The Solicitor's Handbook 2017 is a comprehensive yet user-friendly guide to the regulatory maze that governs the conduct of solicitors.

This invaluable resource includes expert commentary from leading practitioners on every aspect of the regulation of solicitors, which will help you ensure compliance within your firm.

  • The changes to the separate business rule and what this means for firms
  • Key changes to consumer credit regulation - the impact on firms
  • New section on the new entrant ABS or entity regulators of solicitors (in entities regulated by BSB and ICAEW)
  • Expected changes to the SRA Handbook including an overhaul of the Accounts Rules
  • Inclusion of a new section on cyber fraud.
  • This book will provide an explanation of the impact of these significant changes, together with commentary with reference to practical problems.
