Risk Management and Compliance for Law Firms 2016 – 6-7 December

Monitoring emerging threats is a key priority for every firm in 2016. With many firms and practices falling prey to cybercrime in the past year, these challenges are a constant reminder of the risks that your firm can face in its everyday practice. Is the monitoring of this kind of threat a consistent priority for your board?

Legal regulation could face large-scale change in the next two years. After Britain’s decision to leave the EU in June, the regulatory environment and the conditions in which a firm trades are likely to be affected by the Brexit vote. How can your firm manage this change? Which areas are most likely to be affected? How can you manage your clients’ expectations and questions during a time of great change?

Risk Management and Compliance for Law Firms 2016 will help you answer these questions and tackle the latest regulatory compliance and risk challenges.

Day One of this conference highlights emerging risk for those responsible for managing strategic and operational risk, while Day Two enables those tasked with achieving compliance to stay abreast of regulation affecting their firm.

Risk and compliance professionals have relied on this conference for almost a decade to help them neutralise risk to their legal services business and grapple with a changing regulatory landscape.
