People who are comfortable dealing with partners and board members, and who understand your specific concerns. We’ve specialised in advising the professional services sector for many years, and work with a large number of small and medium-sized law firms.
We can help you meet your financial compliance requirements through:
Also, to help improve your compliance with the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) accounting guidelines, we can advise on the systems and controls of your client accounts.
With MiPB, you won’t have to worry about Making Tax Digital
(MTD) and can be safe in the knowledge that we will take care
of all of the necessary submissions.
As well as helping you comply, we offer a range of strategic support to help grow your practice:

This allows more flexibility than traditional law firms, opening up new and exciting opportunities for both legal and non-legal professionals. For example, you can offer a variety of services to clients within the same entity, and be known as a multidisciplinary practice.
An ABS must be licensed by the SRA and meet a range of requirements. We can advise you on these, and help you decide whether an ABS is for you. If you go ahead, we can guide you through the application process.
Since then, we’ve helped many law and accountancy firms – and other practices in professional services and healthcare – to convert to LLP status.
As an LLP, you combine the benefits of limited liability with the flexibility of organising your internal structure as a traditional partnership. You have the same tax rules as a partnership, you can secure bank borrowings on debtors, and you can create a more corporate structure with its own assets and subsidiary companies.
There’s a lot to consider when setting up an LLP – such as engagement terms, profit sharing and exit strategies. We can help you through the process, making it as smooth as possible for everyone involved, including partners, employees, bankers, clients, landlords and suppliers.
Alternatively, conversion to a limited company might be more appropriate for your firm. You might be attracted by the extra credibility that corporate status can bring, or by the ability to pay dividends to shareholders or set up an approved pension scheme. We can advise you on the implications, and help you with all aspects of conversion.
The PDR process can help direct and motivate them, by ensuring they each have a defined role, and that they’re using their strongest skills for the benefit of the whole organisation. We’ve been delighted with the results of the process in our own firm, and we now help implement it with other practices.
Our PDR information pack contains all you need to set up the process: partner role specifications, core skills and tasks, and how to apply and measure the process in practice – including easy-to-use on-screen 360 degree feedback. And, of course, we’re here to advise you on any aspects of your PDR.
