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.

New right to paid leave for bereaved parents: A welcome move

Kimberley Manning DAS

This year, like many in recent years, has seen some key changes within the employment law field, with the government, trade unions and lobbyists remaining endlessly engaged in seeking to impose their interpretation of fair balance between employers and their respective workforces. Although consensus on that equilibrium can never really be achieved, sometimes there are pieces of legislative movement which are difficult to argue with regardless of your perspective: This is one of those. Published on 13 October 2017, the Parental Bereavement (Pay and Leave) Bill would provide for the first time a legal right to parents who are employed and have suffered the death of a child, a minimum of two weeks’ leave in which to grieve.
