Helen Evans speaking at DAC Beachcroft webinar: Looking after Lawyers – Solicitors Regulatory Risks Update


28th April 2021
1pm BST

4 New Square’s Helen Evans will join Clare Hughes-Williams and Naomi Park of DAC Beachcroft to discuss key regulatory exposures for solicitors including:

  • How far should the SRA be able to scrutinise lawyers’ private lives? Regulatory risks arising from conduct outside the workplace, and a consideration of the High Court’s decision in SRA v Beckwith.
  • Mental health and regulation. How much attention does the SRA pay to these issues, including an examination of the recent decision in SRA v Claire Matthews?
  • Remote working fraud risks. The SRA has issued guidance, but how much latitude will or should it give solicitors in core arears of risk? We will look at key areas where firms are vulnerable to fraud- including client money, money laundering and risks created by arm’s length supervision
