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.

Inbound marketing for law firms – For those about to flock

Chris Davidson Moore LT

Written in honour of Malcolm Young, recently deceased founding member of AC/DC, there are nine references to AC/DC songs throughout this article. We will send a £20 iTunes voucher to the first person who gets in touch to tell us what they are. The forces that are driving change in the legal profession are wide and varied. The ability of law firms and individual solicitors to respond positively and innovatively to these challenges will determine who survives and prospers. Competition for new business is fierce, a dog eat dog world, one might say. Which brings us to AC/CD. Not my favourite rock band, but an acronym for Attract, Convert, Close and Delight – the four pillars of inbound marketing.
