mmadigital, the online marketing agency for the legal sector and Legal Eye, a leading provider of best practice, risk management and compliance services to the legal services market, have joined together to ensure legal sector websites are compliant with regulations over and above the traditional quality standards.

As experts in digital marketing, mmadigital with be helping review websites for firms who want to ensure their websites meet regulatory requirements. Once their websites are assessed and proved to be compliant, they may then also use this toward the requirements of gaining The Legal Eye Quality Standard, the first assessment scheme of its kind to pull together all the various regulations that law firms must abide by and assess them independently.

The Legal Eye team manages the assessment process through simple, clearly defined health checks, fully documented audit trails and file reviews, with mmadigital looking after the online elements needed to gain the award.

Jaunita Gobby, Director at Legal Eye, says: “Law firms must abide by a whole variety of legislation and regulatory requirements to ensure they are working in the best interests of their clients. Thankfully many do meet these requirements. However, with so many rules covering a multitude of their work, it can be hard to ensure all factors are complied with, so we’re offering to help do that for them.

“We’re really pleased that mmadigital are on board to share their digital expertise so that law firms know that their online presence is covered as part of the Legal Eye Quality Standard too.”

Dez Derry, CEO of mmadigital, adds: “With consumers increasingly using the internet to find legal services it’s imperative that law firms not only have a good website to attract new clients, but that their website is compliant with the rules set out by various regulators.

“Having worked with so many law firms we can easily assist Legal Eye in making sure applicants meet the high requirements set out by the Legal Eye Quality Standard so they can be sure they’re on the right side of the regulators.”

As well as fully documented paperwork to satisfy audit requirements, firms receive official certification and marketing materials. It can also act as a positive contributor to controlling PI premiums through visibly evident, robust and documented risk management processes.

The Legal Eye Quality Standard is also available to Licensed Conveyancers and providers of legal information services.
