COLP Bleet 14 May 2015
It was an exciting week for the legal profession as we learn that Gateley are the first law firm to seek an AIM listing.

Their press release also offers an interesting insight into their current business and their proposed strategy.
Unnecessary bureaucracy fans will be disappointed to see that the SRA is proposing to reduce red tape and simplify the SRA Handbook. There is an opportunity to provide feedback on their consultation until 11 June.
Finally, Legal Futures highlights yet again the importance of robust cyber security to law firms. We are considering focussing on cyber security risk at the September COLP Forum. Your views on this would be welcome.
