Forte’s Regulatory Compliance Research Project


Forte Markets is running a research initiative exploring the regulatory landscape of law firms and how LawTech can help improve it. Phase I of this exercise, in collaboration with the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), is to dive into the regulatory landscape for law firms in England & Wales.  Looking at the compliance function and aiming to identify common pain points.  Subsequent phases will cover US, UAE amongst other key jurisdictions to help provide a global view of the compliance space for law firms.


We are currently looking to liaise directly with compliance officers (COLPs and COFAs) to understand the current regulatory processes and procedures of law firms and identify pain points where technology can help.

We aim to keep your involvement and time commitment to a minimum, knowing all our participants are extremely busy we aim not to  take up more than  3/4 hours worth of input over the next few months.
