Outlook appointment tracking not updating
Independence and integrity, and the lack of diversity in the profession complete the set of eight risks.
Both are fundamental to public trust and confidence and I urge you to look at the useful new content we have included in these sections.
We know that the numbers of solicitors who would willingly get involved are very small, but the harm to the public and potentially the reputation of the profession is significant.
We want to help everyone recognise and avoid these dubious schemes.
The Risk Outlook is not guidance, and does not contain exhaustive lists of obligations or actions.
Poor service often leads to people not receiving the help they need and that can have an even greater impact when someone is vulnerable.
To get best value out of the Risk Outlook, solicitors and law firms should think about how the risks apply to their own business.
Our assessment of risk is based on a wide range of input from across the sector.
Many people and small businesses do not get the legal help they need.
This can lead to poor outcomes for individuals, hamper business growth and hinder the proper administration of justice.
We are focusing on high professional standards and freeing up firms and solicitors to work in new ways, helping to make sure we have a modern profession in a modern legal economy.
