Rob Hailstone, an ex-residential property conveyancer, with over 30 years’ experience, formed the Bold Legal Group (BLG) in 2010.

With the implementation of the Legal Services Act 2007, a new SRA Handbook and many other issues to deal with, he realised that many law firms would need an extra ‘pair of eyes’ to make sure they were kept fully informed and up to date with issues such as:

  • Professional Indemnity Insurance
  • The possible privatisation of the Land Registry
  • Outcome Focused Regulation
  • Mortgage/Identity Fraud
  • Money Laundering
  • SRA Fraud/Scam Alerts
  • Law Society Practice Notes
  • Alternative Business Structures
  • Lender Panel Requirements
  • The Conveyancing Quality Scheme
  • Changes to Chancel Repair Liability
  • Lawyer Checker
  • Lender Exchange
  • Law Society Conveyancing Portal (Veyo)

Rob has an extensive number of contacts in the legal profession, thereby, making sure that his members are kept as fully informed as is possible with all relevant changes that will affect and have an impact of the way they work, advise their clients and manage and run their firms. Unlike other legal networks BLG members work together, they share experiences, problems, solutions and successes. They help fight each other’s corner if necessary. Our main aim is to empower BLG members to confidently embrace and exploit the new opportunities that the changing legal landscape creates and to ensure that consumers have continued access to good efficient legal advice and help throughout England and Wales.
