Legal Business

A different focus – Round Table

The fourth Legal Business/Marsh round table brought together a group of risk managers to discuss the changing regulatory landscape and how they manage their risk functions

It is perhaps not surprising that the fourth risk round table hosted by Legal Business and Marsh was dominated by one subject. The Solicitors Regulation Authority’s new Code of Conduct, as a part of the move to outcomes-focused regulation (OFR) due in the Autumn, is weighing heavily on the minds of most risk professionals in the largest firms. The prospect of following indicative behaviours, managing relations with the SRA and appointing a compliance officer for legal practice (COLP) were all raised in the course of the discussion.
