Regulatory

Entity regulation is a key component of the regulatory framework and with the launch of the SRA Standards and Regulations in 2019, it is clear that the SRA will now more than ever look at law firms - not just individuals - to understand what they are doing to ensure they are complying with their regulatory obligations. 
 

The current era of legal services regulation is focused not only on an in depth examination of what individual lawyers are doing, but more broadly how law firms are ensuring their lawyers and non-qualified employees are meeting their obligations. The industry can therefore expect an increased focus on culture, equality, diversity and inclusion, wellbeing and the on-going issues of bullying and harassment in the workplace.

Firms will increasingly need to ensure that their general workplace culture is embedded within their firm. This not only means ensuring policies and procedures are up to date and aligned to best practice, but that every partner and employee understands their firm’s culture and values and ensures they carry those with them every day.

Our Regulatory and Professional Discipline team has brought together an expert panel to discuss the issues that arise.

The panel of experts, chaired by Joshua Rozenberg QC (hon) include:

  • Iain Miller, Partner at Kingsley Napley and General Editor of Cordery on Legal Services.; 
  • Crispin Passmore, Founder and Managing Director of Passmore Consulting expert consultancy  working with solicitors, legal businesses and regulators and former executive director of Policy at the Solicitors Regulation Authority;
  • Sarah de Gay, Visiting Professor at UCL Laws.  She is also a special advisor and former general Counsel at Slaughter and May and  co-author of The In-Houser publication which translates SRA rules for in-house lawyers;
  • Jessica Clay, Senior Associate at Kingsley Napley and former Principal Legal Adviser in the General Counsel team at the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA).
