Welcome to Compli

Lawyers continue to face unprecedented pressures and challenges to their businesses, whilst at the same time shouldering the burden of increasing regulation and scrutiny from the SRA. It is perhaps unsurprising then that law firm failures are on the increase as the impact of these changes is felt right across the profession.

Compli offers a unique support service which allows lawyers to get on with their business knowing that it is compliant in the eyes of the regulator. Whether your business is a partnership, limited company, ABS, or you operate as a sole practitioner, barrister or in-house solicitor, we can provide assistance and guidance to help you and your business not only to survive but thrive in these challenging times.

We have a tailor-made, fixed fee retainer service designed to support you in meeting the evolving regulatory, compliance and risk requirements you face. This is underpinned by incisive commercial advice on business management and structure, as well as employment and insolvency advice delivered by specialist teams with outstanding experience in their disciplines.

We also advise other stakeholders involved in the legal sector including banks, investors, insurers, and brokers.

Our services include:

  • Compliance, risk and emergency audits
  • Risk management
  • Complaints and claims handling
  • COLP & COFA support
  • Dashboard software to manage claims and compliance
  • Professional indemnity and successor practice advice
  • Captive insurance arrangements
