Many if not most law firms are faced with a challenging operating environment. Many firms are dealing with these challenges and managing the consequent financial risks effectively. Some are not. This seminar focuses on how law firms can interpret the warning signs in practice and constructively engage with their members, stakeholders and regulator to tackle financial risks.

This one-hour hot topic organised by St John’s Chambers, in association with the Bristol Law Society, is aimed at members/partners, and those with management responsibility in law firms.

We are delighted to have IPA President Charles Turner of FRP Advisory LLP and Mike Haley Director of Supervision at the SRA to contribute to the discussion, along with partnership law specialist Martha Maher of St Johns Chambers. There will be an opportunity at the end for a question and answer session with the speakers, followed by drinks.
