Ethics for Law Firms: A refresher for practitioners & law firm employees

Ethical practice is central to the work of all lawyers. Without a high standard of integrity our clients and the wider public will lose trust in the profession.

In this webinar, Mena Ruparel & Richard Burnham, authors of How to be an Ethical Solicitor, will remind listeners of the current regulatory framework, look at the common ethical issues facing lawyers and the people they work with on a daily basis and give hints on how to deal with them using real life examples from the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal including:

  • The pitfalls of social media
  • How to communicate with Litigants in person/McKenzie friends
  • Taking advantage of the other side
  • Threatening costs orders
  • Signing documents for clients
  • Interacting with clients

Ethics training is now an important part of the SRA regulatory regime for everyone working in a regulated firm, including non-lawyers, so attendance is a quick, lively means to fulfill that key requirement and keep your staff up to speed with the latest thinking.

When? 1-2pm, Friday 9th February

Where? Any computer with broadband and sound How much? Free to listen in on the day

Don’t get caught out by the traditional equity partnership model

David Beech 2

It’s no secret that these are challenging times for some of the UK law sector as it tries to keep up with emerging digital trends and increasing demand from clients. But there is buoyancy in the market and opportunities for those businesses that are agile and brave enough to challenge the status quo – the traditional equity partnership model. We’ve seen it all too often where partners have been duped into putting their assets against a failing business that is riddled with debt. We’ve even received calls from partners to discuss bankruptcy and that the possibility of moving house is no longer possible, due to the LLP they joined going into liquidation.
