COLP Support Service

How can we help?

Our aim is to alleviate some of the pressures of undertaking the role of COLP. We can’t take away your legal responsibility but we can take on some of the time consuming activities and help to give you peace of mind that you are adhering to SRA guidelines.

Our ongoing support service will ensure that you keep up to date with regulatory changes . We will tailor our service to your specific needs and will be flexible with our approach, although would usually expect to be responsible for regularly reviewing your compliance systems to ensure that they meet regulatory requirements in addition to helping you to monitor compliance in practice.

We would obviously also provide right hand support for this vital role when you need it.

We can assist the COLP in the following ways:

  • Providing regulatory updates
  • Updating manuals as necessary
  • Undertaking file reviews
  • Facilitating effective management of issues likely to arise
  • Updating risk registers and action plans
  • Providing online and telephone support
  • Providing guidance on specific compliance issues as they arise
  • Promoting a pro-active attitude toward compliance throughout the firm

Depending on what works for you we can agree a monthly retainer or quote for a one off project.
