Introduction to the UK SMCR – training and networking with Allen & Overy

By 16 December 2022 Events, Junior Lawyers No Comments

A FSLA Juniors Lawyers’ training session and networking drinks at 6:00pm at Allen & Overy on Thursday 26 January 2023

The Senior Managers and Certification Regime (SMCR) is now business as usual for over 50,000 financial services firms in the UK. Since its introduction, SMCR market practice has developed significantly, trends have emerged and lessons have been learned by firms as well as their staff. The FCA and the PRA view the SMCR as having been a very successful piece of regulatory change, which is evident in terms of how it runs through in almost all their major regulatory policy initiatives and public commentary.   

On behalf of the Financial Services Lawyers Association (FSLA) and Allen & Overy (A&O), we would like to invite our junior members (students and those with less than 5 years’ relevant experience), and those looking for a refresher, to attend an training session on the SMCR hosted by Sarah Hitchins, Hannah Crisp, David McMenamin and Oliver Palmer. The session will also signpost key employment law issues that regulatory lawyers need to be alive to when advising on the SMCR.

The presentation will be followed by drinks and canapés, giving our junior members the chance to network in an informal and relaxed setting.
