Are your chambers working as effectively as possible?
Changes brought about by the Legal Services Act and introduction of a new chambers quality accreditation system to replace BarMark will cause a re-think within chambers as to how they go about identifying and managing risk to chambers’ strategic objectives. At the same time the Bar Standards Board are introducing a risk based approach to bar regulation. Now is the time to consider a fresh approach to the management of risk within chambers. Consider the following as examples of risk areas:
Competition – the Legal Services Act promotes competition in the provision of services.
New systems - new data handling systems need to work effectively.
New working practices – hot desking and the drive for paperless offices to maximise efficiencies requires employee acceptance.
