It is a condition of authorisation that all SRA-authorised law firms must have a compliance officer for legal practice (COLP) and a compliance officer for finance and administration (COFA), and that these individuals must comply with regulatory duties imposed on them personally.
Now in its third edition, COLP and COFA: Compliance in Practice provides the role-holders, and anyone concerned with supporting the role-holders, with essential information about regulatory and ethical standards and compliance procedures that will support the achievement of these standards and facilitate a good working relationship with the SRA.
Written by Tracey Calvert, a former employee of both the Law Society and the SRA, this edition has been updated to include the latest requirements as evidenced by the SRA Standards and Regulations, and includes lessons learned from supervisory and enforcement action.
