Law Management Section - Annual Conference at Chancery Lane
cpm21 Senior Associate Consultant Ian Hopkins attended the recent Law Management Section Annual Conference at Chancery Lane, mixing with law firm leaders from law firms across England and Wales.
Delegates heard from an array of speakers including the Law Society President Stephanie Boyce about regulatory changes and competitive pressures facing law firms.
Reflecting on the compliance themes raised at the conference Ian Hopkins said
“Law firms need to review both their firm wide and matter risk assessments regularly, monitor results and ensure all staff are trained and understand the firm’s risk management procedures. There is no doubt that anti money laundering is currently the SRA’s main priority. Law firms must take this on board, treat AML seriously and make AML their firm’s number 1 priority.”
