Newcastle COFA Forum

The Newcastle COFA Forum was successfully launched in July 2014, hosted by Armstrong Watson and Barclays. Hopefully you will have saved the date and we would now like to formally invite you to the second of the regular series.

We are delighted to continue supporting the legal sector in Newcastle by hosting the forum for COFAs to:

  • Meet on a regular basis in informal surroundings
  • Exchange thoughts and ideas on the role of the COFA
  • Share best practice
  • Canvass opinion and report to the SRA on key issues
  • Provide confidential feedback and support to other COFAs on
    • systems to implement
    • how to gain support within firms
    • how to deal with issues

The forum is free to attend and open to a set number of regular attendees, all COFAs within law firms of all sizes in the North East region.

The format has been set by the COFAs that attended the first event. Although hosted by Armstrong Watson and Barclays, it is the COFAs that will control the events and how the forum will be used. Spaces are limited and strictly first come first served.
