Complimentary On Demand Webinar - Negative Interest Rate Charges and Solicitors’ Accounts Regulations – Practice Guidance and Need to Know Essentials for Day-to-Day Practice
This online, on demand webinar is essential for all practitioners. Speakers include John Elliot, Director of Regulation. This is a practical look at the Law Society Practice Note 
 
Aims and objectives
A Practice Note has been issued by the Registrar of Solicitors and Director of Regulation setting out the regulatory implications of negative interest charges that some banks are seeking to impose on a firm’s client account. This practice note provides practical information and guidance regarding how a solicitor should comply with their obligations under the Solicitors Accounts Regulations where their bank imposes such charges on their client accounts. This seminar is an opportunity to hear the Director of Regulation and a member of the Law Society Task Force on Negative Interest Rate Charges give a practical explanation of the guidance notes and how this will impact on day-to-day practice. 
 
Learning outcomes
A delegate who attends this seminar will 
•gain an understanding of the actions a solicitor should take when notified of negative interest charges on their client account,
•gain an understanding of how negative interest charges may be recovered in the context of a solicitor and client relationship, and
•gain an understanding of the general obligations and arrangements in respect of client moneys.
