Money laundering seminar opens training; LEGAL FINANCE.
Matthew Moore, of Web4Law, a specialist consultancy in risk management issues for solicitors, analysed the revised Law Society guidance on the new Money Laundering Regulations 2007.
The two-hour seminar was held at the offices of Birmingham solicitors Williamson & Soden.
Recognising the common training requirement among law firms, especially support for fee earners working towards continuous professional development qualifications, Williamson & Soden has been heavily involved in getting the training consortium up and running.
"Our aim is to help solicitors meet their responsibilities while keeping costs down and we can do this by pooling resources and organising training courses locally to fit in with our work schedules," said HR manager Audrey Price.
"The response so far has been excellent and we are already researching a variety of training programmes, including opportunities for consortium members to share their expertise, to provide Solihull law firms with a cost-effective means of updating their legal and general business knowledge."
