A legal cashier is a type of specialized accountant for law firms that are responsible for the accounting and financial functions of a lawyer`s practice, such as recording day-to-day financial transactions and complying with the rules of lawyers` accounts. [1] The term “legal cashier” is commonly used in the legal profession in England and Wales, providing legal insurance services ranging from accounting to accounting and financial services outsourced to your law firm or if you are an individual practitioner. Whether it`s retail clients or law firms, whether you`re involved in crime, in the family or at home, we`re ready to hear from you. Depending on the category of legal work performed, lawyers regularly manage client funds and, due to the risk of fraud or money laundering, they must adhere to a strict code of conduct for lawyers[2] and comply with the rules relating to lawyers` accounts. The accounting software and skills you need to keep track of your accounts are constantly changing. For this reason, our employees participate in ongoing training programs to ensure that they are always up to date with new software and changes in legislation. Every cashier is proficient in a number of accounting software, so you don`t have to worry about training. Although there is no legal requirement for a cashier to have received formal training in England and Wales, the Solicitors Accounts Rules 1998 state that “the person keeping the books must have a full knowledge of the accounting rules and requirements of law firms”.

If you already have a legal cashier, our experienced legal cashier can oversee her work. Read More » Our legal cashiers work remotely within your team.

The Institute of Legal Finance & Management (ILFM) [3] (founded in 1978 as The Institute of Legal Cashiers) issues a formal qualification, the ILFM Diploma, to “provide a thorough and comprehensive and practical knowledge of the maintenance of lawyer`s internal financial records to meet compliance requirements”. Successful candidates receive a certificate, but must complete two years of experience in the accounting department of a law firm before they can obtain associate membership or use the descriptive letters. If you`re a consultant who works for a law firm and need help with your accounts, look no further. In 2007, the University of Chester accredited a workplace training program, “Professional Certificate in Legal Account Management,” which offers an undergraduate program that combines university education with on-the-job learning. However, this is only available to employees of Quill Pinpoint, the employer associated with the program.
