15 September 2017


LegalEyeLegal Eye are set to prepare firms for one of the biggest legislative changes to date while in attendance at the largest event on the conveyancing calendar, this month. 

With a basic aim to increase security on personal data, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is set to come into effect next year. 

Whilst its main focus will be on introducing new rights for citizens, it’s businesses that need to prepare for the GDPR ahead of its implementation. 

Holding large amounts of data, law firms are set to be impacted in a big way, with regulatory bodies urging firms to ensure their processes comply with the new Regulation.  

However, with reports showing that most businesses are unprepared for the GDPR, it seems that the warnings are being taken lightly. This could present severe problems for firms, especially given the severity of consequences for those who fail to adhere to the new rules.  

As experts in managing risk and compliance, Legal Eye are pleased to be delivering an expert talk on the GDPR at this year’s Law Firm Services (LFS) Conference.  

As well as considering the impact of the changes and how they will affect the legal profession, the talk will also focus on how your firm can prepare for the GDPR’s introduction next year. 

Recognised as one of the key topics on the upcoming legal calendar, the in-depth talk will be delivered by Legal Eye’s Managing Director, Paul Saunders for one of the breakout sessions sponsored by Lawyer Checker. With a focus on evolving risks, Lawyer Checker will be hosting talks throughout the day on a range of subjects, informing professionals about how to effectively prevent and avoid them.  

The LFS Conference is due to take place on the 20th September at the Vox Centre, Resorts World, Birmingham.

Investment in IT is necessary for forward-thinking law firms looking to succeed in today’s market. However, the value of IT is often under-appreciated and seen as just another overhead by senior management. It’s therefore important to understand how to write a convincing business case that helps decision makers understand why IT investments are necessary and the potential impact on the firm’s ability to compete.
