delegate to others
  • Understand what a material breach might be and your reporting obligations.

This will also be your opportunity to share your experiences and concerns to date with other nominated COLPs and COFAs and is not to be missed!

The workshop will be hosted by Michelle Garlick, Partner and Head of Weightmans’ Compl-i service for law firms, and Helen Besant Roberts, Business Services Partner at Hurst and Co Accountants.

The seminar will be held at Weightmans office at 3 Piccadilly Place, Manchester, M1 3BN on 6 September.   Coffee and refreshments from 8.30am onwards for a 9.00am start.

If you would like to attend please contact Robyn Maddocks via to reserve a place and inform her of any dietary requirements.

Delivering a first-class service experience

I visit a lot of different businesses in the course of my job – both law firms and other types of organisations. This gives me a unique opportunity to compare how the legal sector is shaping up against the commercial world in how they welcome visitors to their business, and it’s fair to say that those that go the extra mile certainly stand out.
