Solicitors Regulation Authority: Legal Risk Management Software and Solicitors Regulation Authority
 
00:35
Because the new Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) regime comes into force in October 2011, risk management for legal services and law firms has never been so important. Nowhere is risk management more important than in the management of client work. That's why we have developed a state-of-the-art risk management system for legal services and law firms. The Solicitors Regulation Authority - SRA demands that firms demonstrate their systems for matter level risk assessment. More significantly the new COFA (Compliance Officer for Finance & Administration) must report failures of compliance to the Solicitors Regulation Authority or SRA. If a law firm does not have a robust system for matter level risk management it will be in breach of the new regulation. Our risk management system is available now on a low cost, no contract, pay-as-you-use basis. This system has been tried, tested and refined for over 5 years and focused to become more effective and to adapt to the changing risk and regulatory regime. In the case of our company, we converted a poor 'risk and professional indemnity claims' record into an excellent one, with a saving approaching £600,000 in PI premiums per year. So, what next?

Solicitors' Accounts Manual- 11th edition- Solicitors Regulation Authority
 
06:55
ITS YOUR MONEY- SO WHATS YOUR SOLICITOR ALLOWED TO DO WITH IT? An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers If you are a solicitor, you no doubt have a copy already of the Solicitors Accounts Manual -100 pages of accountancy detail for lawyers! This however, is the 11th edition for 2009 and, as a summary of the professional requirements in relation to the handling of client money, it incorporates a number of changes, including all those made to the rules since publication of the tenth edition, up to31 March 2009. Of particular interest is Part A which sets out clearly the principles on which the rules are based followed by interpretation, generally, of individual terms within the accountancy rules. First of all, a solicitor must comply with the requirements of the Solicitors Code of Conduct 2007 also published by the Law Society. Specifically, pertaining to the Accounts Rules, a solicitor must, amongst other things, •Keep other peoples money separate from money belonging to the solicitor or the practice •Use each clients money for that clients matters only •Establish and maintain proper accounting systems •Account for interest on other peoples money in accordance with the rules •Deliver annual accounts reports as required by the rules •and so on, including admonitions about keeping other peoples money safely in a bank or building society account identifiable as a client account. Intriguingly, with reference to accountants, the Preface points out that the Legal Services Act 2007 (The Act) has introduced a mandatory whistleblowing duty for reporting accountants, reflected in an amended rule 38. Previously this rule provided for the right of reporting accounts to whistleblow, but imposed no duty to do so. So is there a duty to whistleblow? Note- its now all one word. Think, if you will, of the implications and ramifications of that in the interesting times we live in. Members of the public as well as other practitioners within the legal profession will also find themselves enlightened by some precise definitions under the heading Interpretation of certain vague terms: without delay means, for example, in normal circumstances, either on the day of receipt or on the next working day. So now you know. We now seek a precise definition of what in due course means. But we digress. Suffice to say, the Solicitors Accounts Rules now reflect the introduction of LDPs and firm-based regulation and applies to the following: sole practitioners, partnerships, companies, LLPs, practices with non-solicitor lawyers and managers and practices with up to 25% of managers who are not legally qualified. In addition, the rules are applicable to individual managers and employees of those practices and to in-house lawyers. The Preface explains much about your money and what the solicitor can do with it, and the Law Society does just that with this regularly updated work.

Assessment Drives Learning: The Solicitors Qualifying Exam Eliminates U.K. Law School Requirement
 
34:41
The regulatory body that oversees the legal profession in England and Wales, the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), has enacted a major overhaul of legal training and solicitor licensure. This will take effect in 2020. On Lawyer 2 Lawyer, hosts Bob Ambrogi and Craig Williams join attorney Mark A. Cohen, CEO of Legal Mosaic and Julie Brannan, Director of Education and Training for the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), as they discuss how the U.K. is eliminating the requirement of attending law school in favor of a skills exam. They talk about that exam, its potential impact on law students and the legal community, and whether or not the United States will adopt a similar practice. Mark Cohen, the CEO of Legal Mosaic, is a Distinguished Lecturer in Law at Georgetown Law School and writes a weekly column on the global legal marketplace for Forbes. Mark recently wrote a piece for Forbes titled, “A British Reboot of Legal Education-- Law School Optional.” Julie Brannan is the director of education and training for the Solicitors Regulation Authority better known as the SRA out of the U.K. She joined the SRA in October 2013, and since then has been leading the Training for Tomorrow review of legal education and training. Special thanks to our sponsors, Clio and Litera.

Solicitors' Code of Conduct 2007 June 2009 edition
 
06:18
SERIOUS REQUIRED READING IF YOURE A SOLICITOR AND A GUIDE TO YOUR RIGHTS IF YOU ARENT An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers If you are a solicitor, the Solicitors Code of Conduct 2007 should be a permanently to hand on your nearest book shelf particularly in view of the volume of regulation now faced by solicitors and the de-regulation of CFAs. This, the 2009 edition is published almost 2 years after the 2007 edition. It reflects the accelerating pace of change in the legal services sector in the Age of Regulation. Core duties and rules and guidance, written in plain English, are logically laid out and of the highest standards we expect of the Law Societys excellent publications. In addition to the guidance notes in the Code, the Solicitors Regulation Authority publishes free standing guidance from time to time, alerting you to new issues of public interest. The www.sra.org.uk site lists details. Even if youre not a solicitor, youll find it useful to be aware of the standards of service and conduct you should expect from any solicitor you instruct. The sections on core duties (set out in Rule 1) and client relations are certainly pertinent. Note section 2.03 Information about the cost, for example: You must give your client the best information possible about the likely overall cost of a matter both at the outset and, when appropriate, as the matter progresses. And so forth. So there! Key changes in this edition reflect the Legal Services Act 2007 regarding firm based regulation and legal disciplinary practices. These apply to all managers and employees in firms. Rules that have been extensively amended include the following which are the linchpin of a modern practice: •Rule 12 Framework of practice •Rule 14 Recognised bodies (formerly incorporated practice) •Rule 29 Requirements of practice •Rule 23 Application of these rules Other important changes have been made to: Rule 5 (business management in England and Wales) and Rule 7 (publicity). As Peter Williamson of the Solicitors Regulation Authority points out, Professional ethics form the very bedrock of the delivery of legal services, adding that the core duties set out in rule 1 of the Code define the values to be displayed in everything lawyers and their colleagues do. Integrity and independence together with fairness and the values of equality and diversity must remain constants, whatever the structures in which we work. It is heartening to know that the SRA is highly principled and upholds such high standards for the protection of the public. It is to be expected that all solicitors in England and Wales will be aware of the content of this Code and will at all times endeavour to comply with it- thats why it is serious required reading for all on modern conduct in the Age of Regulation.

MAINSTREAM NEWS MEDIA EXTRACTS: The Carroll Foundation Trust and parallel Gerald 6th Duke of Sutherland Trust multi-billion dollar corporate identity theft liquidation bank fraud bribery case which is encircling the former Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales Lord Harry Woolf of Barnes has disclosed that two High Court Judges respectively the recently retired Sir David Eady and the Lady Justice Sharp are understood to be both seriously implicated in this case of international importance. Sources have confirmed that the explosive FBI Scotland Yard “cross-border” criminal “standard of proof” prosecution files contain a compelling evidential paper trail which surrounds the Sir David Eady and the Lady Justice Sharp “close links” with the “targeted” Withersworldwide and Goodman Derrick law firms trans-national crime syndicate who are known to have executed this massive bank fraud heist operation which streches the globe. Scotland Yard leaked sources have disclosed that the former HM Treasury Permanent Secretaries respectively Sir Peter Middleton along with Lord Terence Burns are confronting major ongoing allegations of money laundering offshore tax fraud and bribery on an industrial scale. This source also said that the offences were committed during their tenure as the most senior civil servants at HM Treasury. It has emerged that Sir Peter Middleton later became Chairman of Barclays Bank whilst Lord Terence Burns assumed the role as Chairman of the Ofcom news media broadcasting authority which enabled them “in concert” to effectively impulse the extended money laundering operation spanning three continents. It is public knowledge that RBS Coutts & Co Barclays International Lloyds Private Banking and HSBC Private Banking “targeted” the Carroll Global Corporation Trust banking arrangements which has prompted well seasoned political observers in Westminster to remark that the current Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales Lord Ian Burnett of Maldon Essex will be a pivotal force behind the much needed conclusion to this sorry affair. The Carroll Foundation Trust files are held within a complete lockdown at the FBI Washington DC field office and the Metropolitan Police Scotland Yard London under the supervision of the Commissioner Cressida Dick QPM who is known to have an intimate knowledge of this major public interest case.

The Solicitor's Handbook 2012

BOOK REVIEW THE SOLICITOR'S HANDBOOK 2012 By Andrew Hopper QC and Gregory Treverton-Jones QC Law Society Publishing ISBN: 978 1 90769 829 3 www.lawsociety.org.uk A VITAL PURCHASE FOR ALL SOLICITORS: THIS LATEST EDITION FROM THE LAW SOCIETY An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers If you find yourself somewhat bemused by the 'regulatory maze that governs the conduct of solicitors' -- as the Law Society quite rightly calls it, then acquiring 'The Solicitors Handbook 2012' from Law Society Publishing should really be your first priority, especially in view of all the changes taking place. 'We have had to grapple with an entirely new Code of Conduct,' say the authors, (and) 'a new suite of Rules forming the SRA (Solicitors Regulation Authority) Handbook and a wholly new way of delivering legal services through alternative business structures (ABSs).' This new edition for 2012 has therefore been 'entirely re-cast'. As Hopper and Treverton-Jones also point out, it separates regulation from discipline and adds a new section on ABSs. The authors, however, urge solicitors not to throw away their old editions of the Solicitor's Handbook, because, with the numerous changes that have taken place in recent years, they still need to know what rule was in place when. This 2012 edition of the Handbook is nonetheless a must-have purchase which takes into account all the important changes including, for example, the matter of outcomes-focused regulation... the advent of alternative business structures... and the new powers of the SRA and the Solicitors Disciplinary tribunal. There's a full review of the new Code and the SRA Handbook and an examination of obligation of all firms to appoint a compliance officer for legal practice (COLP) and a compliance officer for finance and administration (COFA). As you would expect, the commentary is authoritative, expert and refreshingly reader-friendly. There are practical suggestions as to the best way to achieve compliance within the new regulatory and disciplinary landscape. The seven new chapters in this edition include chapters on the principles and Code of Conduct, the regulation of ABSs and more besides. Besides the 18 appendices, there are extensive tables of cases, statutes, statutory instruments. There's also a table of European legislation and other materials and a table of other enactments. All this, and the substantial range of detail covered, makes this handbook an invaluable resource for every solicitor. The law is stated as at 31 October 2011.

Solicitors a new qualification process
 
01:52
Claire Leslie Senior Careers Consultant for Warwick Law School. Transcript: "The Solicitors profession is subject to regulation to ensure that solicitors are able to provide a good service to the public and do not behave dishonestly. The overarching regulator for the Bar and Solicitors professions is the Legal Services Board and the regulator for solicitors is the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority. The Solicitors’ Regulation Authority has announced proposals to replace the Qualifying Law Degree as the first stage of professional qualification with two requirements (i) an Honours degree in any subject; and (ii) successful completion of the Solicitors’ Qualifying Examination (SQE), stage 1. If these proposals are approved, the SQE stage 1 will be introduced at a date to be determined, which is likely to be either September 2019 or September 2020. The concept of a qualifying law degree will disappear if these proposals are taken forward and law students will need to sit and pas SQE stage 1 just as will those without a law degree. The subjects to be covered in SQE part 1 are as follows: • Principles of professional Conduct, Public and Administrative law and the Legal Systems of England and Wales • Dispute Resolution in Contract and Tort • Property law and practice • Commercial and Corporate Law and practice • Wills and the Administration of Estates and Trusts • Criminal Law and Practice • Legal Research and Writing" Law Blog: https://lawblog.warwick.ac.uk/ Legal Careers Advice: https://www.youtube.com/user/careersandskills/playlists?view=50&sort=dd&shelf_id=37 Filmed & edited by Susan Vollmer
The Solicitor's Handbook 2017

BOOK REVIEW THE SOLICITOR’S HANDBOOK 2017 By Andrew Hopper QC and Gregory Treverton-Jones QC ISBN: 978 1 78446 055 6 THE LAW SOCIETY www.lawsociety.org.uk NO SOLICITOR SHOULD BE WITHOUT THIS FORMIDABLE ANNUAL HANDBOOK – NOW A NEW EDITION FROM THE LAW SOCIETY An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers As publishers of ‘The Solicitor’s Handbook 2017’, the Law Society refers to ‘the regulatory maze that governs the conduct of solicitors’, adding in effect that the said burden of regulation can be eased considerably by judicious use of – and reference to – this annual Handbook. As their profession is so heavily regulated, (within a constantly changing regulatory landscape), this new edition should be regarded by solicitors as virtually a compulsory purchase. Since the previous edition came out, a considerable number of regulatory changes have taken place. This new edition contains explanatory coverage of all of them, with accompanying commentary citing practical problems by way of illustration. The wealth of new material in this completely updated and very handy paperback volume includes – and this is only a partial list -- changes to the separate business rule, together with key changes to consumer credit regulation and the significance of these changes for firms. Additionally, there is commentary on the overhaul of the Accounts Rules and the likely move by the SRA from entity regulation to regulation of individuals. Also note the important new section on cyber fraud. A distinguishing and certainly reassuring characteristic of the book is its clarity. Yes, the efficient plain English, plain speaking approach permeates the Handbook, much to the relief, no doubt of the busy solicitor who has precious little time to untangle convoluted sentences. Whether you work for -- or run-- a small law firm, a large law firm, or an in-house practice, you can depend on this Handbook to help you navigate the ‘regulatory maze’ successfully, provided you read it carefully of course. It has been logically designed to help you ensure compliance by avoiding a host of potential pitfalls and any number of innocent mistakes. To this end, you might be especially interested, for example, in the sections on the regulation of ABSs (Alternative Business Structures) and on fraud and money laundering. Also useful are the twenty appendices and the extensive tables of cases, statutes, statutory instruments and other enactments, plus a table of European legislation and other international materials. No solicitor should be without this Handbook. The law is stated as at 30 June 2016.

Setting Up and Managing a Legal Practice by Martin Smith (3rd edition by The Law Society)
 
07:08
An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE of Richmond Green Chambers. "MANAGING THE FIRM" Martin Smith has produced a thoroughly expanded and welcome new edition of this much needed guide to the creation and running of a legal practice which will be of great help to all the support staff who can make or break the success of any legal business. The third edition has been completely updated relying on the authors extensive administrative experience. Smith has provided here a practical, straightforward and well structured guide on how to set up and run your legal practice including all the common sense points which we all really know about but sometimes forget or put to one side! The book remains a much loved and invaluable best-seller from the Law Society stable, and relies on the tried and tested methods of its author and it will be of great use to all solicitors seeking to establish and manage their legal practice in England and Wales. The book has two parts: Part I deals with setting up your practice, and, in 12 chapters, covers issues such as deciding the legal constitution of your practice, to finance and advertising. Part II is entitled keeping going: how to manage the small practice with 8 chapters which investigates the ongoing management of your practice including a specific chapter on marketing and how to manage the growth of your firm. There are 15 appendices which deal with the nitty-gritty of the profession and they are a most welcome reference point of the work. For the third edition, these appendices are now on the CD-ROM including specimen documents for easy and fast customization, and that should save us both time and money. The work takes account of: •the impact of the Solicitors Code of Conduct 2007; •the introduction of the Solicitors Regulation Authority; •the implications of the Legal Services Act 2007; •the newly revised Lexcel practice management standard; and •contemporary legal and regulatory developments. Apparently, the Law Society had strong reservations about the success of this book in 1995 when advice from outside reviewers of the project was that trying to produce a single book covering the myriad of tasks that need to be completed in order to set up a new practice was well nigh impossible because too much ground needed to be covered. WATER UNDER THE BRIDGE So, Martin Smith has taken away the cartoons which appeared in earlier editions and he describes the more serious environment we face as new practices are set up and struggle to cope, with the parting hope that the book will prove as useful as ever to those bold enough to start a new practice. It is and it does- those constructive observations from 1995 are now water under the bridge! ISBN: 978-1-85328-659-9

COLPs Toolkit

BOOK REVIEW COLPs TOOLKIT Law Society's Risk and Compliance Service By Michelle Garlick Law Society Publishing ISBN: 978 1 907698 8 46 0 www.lawsociety.org.uk BECAUSE EVERY LAW FIRM MUST SHORTLY HAVE AN AUTHORISED COMPLIANCE OFFICER FOR LEGAL PRACTICE (COLP).... YOU NEED THIS NEW TOOLKIT FROM THE LAW SOCIETY, WITH ACCOMPANYING CD-ROM An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers Yes, that's right. From January 2013, every law firm must have an authorised compliance officer for legal practice (COLP), following the impact of the Bribery Act 2010 and the Legal Services Act 2007. If you're a practitioner, whether a sole practitioner, or in a firm, we can think of no reason more compelling than acquiring this extremely useful book, one of the Law Society's highly regarded and eminently practical 'toolkits' (part of the Law Society's risk and compliance service). In force as of 1 July 2011, the Bribery Act 2010 requires that -- in the words of the Law Society -- commercial organisations of any size must 'review their procedures and look to their lawyers for the development of policies and training to establish anti-corruption safeguards,' one of which is of course, the appointment of a compliance officer. The Law Society has therefore produced a series of extremely informative and helpful new 'toolkits', each designed to help practitioners cope with the new regulatory environment. Produced in handy paperback format with accompanying CD, each 'toolkit' contains supremely clear and practical advice that has emerged following this significant new legislation. If you or your clients are or might be directly affected by the new legislation, (or possibly indirectly) you might decide to acquire all three, namely the 'Anti-Bribery Toolkit'... 'the COFAs Toolkit'... and the 'COLPs Toolkit'. For purposes of this review, we are focusing on Michelle Garlick's 'COLPs Toolkit', which contains draft policies and procedural checklists, from governance policies and draft letters, to recording and nomination forms and a compliance checklist. The contents cover the rules themselves and their application and further chapters deal with compliance and reporting to the SRA, the Solicitors Regulation Authority. The CD-ROM provides useful appendices, including relevant policies, draft communications and forms which you can immediately use, providing they're adapted to specific needs. Distinguished for convenience, clarity and practical approach, this toolkit and its two companion volumes have all been designed for the benefit of busy practitioners, particularly sole practitioners. Published in the summer of 2012, this indispensable toolkit is available now from Law Society Publishing.

BOOK REVIEW ALTERNATIVE BUSINESS STRUCTURES The Regulation of Law Firms By Iain Miller and Mark Pardoe Law Society Publishing Legal Handbooks ISBN: 978 1 90769 815 6 www.lawsociety.org THE ABS- A GENERATIONAL CHANGE An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers Law Society Publishing have introduced a new title in their Legal Handbooks series entitled 'Alternative Business Structures', which has been described as 'the biggest change to the regulation of legal services for a generation'. And it is! This title is another practical and accessible legal text designed to guide practitioners -- both barristers and solicitors --for the first time through the types of service which solicitors and other legal professionals can be provided with by specific organisations that are not, themselves, owned by lawyers. The reforms affect all law firms as the entire regulatory framework is being altered to accommodate these changes- alas, it doesn't appear, however, that 'regulation' (beloved of some sorts of person) has in any way diminished... so no change there then for us! Iain Miller and Mark Pardoe have reviewed the regulatory framework covering 3 areas: the requirements for authorization; ongoing monitoring and compliance; and enforcement. The aim is to provide an introductory guide to how the new organisations will be regulated by the largest legal services regulator, the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA). It's important to note that it'll be possible for an ABS to be licensed by the Council for Licensed Conveyancers. And, both the Bar Standards Board and the Intellectual Property Regulation Board have announced that they will apply to regulate ABSs, thus further widening choice. There are 6 chapters and 5 Appendices in the book but do first read the introductory chapter in detail because it sets out what Clementi achieved, and where we are now towards the middle of 2012 with some useful history as the debate on ABSs has unfolded together with the ground breaking Legal Services Act 2007 and its aftermath. As the authors identify, Parliament decided not to wipe the slate clean in 2007 so ABSs have been grafted on to the existing legal framework. Iain Miller says in the Preface, "in many places, such as in relation to appeal mechanisms, the tension between the old and the new is clear and still needs to be resolved." Miller concludes that. probably in time, the ownership flexibility of the ABS will prove to be attractive to established law firms so that there will be little practical difference between the ABS regulatory regime and the regime that exists for established law firms... but we shall have to see! As a final comment, do read the Law Society Practice Notes in Appendix E which, although quite technical, are of great assistance to solicitors, listing potential risks and benefits and the roles of new compliance officers which Law Society Publishing are in the process of producing practical toolkit advice shortly to reflect the generational change.

BOOK REVIEW COLPs TOOLKIT 2nd edition Includes CD By Michelle Garlick ISBN: 978 1 78446 045 7 THE LAW SOCIETY Law Society’s Risk and Compliance Service www.lawsociety.org.uk ANOTHER EXCELLENT LAW SOCIETY TOOLKIT IN THE RISK & COMPLIANCE SERIES An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers Michelle Garlick and Law Society Publications continue to provide us with excellent administrative support in the increasingly complex regulatory area that lawyers face today - we do rely on the advice given to make our professional lives so much easier. This need has arisen because of the introduction of this ‘system’ or regime of compliance officers for legal practice (COLPs) scheme. The Solicitors Regulatory Authority has, at last, simplified some of the procedures for the approval, declaration and notification of changes to the role of a COLP and we have been given a first-class piece of guidance here with this new toolkit updated for a second edition. Law Society publications are by far the best on the market for these professional guides for law firms and every lawyer should know of their existence and have a copy in their own law library for reference. These changes to the COLP regime, as well as additional new templates, are included in this updated second edition. It’s an invaluable resource for both new and existing COLPs. Like others in the series, this essential toolkit contains draft policies, procedural checklists and other instruments to assist practitioners in demonstrating due diligence and remaining fully compliant with the SRA Handbook. An absolute must for the practising solicitor in today’s regulatory frenzy which we hope will die down a bit now the Brexiteers have got what they wanted! This fully updated edition also has a new chapter entitled 'Additional COLP tools', which we found extremely helpful as well. Pearl Moses, who is Head of Risk and Compliance at the Law Society, writes in the Foreword that “our hope is that these toolkits rapidly become ‘must-have’ elements in every practitioner’s compliance armoury” and she recommends them “without reservation” as we do. There are also several new and revised templates, including the following list set out on the back cover: a revised risk register; a COLP nomination form; a checklist for new COLPs; a routine compliance activities checklist; a key staff monthly feedback report; a checklist of action in a suspected breach; data protection and loss policies; and audit and file review forms. As with all Law Society publications, this new edition will be of great help to all those members of staff responsible for a firm's regulatory compliance in order that they can ensure that the correct processes are in place. As the author, Michelle Garlick, says, “every firm is different and one size does not fit all, but it is hoped that the toolkit will help you and your firm”, and it does just that! Garlick, is a partner at Weightmans where she heads a team advising law firms on regulatory compliance, claims, complaints handling, disciplinary representation and risk management issues. She comes to her task with relish and, as to be expected, a wonderful expertise which cannot be matched elsewhere so we are all in good hands with the advice we receive here. As Michelle says “Good luck in your new role!” The publication is based on the law and SRA regulatory requirements as at May 2016.

MAINSTREAM NEWS MEDIA EXTRACTS: The Carroll Foundation Trust and parallel Gerald 6th Duke of Sutherland Trust multi-billion dollar corporate identity theft liquidation bank fraud bribery case which is encircling the former Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales Lord Harry Woolf of Barnes has disclosed that two High Court Judges respectively the recently retired Sir David Eady and the Lady Justice Sharp are understood to be both seriously implicated in this case of international importance. Sources have confirmed that the explosive FBI Scotland Yard “cross-border” criminal “standard of proof” prosecution files contain a compelling evidential paper trail which surrounds the Sir David Eady and the Lady Justice Sharp “close links” with the “targeted” Withersworldwide and Goodman Derrick law firms trans-national crime syndicate who are known to have executed this massive bank fraud heist operation which streches the globe. Scotland Yard leaked sources have disclosed that the former HM Treasury Permanent Secretaries respectively Sir Peter Middleton along with Lord Terence Burns are confronting major ongoing allegations of money laundering offshore tax fraud and bribery on an industrial scale. This source also said that the offences were committed during their tenure as the most senior civil servants at HM Treasury. It has emerged that Sir Peter Middleton later became Chairman of Barclays Bank whilst Lord Terence Burns assumed the role as Chairman of the Ofcom news media broadcasting authority which enabled them “in concert” to effectively impulse the extended money laundering operation spanning three continents. It is public knowledge that RBS Coutts & Co Barclays International Lloyds Private Banking and HSBC Private Banking “targeted” the Carroll Global Corporation Trust banking arrangements which has prompted well seasoned political observers in Westminster to remark that the current Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales Lord Ian Burnett of Maldon Essex will be a pivotal force behind the much needed conclusion to this sorry affair. The Carroll Foundation Trust files are held within a complete lockdown at the FBI Washington DC field office and the Metropolitan Police Scotland Yard London under the supervision of the Commissioner Cressida Dick QPM who is known to have an intimate knowledge of this major public interest case.

SRA Code Of Conduct - Chapter 14 - Practice Overseas
 
02:06
Practice Overseas If you are an individual or body practicing overseas then the Code does not apply to you, but you must comply with the SRA Overseas Rules. This chapter defines the bodies that are bound by these Overseas Rules and then goes on to state which parts of the Code apply to these rules. In our video we explore what this means for those who are practising outside of England and Wales, whether permanently or temporarily. We also look at what kind of additional outcomes you must achieve if you are practising overseas, such as having to properly account to your clients for any financial benefit you receive as a result of your instructions, unless it is the prevailing custom of your local jurisdiction to deal with financial benefits in a different way.

Professional Negligence Claims
 
01:24
If you have suffered a financial loss as a result of the negligence of a solicitor or barrister, Pryers solicitors can help you to obtain compensation. Contact us today on 01904 556 600 or https://www.pryers.co.uk/professional-negligence/ for further information. When you instruct a solicitor to handle your personal injury or medical negligence claim you, quite rightly, expect to receive a high standard of client care and expertise. The very last thing you expect when you seek help from a professional is for them to be negligent. Unfortunately solicitors do make mistakes and when this affects you personally, it is entirely appropriate for you to consider whether you might have a case for professional negligence. Here at Pryers Solicitors we handle many different types of professional negligence claims. In England & Wales, solicitors must have an insurance policy that protects clients in the event that mistakes are made. You may be entitled to claim against the solicitor if they have made mistakes in handling your case. A solicitor may have missed a crucial deadline, or under-valued your claim. They may have failed to include certain types of claim you could have received an award for, or not explored every avenue to achieve the most satisfactory outcome. If you feel that you received bad legal advice that led to a financial loss or a poor settlement, you might have a claim for professional negligence. To learn more about making a negligence claim - Call Pryers Solicitors on 01904 556 600 and speak to us in complete confidence.

BOOK REVIEW SRA HANDBOOK October 2011 edition Solicitors Regulatory Authority ISBN: 978-1-907698-04-0 Law Society Publishing www.lawsociety.org.uk ALL NEW REGULATORY ASPECTS COVERED BY THE REVISED REGIME An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers This new SRA Handbook is simply something you must have as a practising solicitor now the revised regime is in place. It's a guidance book but much more covering all aspects of what we currently do within the profession in one volume. Do read the introduction in detail as it covers the fundamental structure in the following sections: SRA Principles; SRA Code of Conduct; Accounts; Authorisation and Practising Requirements; Client Protection; Discipline and Costs Recovery; Specialist Services; and, finally, a most useful Glossary. The handbook ends on a positive note when it says that the regulatory objectives can only be achieved if we (the SRA) and our regulated community (us) work together in a spirit of mutual trust for the benefit of clients and the ultimate public interest. We feel all practitioners agree with these sentiments and we welcome this constructive new approach to regulation. Do read the two other recent Law Society Publishing books which compliment this work: 'Outcome- Focused Regulation' and the new edition of the 'Solicitors' Accounts Manual'.

SRA Handbook October 2013 edition

BOOK REVIEW SRA HANDBOOK Solicitors Regulation Authority October 2013 Edition The Law Society 978 1 907698 03 3 www.lawsociety.org.uk THE MOST UP-TO-DATE GUIDE TO THE RULES GOVERNING THE CONDUCT OF SOLICITORS --NOW IN THE LATEST EDITION An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers If you're a solicitor practising in England and Wales, you'll need to update yourself on any recent revisions, or additions to the rules governing the conduct, responsibilities and obligations of practising solicitors: in which case, you'll be glad to know that the latest edition from the Law Society of the SRA Handbook is out now. This new October 2013 edition contains a number of revisions you do need to know about. A recent development for example, is the fact that regulated individuals will no longer be obliged to refer clients needing investment advice to an independent financial adviser. In other developments, the Code of Conduct now imposes a prohibition on practitioners receiving or paying 'prohibited referral fees'. Also, the SRA Overseas Rules 2013 governing overseas practice have been introduced -- and the SRA Quality Assurance Scheme for Advocates has now come into effect from 3 September 2013. As the introduction to this volume makes clear, the focus for any regulatory scheme is the interests of the general public and specifically in this case, users of legal services. The standards and requirements expected of solicitors are therefore set out in this Handbook for the benefit of the public generally and for clients in particular, whether services are provided in -house or through private practice. The Handbook's general approach therefore, has two elements: firm-based requirements and individual requirements. The assurance is given that regulatory powers are exercised in a proportionate manner, with the emphasis on risk and outcomes for clients. An especially noteworthy resource contained in this logically structured Handbook (which comes in handy paperback format) is its impressive sixty page glossary at the back with its detailed approach to the definition of terms, from, for example, 'accreditation', to, (intriguingly), the multiple meanings, connotations and definitions of the word 'you'. Once again, Law Society Publishing has produced a work of reference for solicitors which can undoubtedly be called essential and therefore an essential purchase for the professional practitioner's library, especially when you recall that the updated Code and the Accounts Rules are all in one place. Also handy and particularly time saving are the regular updates to the Handbook available online. Thank you very much for keeping us up-to-date with the regular practice changes!

BOOK REVIEW SOLICITORS’ ACCOUNTS MANUAL 13th edition Solicitors Regulatory Authority THE LAW SOCIETY Edited by Angela Doran ISBN: 978 1 78446 015 0 www.lawsociety.org.uk THIS MANUAL REMAINS AN ESSENTIAL PURCHASE FOR EVERY PRACTICE AND IS COMPLETELY UP TO DATE AS AT 1 APRIL 2015 An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers This important formal book, the “Solicitors’ Accounts Manual” remains the foremost statement from the Solicitors Regulatory Authority (SRA) on solicitors’ accounting and is an absolute requirement for every firms’ library. The Manual is now in its 13th edition for 2015 following the 12th edition which appeared in 2011 and has been completely revised. It contains a current summary of the professional requirements in relation to the handling of client money which is probably one of the most crucial areas of operational activity. Practitioners will find the contents completely up-to-date as at 1st April 2015. It is a new edition which includes completely revised and detailed Appendices, the new SRA Warning Notice on the improper use of client accounts, recent SRA guidance on withdrawing residual client balances and case studies on the role of the COFA, as well as all the key changes up to and including Version 14 of the SRA Handbook. There are, of course, many other areas covered which make up the Rules and they reflect the recent changes which have taken place within the legal profession These Law Society publications, including the Manuals, remain an absolutely fundamental part of your firm’s law library. They are the formal statements for the profession and apart from their affordability and ease of use for all lawyers they give the weight one needs professionally to do our jobs, not just properly, but very well indeed. Angela Doran and the staff at the Law Society are to be congratulated for the assistance given by editing all the new material for this edition. It is a tough job covering areas which are not as easy to understand as some may think so the Manual remains a fundamental and essential purchase. To the outsider many of these rules remain ridiculously complex and very difficult to understand but they have to be followed so we are very grateful for what has been produced here by the governing body as an authoritative statement. Practitioners are made aware that one area which will be of assistance is knowledge that these Rules now apply in a modified form to registered European lawyers practising from an office in England and Wales “of an exempt European practice in circumstances in which client money is held or received”. And perhaps another example of how much the global community is impacting on our activities in this country! Full details of all the changes are well set out in the new edition. The Preface and publication date is given as June 2015.

COFAs Toolkit

BOOK REVIEW COFAs TOOLKIT Law Society's Risk and Compliance Service By Jeremy Black and Florence Perret du Cray Law Society Publishing ISBN: 978 1 907 698 47 7 www.lawsociety.org.uk BECAUSE EVERY LAW FIRM MUST SHORTLY HAVE A COMPLIANCE OFFICER FOR FINANCE AND ADMINISTRATION (COFA)....YOU NEED THIS NEW TOOLKIT FROM THE LAW SOCIETY, WITH ACCOMPANYING CD-ROM An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers Yes, the time is fast approaching. From January 2013, not only must every law firm have an authorised compliance officer for legal practice (COLP), but additionally, a compliance officer for finance and administration (COFA). If you're a practitioner, particularly in a firm, you will certainly have compelling reasons to acquire this extremely useful book, one of the Law Society's highly regarded and eminently practical 'toolkits' (part of the Law Society's risk and compliance service). Each of these helpful 'toolkits', is designed to help practitioners cope with the new regulatory environment introduced under the OFR (outcomes-focused regulation) implemented by the SRA, which insists that all law firms large or small must assign top priority to risk management in line with the demands of the Legal Services Act 2007. Produced in handy paperback format with accompanying CD, each 'toolkit' contains clear and practical advice that has emerged following this legislation. As all firms will be directly affected, (or possibly indirectly) you might decide to acquire all three toolkits, namely the 'Anti-Bribery Toolkit'... 'the COFAs Toolkit'... and the 'COLPs Toolkit' -- all in handy, paperback format. For purposes of this review, we are focusing here on 'COFAs Toolkit'. Whether you are appointed as the firm's COFA, or perhaps the partner in charge of overseeing COFA compliance activities in line with general risk management procedures, you'll find this COFAs Toolkit' invaluable in helping you implement and supervise systems for complying with the SRA's (Solicitors Regulation Authority) Accounts Rules. Note that, in being charged with this responsibility, the COFA is regarded as having a more focused role than a COLP and is expected to record all compliance failures and report them back to the SRA as soon as practicable. This toolkit is therefore designed to provide the practical and clearly structured advice and assistance needed for the COFA role. As the expert authors point out, (both are from Deloittes with specialist law-based experience) the book highlights the main regulatory requirements relevant to COFAs. It elaborates on their responsibilities, including reporting requirements, and offers the relevant guidance as well as the relevant range of practical tools, i.e. documents and forms. Further guidance, together with template documents, can be easily accessed from the CD-ROM and adapted to specific requirements. Like its companion volumes, this book -- now available from The Law Society -- is distinguished for its clarity ready adaptability to the needs of busy practitioners. The publication date is stated as at April 2012.

About NBM Solicitors Nigel Broadhead & Co was established in January 1985 by founder Nigel Broadhead. A few years later Nigel was joined by Stephen Mynard and the company became Nigel Broadhead Mynard & Co. Now it is better known by its trading name of NBM Solicitors.

But what happens when something goes wrong and you receive a poor standard of care from your dentist? If you suffer injury or harm as a result of negligence arising from poor care and treatment from your dentist, a consultant or dental technician, it may be possible to claim compensation. Our specialist dental negligence solicitors handle many different types of claim involving procedures such as inadequate root canal therapy, failed implants, extracting the wrong tooth and periodontal disease. In order to make a claim you must show that there was a breach of duty on the part of the dentist. A breach of duty is simply where the standard of care you received fell below what would be expected from a reasonably competent and skilled specialist. If this breach caused you harm then subject to medical proof, you may be able to claim compensation. To learn more about making a dental negligence claim - Call Pryers Solicitors on 01904 556 600 and speak to us in complete confidence.

Supermarkets and law firms
 
01:23
Banks and supermarkets are to be able to sell consumer legal services in England and Wales for the first time following a change in law. The government says the new Legal Services Act will offer more choice and better value for the public. It says it also means law firms will benefit from investment and allow them to explore new markets. But critics have said it would undermine the quality and independence of advice. The government says the change would encourage economic growth in the industry and raise the profile of the UK as a first-class legal services market. Justice Minister Jonathan Djanogly said it was a "landmark day" for the legal industry. "Our legal services are already rated among the best in the world, used by millions of people around the globe as well as in the UK, and these changes will set them up to move to new heights. They will enable firms to set up multi-disciplinary practices and provide opportunities for growth," he said. "Potential customers will find legal services become more accessible, more efficient and more competitive." Legislation and regulation has restricted the management, ownership and financing of firms providing legal services for hundreds of years. Under new trading bodies, known as Alternative Business Structures (ABS), lawyers will be able to work in mixed-practices offering financial, legal and other advice, or be based at different kinds of businesses. The first of the new legal businesses will be conveyancer-led, covering services such as property law and probate. Solicitors will not be able to participate in the new arrangements until licensing by the Solicitors Regulation Authority takes place. Currently, solicitors chambers are owned by the lawyers themselves under partnerships. The changes could also see barristers, who are currently self-employed, eventually form partnerships themselves, or take on individual roles within the new legal businesses, the Bar Standards Board says. The Council for Licensed Conveyancers will license the first tranch of externally-owned and managed law firms. Its chief executive, Victor Olowe, said: "We have over 20 years' experience in regulating the licensed conveyancing profession and we will be extending the same rigorous but proportionate approach to the regulation of ABS. "We believe that ABS is good news for consumers. Opening up the market will offer people a greater choice of legal service provider, while at the same time our new risk-based and outcomes-focussed approach to regulation will help ensure high standards of service, and will maximise consumer protection." Critics have dubbed the act, first drafted under the previous Labour government, "Tesco Law". The move came under attack from some lawyers, including a coalition of about 100 firms, when it was first announced in 2009. The QualitySolicitors.Com grouping said it could wipe out good quality, local legal advice. Meanwhile, Clive Sutton, of the Solicitors Sole Practitioners Group, urged the government to reconsider the "untried and untested innovation" which he said had only previously been adopted by two states in Australia. He said: "The government seem unconcerned that the introduction of Alternative Business Structures puts at risk the independence of legal advice, via the profit interests of commercial owners." Despite the title Tesco Law, the supermarket has said it has "no current plans to offer legal services". But the Co-operative was among the first stores to say it was interested in offering a legal business. Similar legislation was passed in Scotland in October 2010 when MSPs at Holyrood backed its Legal Services Bill.

The Solicitor's Handbook 2009 by Andrew Hopper QC and Gregory Treverton-Jones QC
 
07:10
MAINTAINING THE HIGHEST STANDARDS WITH ALL THE NECESSARY FORMAL DETAILS An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers Theres no more authoritative guide to the rules and regulations governing solicitors in England and Wales than the second edition of the Solicitors Handbook for 2009 published by their governing body, The Law Society, now in 19 chapters and 25 appendices. If you are a solicitor, The Solicitors Handbook 2009 should certainly now be a permanent fixture on your shelf or desk, placed conveniently at your right hand especially in view of the volume of regulation now faced by solicitors. For last years edition we described it as a handy statement of the current rules without going online. We remain in an age of handbooks as the legal profession continues to be regulation mad. However, this particular edition is much needed because it draws together all of the most important rules and regulations that affect solicitors in one volume. The 19 chapters (one extra from last year) are conveniently split into four areas: the overview; the rules; fraud and money laundering; and the regulatory and disciplinary system in practice. The heavy formal detail is found in the, now 25, appendices, although its fair to say that the book needs to be used a bit first in order to familiarize yourself where things are. The authors, a solicitor advocate and barrister respectively, are both QCs and specialists in the field of professional regulation and discipline. They have updated the second edition to take account of all recent developments in the regulatory landscape. Expert commentary is provided on the practical realities of the regulatory and disciplinary environment in which you as a solicitor will operate, backed by illuminating discussion of the relevant decided cases. As pointed out in the preface to this edition, there are two major changes effected by the Legal Services Act of 2007 that are not yet in place, namely alternative business structures (true external ownership of law firms) and the complaints and redress system to be established by the ombudsmen (sic) scheme of the Office for Legal Complaints, which will replace the current Legal Complaints Service. Nonetheless, relevant to the 2009 edition of the Handbook is the fact that the Legal Services Act 2007 is now in force even if, in the words of the authors, in some respects the practical effects [of changes engendered by the new law] have not yet been tested. The Handbook contains useful and detailed supporting materials including the text of the latest versions of : The Solicitors Code of Conduct 2007) and the Solicitors Accounts Rule 1998, together with the Accountants Report Form revised in May 2009. Youll also find: •SRA Recognised Bodies Regulations 2009 (31 March 2009) •Solicitors Financial Services (Scope) Rules 2001(revised 31 March 2009) •SRA Warning Cards (May 2009) •Law Societys Anti-Money Laundering Practice Note •Legal Services Act 2007 (extracts) So, in all, this is an authoritative publication designed to assist you in maintaining professional standards and identifying and dealing with regulatory and disciplinary issues before they escalate into the terrifying realms of serious and costly error for your practice Updated with the practitioners perspective always in mind, it gives expert commentary on the practical reality of the regulatory and disciplinary environment in which solicitors operate with the new provisions. And it discusses all of the relevant decided cases in the field and will also be of us to barristers who conduct public access work. Like the continuing confidence of the Master of the Rolls in his Foreword which is repeated for this edition, Hopper & Treverton-Jones remain successful in their aim of helping to avoid innocent mistakes which can lead to serious consequences. Although, as Sir Anthony said last year, the internet provides information which is fully up to date at any given moment, he recognises that this handbook gives basic principles which can be readily consulted without going online. It still does, and it maintains the highest standards of the formal detail it gives practising solicitors with the new conduct regime.

LSE Events | Competition and the Regulation of the Legal Services Market

The Competition and Markets Authority, prompted by concerns raised by interested parties that the legal services sector might not be working as well as it should, launched a study into the legal services market in January 2016 focusing on individual consumers’ and small businesses' experience of purchasing legal services in England and Wales. In its interim report, the CMA found some important problems in the functioning of the market to the detriment of consumers. The final report, which is due by the 12 January 2017 statutory deadline, will explore in full the hurdles to competition in the legal services market and make proposals for the appropriate remedies as well as recommendations for the regulatory framework of the legal services market. This will be the first public discussion of the report, which is likely to make a significant impact on a market with an annual turnover of £11-12 billion. Robert Bourns is President of the Law Society of England and Wales. Niamh Dunne is Assistant Professor at LSE Law. Rachel Merelie is Senior Director at the Competition and Markets Authority. Paul Philip is Chief Executive of the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority. Julia Black is Interim Director of LSE and Professor of Law at LSE. LSE Law (@lselaw) is an integral part of the School's mission, plays a major role in policy debates & in the education of lawyers and law teachers from around the world.
Medical Negligence During Surgery

If you feel you have a potential claim for medical negligence, our professional team of medical negligence solicitors are available to assist you further – please call us on 01904 556 600 or click here https://www.pryers.co.uk/medical-negligence/hospital-and-surgery-claims/ or here https://www.pryers.co.uk/medical-negligence/ If you or a loved one have suffered injury following a surgical procedure, you may be able to make a claim for medical negligence. All forms of surgery carry a degree of risk and that is something we accept when agreeing to undergo a procedure. It is important that the doctor treating you discusses the likelihood of any complications with you before the surgery takes place. However, if the outcome is worse than expected due to a poor standard of care or a mistake on the part of the surgical or aftercare team, there may well be a case for negligence. Many surgeons work under immense pressure with a list of patients they are expected to operate on every day. Negligence can arise from using faulty equipment, or leaving behind dressings or other implements. Lack of training or inexperience can also lead to surgery going wrong. Here at Pryers Solicitors we have helped many patients recover much needed compensation after suffering harm due to poor treatment during or after surgery.

Delayed Diagnosis Claims - Medical Negligence

Here at Pryers Solicitors we specialise in medical misdiagnosis claims call us on 01904 556 600 or click here https://www.pryers.co.uk/medical-negligence/diagnosis-errors/ or here https://www.pryers.co.uk/medical-negligence/ If you have suffered injury or harm following a delayed or incorrect diagnosis, you may be able to claim compensation for medical negligence. Our hospitals and GP surgeries are busier than ever and with increased pressure and stress levels there is a greater risk of mistakes being made by over stretched healthcare professionals. This can lead to problems in correctly diagnosing injuries and illnesses. A late diagnosis can drastically reduce the prospects of a recovery and when faced with a serious illness such as cancer, the consequences of any delay can be very serious indeed. A misdiagnosis can also have life-threatening consequences as the opportunity to treat, medicate or undergo surgery may be missed. Here at Pryers Solicitors we specialise in medical misdiagnosis claims and can advise you on your legal rights if you or a relative have suffered injury as a result of poor medical advice.
