    What might the Future Hold for Law and other Professional Service Firms?

    40:25

    Rapid technological developments have made, and will continue to make, a significant impact on professional service firms by changing the way in which they devise new business models, replace distribution channels, and modify and adapt the way people and businesses interact with each other. Everybody has an opinion about how professional services are evolving, and how “firms of the future” might be different to those of today. In the legal sector, which is arguably less ‘transformed’ than some of the other professions so far, many firms view this topic with some trepidation. In this webinar recording, we look at whether artificial intelligence (AI) will actually replace lawyers and, if so, are there ethical or moral dilemmas that should be considered regarding AI and the legal industry? In this webinar, you can hear Chair, Rob Millard, Director of the Cambridge Strategy Group and speakers, Tara Chittenden and Dr Kion Ahadi, of the Law Society of England & Wales (LSE&W), discuss issues including the following: • How potential future change will have an impact on diversity and inclusion, particularly in more senior positions; • How Generation Z have begun to reshape global politics as we see a generational shift in allegiance and identity; • Whether the rise of machines will free up time vs threaten jobs; and • How, according to research carried out by LSE&W, it is expected that, by 2030, the workforce in the legal sector, including lawyers and legal support staff, will reduce by half.

    Will Firms Run Out of Cash and what should they do about it?

    59:48

    Earlier this summer, the Treasury launched a consultation to reform taxation for self-employed businesses where the accounting year for the business differs from the tax year. Under the proposals, the transition for the change was due to take place in 2022/23, however last week the Treasury announced a delay by at least 12 months with the transition not coming into effect before 2023/24. In addition, the Government recently announced a new health and social care levy by increasing National Insurance Contributions by 1.25% to take effect from 6 April 2022, before the Budget announcement on 27 October. In this webinar, you can hear Chair Claire Watkins, Buzzacott LLP, and speakers Zulon Begum, CM Murray LLP, Corinne Staves, Maurice Turnor Gardner LLP, James Currie, Buzzacott LLP, and Rob Millard, Cambridge Strategy Group discuss the following: 1. How important it is for firms and partners to understand that taking advantage of the transitional period for the Base Period reform could result in their paying substantially more income tax than expected - it could mean spreading profits of the transitional year across the following five years (with the prospect of paying unknown higher tax rates in those years on those profits), rather than spreading the crystallised tax over those five years; 2. The need for partners to have a clear understanding of the extent to which they and their firm are (or in many cases are not) presently fully reserved against the partner’s individual tax liability – and to ensure that the firm has not just reserved and set monies aside against the partner’s upcoming payment due in January and July 2022, but also against the tax payments that will be due subsequently;  3. The Basis Period reform could consequently bring a lot of under-reserved partner tax balances home to roost, and is important for firms and partners to start cash flow scenario planning now, and to consider the range of funding options available to finance the additional tax and national insurance burden if needed in due course; and 4. The impact of the changes on for senior employees in LLPs, and the ways in which firms can make potential FSP and future EP status (and capital contribution) as attractive and engaging as possible to individuals who may only see risk and loss of employment security. The key changes that firms should consider making to their constitutions now, which will equip them to act very quickly if they need to raise money or conserve cash in future at short notice.

    Board Diversity: Episode 3 - The Latest Drivers for Change to Diversity on Boards

    28:11

    We are delighted to bring you the third episode of our mini podcast series on board diversity and how it has progressed over recent years. Teresa L. Johnson, Partner at Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer LLP in San Francisco, joins Partner Emma Bartlett to discuss the drivers for change to diversity on boards that are currently taking place and the impact these will have. In this episode, Teresa and Emma discuss the following: The impact on board diversity following NASDAQ’s approval of new board diversity regulations and, in the UK, the FCA’s progressive proposals for board diversity for certain financial sector organisations. Both the US and UK follow the ‘comply or explain’ method of implementing the changes. How the FCA changes will lead the way for other industries and regulators in the UK. The proposed changes include: A voluntary target of 40% of the board to be made up of women, including those identifying as women; At least one senior board position should be held by a woman; At least one member of the board should be from a non-white ethnic minority background; Boards will be required to comply or explain in their annual financial reporting how they are performing against these voluntary targets. It can be more difficult for smaller boards to promote diversity with their board members and therefore more challenging to meet set targets The US has seen a big groundswell of support for compliance pushed by investors and effort to comply. For more information on the topics covered in this recording, please contact our Partner Emma Bartlett, who specialises in employment and partnership issues for multinational employers, senior executives, partnerships and partners.

    Personal Risk Management for Partners: Professional Practices Alliance Webinar Recording

    56:24

    We are pleased to share with you the recording from our recent Professional Practices Alliance (PPA) expert discussion, ‘Personal Risk Management for Partners’. Partners of professional practices spend their entire careers focused on the protecting interests of their clients. This can sometimes be at the expense of their own planning. In this podcast recording, you can hear Chair, Corinne Staves (Partner and Head of Professional Practices, Maurice Turnor Gardner LLP) and panel speakers, Rachel O’Donoghue (Partner and Head of Financial Planning, Buzzacott LLP), James Currie (Senior Tax Manager, Buzzacott LLP), David Shufflebotham (Founder, PEPUP.consulting), Fiona Poole (Partner, Maurice Turnor Gardner LLP) and Beth Hale (Partner, CM Murray LLP) explore the actions that all partners should be considering and the extent to which firms should be involved in personal risk management. In particular, this panel address the following: • the key personal risks for professional partners; • financial planning and legal protections that partners should put in place; • the extent to which firms should implement measures to protect partners, for example, death in service and/or life insurance benefits; • whether insurances could benefit of the firm (i.e., to manage cashflow) or the partners/their families, for example, life insurance and income protection; • how a firm can manage the risks of partner death/incapacity; and • how a firm’s agreement and policies can support this process including the protections which should be included in LLP deeds as well as powers to remove and suspend.
