Introduction

New codes of conduct have been with us for some months now, and new flexibilities have been opened up. Under lockdown, however, much of the thinking behind running a law firm - and the ethical standards that must be applied - has not changed despite the unusual circumstances we all now find ourselves facing.

Learn how to reconcile a zero-tolerance policy with a culture of confession and keep the regulators happy - and find out how to ensure you and your firm remain compliant notwithstanding the current difficulties.

What You Will Learn

This webinar will cover the following:

  • The key duties and the ‘new’ rules
  • COVID-19 - the reaction of the regulators to new patterns of working
  • Supervision and control of home workers
  • Steps to ensure safe working practices
  • Guidance and assistance from Regulators and HMG
  • Breaches in practice - how easy it is to get it wrong
  • The need for transparency
  • The need for adherence
  • How best to protect you and your firm
  • Where can new staff receive guidance?
  • The rules broken most frequently are the most basic - costs, conflicts, confidentiality, undertakings
  • How many reports of code breaches are made to your COLP?
  • Do your clients still complain about costs?
  • Are your fee-earners doing all the conflict checks? Are you certain? How do you know?
  • Are your cyber systems secure? What impact has homeworking had on your systems and procedures?
  • Can saying ‘cool’ land you in big trouble?
  • How do you know when you are getting it wrong?
  • What should you do if you are getting it wrong?
  • Will you lose your job if you report mistakes to your COLP?

This pre-recorded webinar will be streamed at 12:30pm on Friday 26th June 2020 and will remain available to view by delegates who have registered by then for 90 days.
