Firm & File Audits

Undertaking audits is an essential aspect of the supervision programme of a law firm and without effective audits it is difficult for a firm to demonstrate a proactive supervisory programme that highlights and manages risk.

If a law firm does not have an effective audit strategy they will be unable to fully demonstrate active supervision and evidence that the supervision structure is working. In most firms, file reviews and audits are common place as files are reviewed on a continuous bases at various critical points; such as risk reviews, complaints, supervisory guidance etc.
