Running a Freelance or Virtual Law Firm in 2020 with the SRA
SRA regulations came into effect in November 2019 paving the way for a new way of practising law, operating as a freelancer, creating virtual law firms and participating in the new legal economy. But what does it mean to run a freelance practice or virtual firm and what does it mean for my career in law.

Timo Karakashev, Guy Stern, Emma Tunley and Jatinderpal Loyal
Reflections on the SRA regulation event and changes to the legal landscape: How has the legal profession reacted to the changes in regulation? How can lawyers take advantage of the shifting legal landscape? How is technology changing the nature of legal work anywhere do we go from here?

Timo Karakashev and Guy Stern
In 2020, every lawyer in the world got a taste of remote work but for many lawyers, this has been the status quo for some time. Legal Connection is a tool that feels like a social network tool but functions like a practice management suite. Learn what inspired Guy to build the product and how it's being used to facilitate freelance and virtual practice.
15.45 - 16.00 Third Party Managed Accounts
Timo Karakashev, Jatinderpal Loyal and Geoff Dunnett
With the rise of remote work comes a rise in cybercrime and law firms doing large transactions are particularly at risk.
