24th March – Bristol 16:00-18.00
This event will offer a summary of key changes which took effect when the new Standards and Regulations went live on 25th November 2019 as well as further discussion. Topics concerning the Standards and Regulations will include:
- Freelance solicitors and solicitors working in unregulated entities. Risks associated with these roles, or risks in acting on the other side to either.
- Potential confusion of the public with the new arrangements
- Price transparency and how easy or not it has been to comply.
- Any concerns about shorter less prescriptive rules in the new STARS.
The second half of the event will focus on ethical behaviour within firms and what firms can do to improve behaviour by staff and limit the risk of reputational damage. This will also be opened to the floor for further discussion.
Speakers: David Gilmore – Owner of DG Legal
Helen Carr – Expert Consultant
