IPReg Training

Legal Finance Professionals provide the following IPReg training course.

  • Regulation by IPReg

NEW: Regulation by IPReg

3 CPD Hours

This course will include a detailed examination of IPReg‘s current Code of Conduct and Litigators Code together with relevant guidance issued by IPReg to ensure that delegates are in the best position to achieve compliance within their firms. Leading subject expert, Richard Lane, will look at the handling of clients’ money under the IPReg Code of Conduct and Litigators Code by considering IPReg‘s guidance and generally accepted best practice in relation to the proper handling and accounting for clients’ money. Delegates will learn about the role and obligations of the Head of Legal Practice (HoLP) and Head of Finance & Administration (HoFA) under IPReg regulation. Consideration will also be given to the new Money Laundering Regulations 2017, which came into force in June 2017, and the thorny question as to whether or not IPReg entities fall within the regulated sector.
