Managing AML in 2023 – what does the strengthening regime mean for your firm?

 The Edwardian Manchester |Thursday 18th May 2023 | 10.00 – 16.00

Calling all Practice Managers, COLPs, COFAs, MLROs, Conveyancers and all legal professionals… do not miss this event!

Held at the impressive Edwardian Hotel in central Manchester, moments away from the heart of the city’s Spinningfields business district, this year’s Legal Eye conference will be the biggest and best to date.

Running from 10 am until 4pm, the day will feature both panel and round table sessions. As regulators continue to tighten the risk regime and more firms come under increasing levels of scrutiny, we will cover topical and pertinent issues for law firms and in particular for those tasked with creating and maintaining a robust risk and compliance framework that protects their firm.

AML will form a key focus for the day as well as topics such as how to deal with complaints effectively, through to the challenges the conveyancing sector is facing in respect of climate change – just how far are conveyancers expected to go to ensure they meet their obligations?

The popular conference, supported by Headline Sponsor X-Press and Sponsors Armalytix, First AML, Groundsure, The Cashroom and Move Reports, is especially timely given the Risk Outlook for 2022/23 which highlighted the ‘new normal’ and the need to ensure an increase in its proactive monitoring and regulating of anti-money laundering arrangements within the profession.

So, what can be anticipated for the rest of this year and the future? How does the industry make sure that it can keep up with client demands and still meet regulatory obligations? How do law firms mitigate the new emerging risks? How do firms continue to grow and meet client expectations?

With an array of speakers who are prominent in their field, we’ll hear from Taranjeet Singh Babra from the SRA, Jason Chapman from LeO, and CLC’s Sebastian Harrison/Amy Hayes amongst others, during what is sure to be a useful, practical and informative day.

Suitable for both SRA and CLC-regulated firms as well as firms operating across a wide spread of practice areas, this day conference is a must-attend event. Come and join us from 9.30am (for the 10m start) and enjoy an engaging day that will conclude by 4pm followed by networking drinks.

Come and join us! Book your place today – limited spaces still available.
