Where has this first quarter gone?

The ILFM team have been busy bunnies since January, mainly ensuring our experienced trainers are ready and raring to go with the new SRA Accounts Rules’ training events.  Probably not surprising that our highly proficient trainers have had to add new locations and dates to their training schedules, as the new Rules kick in soon.  A reminder of all of our training events…………… 

2019 Legal Finance Training Events


*New* SRA Accounts Rules 2019

The Fundamentals of Legal Cashiering

Cyber safety in your law firm - keeping client money safe

*New* Legal Practice Management

COFA Training

If you’d like to know more about dates and locations for any of the above (available to members and non-members, please do have a look HERE).


A few kind shout outs….

"Darren made this subject, that can be a little 'soul destroying' interesting. I felt I learnt a lot and feel more confident in explaining the wonderful subject of disbursements to my fee earners back in the office"

"The course was ideal for learning about the new SRA Rules 2019 - without going on this course I believe it would have been hard to interpret the rules and guidance on creating your own policies - I would definitely recommend this course. We feel well prepared to have our policies in place ready for November 2019" . Nicki Clarke - Starke and Co Family Law - Sole Legal Cashier

"I just wanted to say what a great course it was yesterday, really enjoyed it and Darren was a fantastic trainer."

"I love this training course! I am totally new to this field and this course really helped me to understand why we do the things we do. Great introduction and would Highly Recommend!"


Meet some of our trainers here – if you get Darren Whelan on a VAT training day, you are in for a treat.  Darren took over as the ILFM Chair last year and not only is he a leading industry keynote speaker, but the best in VAT for Legal Accounting training – making VAT fun.  Having Darren at the helm of the ILFM’s Executive Council means he and I can work hand in hand, bringing this wonderful membership organisation into the modern world of legal finance with support, software research, market research, collaborations, communication forums and incredible benefits for our members.


Talking of membership – are you a member?  Are you getting everything out of your membership?  If you’re not sure if you are benefiting, you are more than welcome to chat with me - I learn so much from talking to new members, past members, potential members – without talking to cashiers, account managers, practice managers and COFAs, how do the team and I know how best to serve you?  Communication is key and the ILFM is a not-for-profit organisation wanting to offer and support all the professionals in legal finance, and professionals you all are.

In conclusion

May I wish you all a very Happy Easter weekend; the weather looks set to be glorious, so let’s enjoy the sun together with our friends and families this weekend before we kick start the next quarter.
