Investigations and Audits

Various officers and committes of the Law Society have the authority to at any time order an investigation or audit of your books, records, accounts and transactions to determine whether they are being maintained in accordance with the Uniform Trust Account Rules. If this occurs, you must produce all evidence, records, accounts, files, papers, client files and any explanations which are required for the investigation or audit. Failure to cooperate with an auditor constitutes professional misconduct and may be investigated as such (subsection 9(5)).
