25 March 2013


For the third consecutive year, runners from Solicitors Own Software Ltd. (SOS) have taken part in the Bath Half marathon to support the company’s chosen charity, the Prince’s Trust. Team SOS have now raised £4,200 for the Trust, a ‘youth charity that helps change young lives’.

In March 2013, Team SOS joined over 11,000 runners who took part in the 21km race, won by the Ethiopian Tewodros Shiferaw in 1 hour 3 minutes and 26 seconds.

Client Account Manager, Douglas Convery (placed 2727), who has completed the Bath Half four times, and achieved a personal best time of 1 hour 45 minutes and 41 seconds comments: “Every year I swear I won’t do it again but then I find myself being lured back by the challenge! If you’re keen to do a half marathon, Bath is a fast, flat, scenic course with lots of support on the way around.”

David McNamara, Managing Director of SOS adds: “This activity helps us to embody one of our corporate vales of being a supportive organisation. Including what our runners achieved in the previous two years, we are delighted that we’ve been able to collectively donate nearly £4,200 to such a worthwhile cause.”

Scripting consultant, Adam Jobling, also took part as did Richard Handy, Project Manager. In total, ten employees from SOS have run the Bath Half for the Prince’s Trust since 2010.

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.
