UNI 11871 is aimed at ‘new markets’ (law firms and accountants) by proposing an experienced and recognized model whose success, however, depends (as for all management systems) on the commitment of the members of the firms to compliance with certain organizational principles, including work by processes, assignment of roles and responsibilities, customer orientation, risk management, continuous improvement, planning of activities, external communication “.

“The Cassa Nazionale Forense – declared the President Valter Militi – has strongly supported the UNI technical standard project for law firms throughout Italy, intended not only as a better management tool, also with reference to the risks inherent in our profession, but in particular for the dissemination of a certifiable method for compliance with the requirements applicable to lawyers, including declarative and contributory profiles “.

“With the new UNI standard dedicated to lawyers and chartered accountants – comments the lawyer. Giovanni Lega, President of ASLA – our Association makes available to all the experiences and knowledge of many colleagues and colleagues from both professions. Each firm, in any way established, individually or in association, whether it is already active or newly established, will find in the norm the indications to operate successfully and better manage its risks and opportunities. It is a truly unique tool that ASLA is proud to have brought to completion “.
