Legal EyeWhilst complaints are unfavourable for any business to receive, they form a natural part of working life.

As well as seeing them as a way to improve and grow, it’s also important to ensure that they’re recorded correctly in line with regulatory requirements.

Whilst it might seem time consuming, documenting undertakings and complaints in a central location is vital for firms. Not only does it improve management efficiency, but it can also protect firms against reputational damage by maintaining evidence and keeping partners and directors up to date.

Whether reportable or non-reportable, it’s important to document any complaints’ information and any action which is taken in response.

The same goes for matters which fall within the high-risk category. In order to demonstrate that you’ve taken the appropriate steps required, it’s important that you record these incidences in a central place.

But that’s easier said than done.

Though you probably know it’s important to keep registers up to date, you might not know the best way to go about it.

The Legal Eye Register Pack provides you with the documentation to keep on top of records and maintain registers in line with regulatory requirements.

As well as being presented in a clearly structured way, the documents provided can be tailored, ensuring that your firm’s recording methods comply with the most recent legislation.

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.
