Proactive Management Based Regulation (PMBR) aims to improve the “ethical infrastructure” of law firms by implementing policies and procedures that proactively address underlying issues and lawyer behaviors that can lead to client complaints.
PMBR has been an active topic among legal regulators for the last 5 years. Much work and discussion has been undertaken to understand what it can mean, and what the potential upsides are to regulators adopting PMBR principles.
Standpoint’s approach has been to find ways to compliment these discussions and efforts by building tools and frameworks to assist in implementing PMBR related initiatives.
Our approach focuses on:
- outcomes based objectives,
- a structured means to perform lightweight self-assessments, and,
- an evidence-based analytics and reporting system to identify emerging challenges and strategically allocate organizational resources to address them.
