With the pressure to cut costs without sacrificing quality, certain aspects of legal work are increasingly likely to be automated, outsourced, or undertaken by paralegals or other non-lawyers. The question of supervision has therefore never been more relevant.
However, it’s not just junior and unqualified staff who need supervision – what about solicitors who are dealing with a transaction that is new to them? Or the experienced legal executive who may have been making the same mistakes for years? What is more, supervisors do not always recognise their own obligations to supervise.
Without the proper policies, systems, and training in place, your firm could be left open to the risk of complaints, loss of business, and disciplinary action. With the SRA’s move to entity-based regulation, partners or sole practitioners are now to be held responsible for omissions and mistakes made by unsupervised staff – whatever their level.
Managing Partner's brand new report, Supervision in Law Firms, will help you understand and implement the systems you must have in place to ensure that everyone in your firm is properly supervised in compliance with the SRA’s rules on supervision.
