Risk Management

Risk Management

The communication of information on risks is important in helping our members, those non-members who hold practice rights, and our entities, to mitigate risk.

The following topics cover some of the main risks that you will see on a day-to-day basis, the benefits of putting in place policies and procedures to address them, and where to find additional support and help. We have also published guidance and papers from other organisations that we believe will help manage risk.

With the legal sector seen as an attractive target for those wishing to launder the proceeds of crime, this is a major risk for us all to combat. Our guidance and information to assist individuals and firms to help combat money laundering can now be found at Money Laundering

We will look to add any new areas of risk as they are identified and we welcome your suggestions for future topics. Please send us your ideas to info@cilexregulation.org.uk
