Our risk and compliance support service for law firms is a product that we have developed in conjunction with Andrew McLauchlan. Andrew has over 20 years experience in the legal compliance industry and has worked with us as an external adviser for several years. During his career he has worked in firm facing and advisory roles for the Law Society, the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and has significant in-house experience, primarily in a management role with a national law firm.
Since 2011, Andrew has been providing consultancy support mainly for law firms regulated by the SRA although he also has experience of the regulatory requirements of the Council for Licenced Conveyancers.
He has seen many of the firms that he has helped establish and gain authorisation from the legal regulators prosper, safe in the knowledge that the regulatory obligations applied to them have been addressed and are kept up to date as the regulatory frameworks change.
We can fully endorse Andrew’s expertise and contribution, given that he has worked with us from day one of our business inception. He directed the strategy regarding our own successful application for authorisation to the SRA and since that date has worked with us on a consultancy basis, helping us to achieve Lexcel accreditation at the end of our first year of trading and assisting us to maintain our adherence to the standard ever since.
He has been vitally important with the maintenance of our regulatory obligations and in dealing with any issues that occur from time to time. In common with many firms, some of these issues can be complex or worrying in nature, and it has always been a reassurance to know that we have Andrew’s guidance and expertise to rely on.
He has been a thoroughly trusted adviser to us, and we are now delighted to now be able to offer the same services to other law firms that we have received from him.
Please note that not all compliance advisers have the breadth of experience they claim to have. We would welcome the opportunity to have a no obligation discussion with you about how we can help and advise you using our wealth of expertise.
