Practice Compliance

Every law firm has a legal duty to comply with the SRA Handbook and a raft of other legislation and regulations. Get it wrong and you personally face investigation, disciplinary action, fines and prosecution (not to mention the damage to your reputation).

LexisPSL Practice Compliance is an online risk and compliance toolkit designed to help your firm get in line and stay in line. With clear, concise notes written by leading experts in compliance, spelling out exactly what you need to do in practical terms. Plus all the forms, checklists, policies, registers, templates and examples you need to do it right. We even provide training aids to help you educate your staff in key compliance areas.

And our lawyers check all our content to make sure it’s always in line with the latest changes in the law and the marketplace. So you can be completely confident your house is in order, at all times.
