Risk and Compliance Service

About the Risk and Compliance Service

The Risk and Compliance Service was established in 2008 to help legal practitioners stay up-to-date with all the regulatory obligations affecting them. Since then we have enhanced our membership service to keep you and your staff up-to-date with relevant news and features, including:

  • New website content
  • Monthly e-newsletters
  • Four topical and inclusive webinars and
  • Discounts on seminars, conferences and books.

The Risk and Compliance Advisory Service can provide you with more tailored advice, bespoke support and training, relevant to your firm and delivered face-to-face by one of our expert risk and compliance advisors.

We offer a highly trusted source of information and expertise and work with you to understand your current risk profile and to ensure you have what you need to implement any required mitigating measures.


Our aim is to provide our members you with relevant information and valuable tailored advice across a range of regulatory challenges including:

  • anti-money laundering,
  • business continuity,
  • client care and complaints handling,
  • continuing competence,
  • cyber security,
  • data protection,
  • outcomes-focused regulation,
  • PI insurance, and
  • compliance with the SRA Handbook.

Keeping up with your compliance obligations and safeguarding your business is crucial in the face of ongoing changes to the legal regulatory landscape.
