Financial stability, planning and regulation – back to basics for law firms

Print This Post

22 November 2013


The economy, new market entrants and the demands of the SRA Handbook, leave law firms facing a number of regulatory, organisational and financial challenges. Law firm failures are increasing as the impact of these changes are felt right across the profession.

This seminar on 6 December, brought to you jointly by Weightmans LLP, a top 50 law firm with a no ‘one size fits all’ approach and Wesleyan Financial Planning, established in 1841, who provide specialist financial products and services to law firms, will explore the issues surrounding law firm financial stability, financial planning, corporate structure (including ABS) and regulatory compliance. We will discuss what the impact of recent changes has been, what lessons can be learned and how the future looks for the profession.

This seminar is designed to provide those in positions of responsibility (including COLPs and COFAs) within law firms with some food for thought, some practical advice and for them to leave with a better understanding of some of the risks, the pitfalls, how to avoid them and build a successful, compliant and thriving business. Please note that there is no cost to attend this event.

Small claims 2013 v 2018: What has changed?

Brett Dixon APIL

Successive governments have considered increasing the small claims limit for personal injury claims, at the behest of the insurance industry lobby, from £1,000 to £5,000. But the lower limit remains unchanged because, so far, evidence and reasoning have prevailed. The last time the government tried to implement an increase was in 2013 when it concluded that it would keep the issue under consideration for implementation “when appropriate”. Nothing has happened to suppose a small claims limit of £5,000 is any more “appropriate” in 2018 than it was in 2013.
