Financial stability, planning and regulation – back to basics for law firms

Print This Post

22 November 2013


The economy, new market entrants and the demands of the SRA Handbook, leave law firms facing a number of regulatory, organisational and financial challenges. Law firm failures are increasing as the impact of these changes are felt right across the profession.

This seminar on 6 December, brought to you jointly by Weightmans LLP, a top 50 law firm with a no ‘one size fits all’ approach and Wesleyan Financial Planning, established in 1841, who provide specialist financial products and services to law firms, will explore the issues surrounding law firm financial stability, financial planning, corporate structure (including ABS) and regulatory compliance. We will discuss what the impact of recent changes has been, what lessons can be learned and how the future looks for the profession.

This seminar is designed to provide those in positions of responsibility (including COLPs and COFAs) within law firms with some food for thought, some practical advice and for them to leave with a better understanding of some of the risks, the pitfalls, how to avoid them and build a successful, compliant and thriving business. Please note that there is no cost to attend this event.

Woebots and robots

Nadia chatbot

The chances are that you may not be entirely sure what a bot or a chatbot is. So, the news that, “starting today, DoNotPay is opening up so that anyone can create legal bots for free (with no technical knowledge)” may be a bit opaque. But bots have their devotees. The picture is of Nadia, an Australian bot being developed to give information on disability benefits with the voice of Cate Blanchett. The editor of Chatbots Magazine (OK, no neutral source) is pretty clear about their future. He writes articles with titles like ‘How bots will completely kill websites and mobile apps’. Joshua Browder, the creator of the DoNotPay parking ticket challenger, is behind what he hopes will be this major expansion of legal bots.
