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.

This report:

  • Examines the real benefits of effective supervision and what you can do to implement effective risk management, practices and procedures
  • Contains practical material such as checklists which you can follow and implement immediately
  • Features contributions from experts such as: Tony Guise, director at Guise Solicitors and SDT defence lawyer; Andrew Hopper QC; Alison Matthews, director at regulatory compliance consultancy Alison Matthews Consulting Ltd; and Frank Maher of Legal Risk
  • Gives a thorough breakdown of of high level SRA rules and guidance, with easy-to-follow steps
  • Discusses the future of the legal market, including imminent CPD changes and training requirements and SRA proposals to ease the burden of compliance
