One Response to “Further reading”

  1. I have read that with the implementation of the LSA, this will place the UK in the vanguard to promote global change in the legal services sector through the introduction of alternative business structures (ABS).

    As we know each jurisdiction has its own regulators and operating requirements for its legal practitioners.

    What is the general view on this? Or does the prospect flatter to deceive?

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.
