Why work with us?

EXPERTISE & EXCELLENCE

We don’t dabble. All of our compliance consultants are either former lawyers (now non-practising) or SRA staff with years of experience and genuine expertise in their respective areas. We only accept a project if we can deliver excellence for our clients. If we’re not the best for your particular job we’ll connect you with someone who is.

SOLVING YOUR PROBLEMS

We love to work side by side with our clients and step into their shoes to find the most practical solution to their challenges. Whether it is project managing your law firm application, partnering up to outsource your COLP support, conducting health checks or AML audits or re-writing procedures, we get a kick out of simplifying the solution.

SAVING TIME AND MONEY

We have access to a comprehensive suite of risk and compliance templates, e-learning and apps. Combined with years of expertise we can make incredibly rapid progress on otherwise time consuming costly projects. We’ve worked with hundreds of law firms and our testimonials, client retention and client referral rates speak for themselves.

Our Founder: Andy Donovan

Our Founder: Andy Donovan

Andy is a self-confessed SRA compliance geek. He literally helped write the book(s) on SRA compliance.  While working at the SRA, Andy contributed to the drafting of the SRA Code of Conduct 2009 as well as the SRA Handbook 2011. Seeing a need in the market for a simpler set of compliance tools and keen to share knowledge more widely, Andy left the SRA in 2014 to establish the Compliance Office. Since then he has overseen the development of the Compliance Office into one of the leading SRA compliance consultancy services with a dedicated team of specialist consultants supporting law firms with their compliance and SRA authorisation. Andy has written extensively on the topic of SRA compliance including as a contributor to the ‘Law of Legal Services‘ published by LexisNexis. Outside of the Compliance Office Andy holds a fee-paid judicial post and sits on fitness to practise hearings for the General Medical Council’s Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service. Please note that while Andy has a background in law he is a non-practising solicitor providing risk and compliance consultancy (rather than legal) services through the Compliance Office.

 

Proven Success

We keep our clients happy

We never tie our clients in to long term contracts, whether it be our monthly compliance retainers or subscriptions to our Compliance Office in the Cloud e-learning, CPD tracker or risk registers tools. Our clients can leave any time but we’re very proud to say,,, they don’t. In fact our clients recommend us to their friends. Referrals from other happy clients make about half of our business.
