Griffiths Allen - Stamp Duty Adviserswww.griffithsallen.co.uk

There have been so many amendments to the Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) legislation over the last few years that it can be very difficult to keep up with the constant change. Griffiths Allen specialise in providing SDLT advice and compliance services to the conveyancing profession and work on a fixed fee basis to give the conveyancer and their clients certainty on fees at the very outset of the transaction.  The services we offer help those professionals that perhaps need, sign posting towards the correct legislation, require a second opinion on a matter they have not dealt with in a while, or need help with a small part of a much larger transaction to enable them to file the required return with HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) correctly. We also specialise in SDLT planning and advisory projects across both residential and commercial sectors.  We are excited to be exhibiting at the LFS Conference, so why not come and chat to us about how we can work together and pick up a little chocolate treat at the same time.

Conscious Solutionswww.conscious.co.uk

A message from David Gilroy :-

Over the years, we have become very picky about which events we sponsor, but LFS has remained a firm favourite of ours.

But why is that? For one, it’s a specialist conference and awards ceremony for conveyancers, which means that the talks are more niche and focussed, and the awards concentrate on everyone in the same sector of law – making it a much more intimate evening.

As conference stream organisers & sponsors, we will be offering a selection of relevant talks which will help push your conveyancing firm in the right direction as you embark on the future of digital marketing and client satisfaction.

I’ll kick off the morning with a talk on brand, marketing and employees; your brand is what people say about you when you’re not in the room after all. Find out how you can define your image.

Rich Dibbins, Digital Strategy Consultant from Conscious Solutions, will be discussing the importance of a responsive, updated website to maintain your professional brand.

Jonathan Winchester from Shopper Anonymous will join us to discuss their recent mystery shopper survey and what they learnt – what level of customer service are law firms really providing and what could your firm be doing better to get new business?

Clare Fanner from Find Get Grow will also be joining us, and will discuss how your firm’s marketing team can achieve more on a smaller budget and limited resources. In this engaging session, Clare will outline how you can get better results from your marketing by having a more focused approach and will share with you some practical tips and ideas that can be quickly and easily implemented.

Clare Yates from TM Group will be targeting relations with estate agents. How do you sort out the muddle and mess of referrals from estate agents? This session will tell you just how to go about it. Not one to be missed.

Another speaker to look out for is consultant, Claire Merrick. Her talk will focus on the road to resilience; as a specialist in coaching fee earners and salary and equity partners across the legal sector, this talk is worth a visit.

We’re very excited to be taking part in this event, and are really pleased with the variety of speakers we have to offer! We hope to see you there.
