One of the components of a successful legal practice is having good account management. In running legal firms, there are specific rules on how accounting records should be kept and recorded. This talk will help participants understand financial statements, accounting concepts, and basic finance within the context of a legal practice.

The trainer, Lalitha Ambegei, who has 16 years of experience in accounting, will cover areas such as the essentials of trust accounting, how to keep accounts in accordance with the Solicitors’ Account Rules 1990, and what to look for when assessing the financial statements as well as other accounting essentials.
