Take three steps forward, and don’t look back
Your firm has much to gain from developing a tailored Risk Management Framework that incorporates an overarching objective; a process for risk identification, analysis, and management; and governance arrangements. A Risk Management Framework:
- Strengthens an existing strategic plan
- Adds value to clients who are increasingly expecting risk management from a law firm
- Provides a simpler approach to implement legislative and regulatory requirements
- Reduces vulnerability to cybercrime and commercial espionage
- Ensures compliance with the new SRA Code of Conduct.
In this practical report, Alison Hook outlines a systematic, three-step risk management approach to aid your firm in its due diligence relating to international risk and compliance.
