Training and development

Are your staff aware of their responsibilities under the SRA Handbook?
    Is everyone in your firm up to date on their anti-money laundering and data protection obligations?

Our experts deliver bespoke training sessions tailored to your requirements in all aspects of  compliance. This can be in the form of a seminar, a lecture, a workshop or one-to-one coaching on areas such as:

  • Anti-money laundering
  • Data protection/GDPR
  • The SRA Handbook 2011
  • COLP and COFA duties and responsibilities
  • Cybercrime, fraud and information security
  • The SRA Accounts Rules 2011
  • Risk management
  • Mortgage fraud
  • Client care and complaints handling
  • Conflicts of interest
  • Equality and diversity

We carefully design the format of each training session to suit the needs of your firm with a view to offering practical advice to you and your staff on how best to comply with the requirements of the Handbook and relevant legislation.

There is a need to train and develop staff at all levels on their responsibilities under the SRA Handbook. We have found that in a number of firms, the COLP and COFA take most if not all of the strain. For an effective approach to compliance, a culture of collective responsibility has to be established. We support compliance officers by training fee earners and support staff on their responsibilities under the SRA Handbook.

Given the need to train all staff and not just fee earners, firms find that our in-house training sessions provide the most convenient and cost-effective solution.

We can, for example, train your entire accounts team, at your offices, on their responsibilities under the SRA Handbook and help them understand their role in avoiding breaches of the rules and preventing fraud (an ever growing and evolving problem) and money laundering. We also provide one to one training to COLPs, COFAs or MLROs.

We work with you to tailor the training course to your requirements. We offer seminars, workshops, lectures or one-to-one coaching.
