Partner Event: Ark Group Risk Management for Law Firms (December 6-7, London)

The Ark Group is hosting its annual "Risk Management for Law Firms" conference in London next week. Organizers have assembled a rich agenda and impressive roster of speakers who will address topics including:
  • A first-hand account of how firms including Taylor Wessing, Freshfields, and Allen & Overy have tackled the challenges in operating under the new outcomes-focused regulation
  • Clarity from the SRA, Law Society and Legal Ombudsman as they share their expectations for OFR, ABS and the claim trends for the coming year
  • Tools to benchmark your firm against leading law firms' risk management strategies and ensure you stay out of trouble
  • An understanding of the key changes and trends in claims over the past year and how these will affect your professional indemnity insurance renewal
  • Learning opportunities to avoid the pointed end of regulation, with an overview of high-profile disciplinary matters and rogue partners
  • A forum to consider all risks relating to outsourcing
Kaye Sycamore, IntApp Managing Director, will also be presenting a briefing on risk news and trends relating to confidentiality management, information barriers and information security issues affecting law firms, including a summary of recent Risk Roundtable events. She has invited UK-based firms interested in exploring these issues in greater detail to contact her directly.
