LexisNexis has announced two additions to its Cordery Compliance Service: Cordery Consulting Services and Compliance Healthcheck.

The additions are set against a backdrop of increased regulation in the legal services delivery, including new outcomes-focused regulation and requirements for appointed COLPs and COFAs.

The Compliance Healthcheck is a simple and effective way for solicitors to find out whether they need to do anything more to comply with regulatory rules. By filling in a smart questionnaire and returning it to Cordery Compliance, solicitors will receive a written report within 14 days to help them understand their firm’s compliance strengths and weaknesses and exactly what they need to do to be compliant.

Robert Sanderson, LexisNexis UK compliance spokesperson, said: “Cordery Consulting Service and Compliance Healthcheck offer a cost-effective solution for solicitors to check that they are on the right side of the rules. The launch of these two new services is part of the LexisNexis suite of compliance services. We know that not all solicitors have prepared for the new rules, and we have responded by bringing these new services to the legal market.”

Cordery Consulting Services provide face to face expert support to solicitors across England and Wales to help them comply with the SRA Handbook.

How best to achieve independent regulation under the Legal Services Act?

Craig Wakeford LSB

Independent regulation gives confidence to consumers, providers, investors and society as a whole that legal services work in the public interest and support the rule of law. The Legal Services Act 2007 does not require all approved regulators to be structurally separate from representative bodies. Instead, the Legal Services Board is required by the Act to produce internal governance rules (IGR) which apply the principle of regulatory independence in legal service regulation. We are currently running a consultation on the IGR which continues until 9 February.
