For Legal Professionals

At CWP Accountants, we provide specialist accountancy and business advisory services to the legal profession. Over the years, we’ve developed strong working relationships with a wide range of solicitors' practices across the North of England and Midlands.

Solicitors Regulatory Authority

Unlike many accountant practices, we recognise and understand the requirements governing the conduct of client and office accounts under the Solicitors Accounts Rules 2011, as well as the related compliance issues imposed by the SRA Handbook.

Our experts have developed a specialist range of accounting and business services that meet the legal industry’s specific needs. These include reconciliation reporting to COFA and, advising and implementing Client Account administration  to ensure compliance with SRA Accounts Rules.

Regulatory compliance and development

In partnership with our associated consultant we provide regulatory advice and guidance on a broad range of issues including arrangements under LASPO, complaints management, risk management and care and conduct procedures, COLP and COFA obligations and other matters under the Code.

We assist on applications for the Law Society's Lexcel Practice Management Standards and provide all necessary documentation. We can provide advice and guidance with regard to SRA checks and enquiries, investigations and reports, and proceedings before the SDT.
