Codes of Conduct inc COLP & COFA

Whilst, in the latest version of the Codes of conduct, the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) have simplified the rules, the application of these and ensuring a large firm and its staff operates a fully compliant structure remains a time consuming process.

One of the by products of simplifying rules is that it makes the policing of these much clearer and it remains essential that law firms consider, interpret, and apply the rules without deviation to ensure they achieve a fully compliant status.
