14 March 2014


The Compl-i team is delighted to invite you to the first in a series of breakfast seminars to be held at our London office on 9 April, focusing on topical aspects of regulatory risk and compliance for the legal profession.

We are pleased to confirm that Marcia Boys, a Regulatory Manager within the Supervision Directorate of the SRA, will be the guest speaker at this inaugural seminar, providing an overview of the SRA’s approach to supervision, including:

  • Compliance with the regulatory objectives;
  • The regulator’s perception of your key risks;
  • What constitutes a material breach; and
  • How the SRA measures your regulatory performance.

In addition, delegates will hear from our specialists in the field of regulatory compliance and will be given the opportunity to share opinions, ideas and experiences.

The seminar is aimed at those in key positions of responsibility (including COLPs and COFAs) within law firms.

There is no charge for the seminar, however places will be restricted to facilitate discussion.

To reserve your space please contact robyn.maddocks@weightmans.com or click here.

Registration will be 8.15am for 8.30am start and the discussions are expected to last for approximately 1-1.5 hours. CPD points will be available for this event.

We look forward to seeing you there!

The skills shortage in law firms is the biggest threat to handling cybercrime

CLC Roundtable discussion at Malmaison Hotel, Charterhouse Square

The skills shortage in our businesses is the biggest threat to our industry when looking at cybercrime. Cybercriminals are not just after money but are looking for sensitive information too, so the legal services sector is an obvious target. In the last year we have had reports of around £7m of client money being lost to such crime. This is not an IT issue and it should not be left to the IT teams to sort out. It is a high-level responsibility and a board-level issue that must be taken seriously. We suspect that we will look back on 2016 and ask why we didn’t respond quicker.
