Some of the core issues will cover:

Ad hoc General Risk and Compliance tasks including but not limited to:

  • Assisting in monitoring compliance of the firm’s AML procedures
  • Conducting searches & carrying out electronic AML checks
  • Maintaining and updating various central risk registers, complaints, confidentiality breaches, conflicts, undertakings, compliance with Legal Ombudsman’ awards
  • Responding to internal queries
  • Carrying out file reviews
  • Assisting in carrying out conflicts searches and providing general risk and compliance advice

PI, Claims and Complaints focused work:

  • Providing assistance and support to those who notify of a relevant event including advice and assistance with client management.
  • Determining if there is a reportable incident
  • Reporting to and liaising with the firm’s professional indemnity insurer
  • Acting as point of contact to manage relationship with panel solicitors
  • Assisting in relation to PII renewal process
  • Providing updated information on notifications/claims for Lender Exchange / Conveyancing lenders panel
