Ian, who has extensive practical experience of legal risk management, leads our risk services. He teaches risk management and risk governance to solicitors and other compliance specialists for the Law Society of Scotland. Ian has also written for the Law Society Gazette and the Solicitors Journal on the subject.
By using innovative, but trusted, methods from the wider risk management world that we have adapted for smaller law firms, we will advise you on the steps that you can take. Some risks (like the pandemic) you cannot avoid, but you can build operational resilience to ensure that you keep delivering your services and so protect your clients, employees, firm, and the profession.
