Legal Futures Associates SIFA and 360 Legal Group will be holding a series of roadshows around the UK during January and February 2012.

The roadshows will look at the importance of management systems and controls as not only the key to compliance with Outcomes Focused Regulation but also deliving competitive advantage in the post-Legal Services Act environment. Quality accreditations are not the whole answer and COLP and COFA bear only part of the responsibility. Firms also need to set about differentiating their client proposition. Sessions will discuss:

  • The opportunities and implications for your firm of the arrival of private equity in the legal marketplace
  • The practicalities of Outcomes Focused Regulation and the role of COLP and COFA
  • Business models for the future and the role of the trusted adviser

The roadshows are accredited for 2 hours of Law Society CPD and cost £50 (incl VAT) per delegate. For full details of the programme, venue and dates download the brochure:  SIFA roadshows. To book visit www.sifa-centre.info

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.
