Legal Futures readers have been offered a 20% early bird discount to Managing Partner’s two day “Risk Management for Law Firms” conference on 6-7 December in London. To claim your discount book before 14October 2011 quoting booking code ‘LF20’.

Risk professionals have had a difficult task dealing with the challenges of the new outcomes focused regulation which was introduced this year but the work does not stop there. There are still questions to be answered: How will OFR work in practice? What is still expected of them? Who will take on the role of COLP?

This two-day conference will not only allow you to hear from your peers about how they are dealing with the changes being made to the legal sector but you will also be able to enter into an open discussion with representatives from the SRA and Law Society.

Outcomes focused regulation has been a key focus within risk but this event will also cover the big issues facing risk professionals. How do risk teams identify and dealing with fraud and dishonesty within their own firm? How do you anticipate the risks to your firm over the coming year?

Eight reasons why you must attend the UK’s leading legal risk conference:

  • A first-hand account of how leading law firms including Taylor Wessing, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer and Allen & Overy have tackled the challenges in operating under the new outcomes-focused regulation
  • Clarity from the SRA, Law Society and Legal Ombudsman as they share their expectations for OFR, ABS and the claim trends for the coming year
  • Tools to benchmark your firm against leading law firms’ risk management strategies and ensure you stay out of trouble
  • An understanding of the key changes and trends in claims over the past year and how these will affect your professional indemnity insurance renewal
  • Insights into how other firms will tackle the impending nomination of the COLP
  • Better understanding of professional legal privilege
  • Learning opportunities to avoid the pointed end of regulation, with an overview of high-profile disciplinary matters and rogue partners
  • A forum to consider all risks relating to outsourcing

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.
