Peer Review Webinars 

There has been a lot of Peer Review activity recently and it is likely that you will know at least one local firm who have received an assessment. Quite why the LAA have revived, in a somewhat “cut down” version, an audit tool which they determined was only for use as a “risk management tool”, […]

International Blue 

A New Year and something great and new from the Manics. What more could you ask for? UPDATE I jumped the gun – here is the official video.
