Website Audit SERVICE
At Teal, we’re pleased to offer a website audit service, that provides a full and comprehensive review of your website, making sure it adheres to the SRA Regulations.
Why is a website audit important for law firms?
The SRA Transparency Rules (the Rules) came into force back in December 2018. The Rules require firms to publish price and service information if they publish that they work in the following areas:
- Residential conveyancing
- Probate (uncontested)
- Motoring offences (summary offences)
- Immigration (excluding asylum)
- Employment tribunals (unfair/wrongful dismissal)
- Debt recovery (up to £100,000)
- Licensing applications (business premises)
If your firm doesn’t have a website, you must still have this information available upon request in other formats.
In addition, the Rules require firms to publish details of their complaints procedure on their website and, from 25 November 2019, firms were also required to display the SRA’s digital logo in a prominent place on their website.
In early 2019, the SRA commenced a programme of random sweeps of firm websites to monitor on-going compliance with the Rules. Following this work, the SRA reported that only 25% of firms were fully compliant with the Rules. Of the remaining 75%, 58% were partially compliant and 17% were not compliant with the Rules at all.
In March 2020 following a second sweep, we’ve seen a number of firms receiving notices from the SRA of non-compliance. So, it’s clear that the SRA is taking website compliance extremely seriously!
How can Teal's website audit service help?
We know that finding time to deal with new regulations, such as the Transparency Rules, can require considerable work to achieve compliance. This can be challenging, especially when the compliance landscape is continually changing.
Teal’s website audit service provides law firms with the support they need. We provide guidance on whether we consider your website is compliant with the Rules, and can assist with any remedial action needed.
Also, we can provide guidance and assistance if you’ve received an SRA Notice informing you of non-compliance and directing you to take remedial action.
