We at Legal Eye pride ourselves in our personal approach to compliance and risk management. We work with a variety of practices, tailoring our advice to suit the needs of individual firms taking into account their size, location, client base, service areas and risk profile. Our friendly, experienced team will help you understand the regulations and adapt your processes and procedures.

We also have yearly packages to help spread the cost and enable you to keep documents, policies and procedures up to date.

As we work with so many firms we have the benefit of regular reviews and assessment reports from our client base undergoing Lexcel Assessments and investigations by the regulator. We use this knowledge to update all of the firms we are working with; so firms working with us benefit from our team experience and the experience of others.

Compliance covers a variety of rules, regulations and legislation and firms should consider whether they have adequate processes and procedures in place to cover all of the requirements. We offer a compliance review to help firms identify areas of non compliance and also to help put right those non compliances.

“I was put in touch with Legal Eye through my practice management system providers, and I must say the level of service, care and attention provided by them has proved to be first class. They have been a joy to work with and I would thoroughly recommend Legal Eye to those firms looking for assistance with compliance issues and optimising their performance. We have just achieved the Legal Eye Quality Standard which we are delighted about.”

Lawyers must now draw on the data and drive change

Chris Marston 2014

The results from this year’s legal services consumer tracker survey make for interesting reading. In its sixth year, the research finds that a firm’s reputation continues to grow in importance, holding its top slot as the number one factor influencing choice of lawyer, with price remaining a strong second, reflected in a shift towards higher numbers of fixed-fee transactions. Alongside, it reports that trust in lawyers has declined to 42%, from 47% in 2012. It’s useful information as far as it goes, but what is the sector going to do with it?
