Identifying and dealing with potential problems and risks.
File reviews are seen within the Legal Sector as a mixed blessing. For some they provide a real barometer of the levels of client care, and compliance with the SRA Code of Conduct in particular. For others they can be seen as a time consuming ‘tick box’ process.
We can conduct these reviews for you and provide you with a report outlining the strengths and potential problem trends that emerge. We cannot check the quality of legal advice that has been provided; your routine supervision methods should deal with that, but we can check compliance with Client Care and Regulatory procedures; the areas that tend to result in complaints and claims.
This service provides you with a clear picture of many compliance issues, and the chance to reduce fee earning ‘abstraction’ time.
