Are your employees aware of the procedures and protocols applying in your office organisation? Is your office in compliance with the rules? Are you well-prepared for a visit from the Dean of the Bar Association?
The former Dean of The Hague Bar Association, Bas Martens, has founded Advius which provides management advice to lawyers and law firms. He works together with Suzanne Hendrickx of SHE Legal. Martens and Hendrickx give courses in the area of the rules and regulations of the Netherlands Bar Association, risk management, disciplinary law, money-laundering rules (Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing (Prevention) Act) and the Personal Data Protection Act. In monitoring processes, they check the compliance of a law firm against the regulations pertaining to business guidance to classical law firms or to so-called Cohen firms. The services comprise the streamlining of the organisation, preparations for a visit of a Dean, an exit plan of a partner, or a general modernization of the office and the organisation.
