A man in the know: Introducing Eddie Goldsmith as King Arthur at latest Law Gazette roundtable
Earlier this week a group of residential conveyancing professionals including our own senior partner Edward Goldsmith gathered for the fourth Gazette roundtable to discuss the latest development in the housing market as well as looking at ways to raise industry standards.
The debate at the conveyancing roundtable was shaped by the recent upturn in activity; enquiries, transactions and product innovation have all enjoyed a marked improvement since the turn of the year. The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) even declared last week ‘the very worst may be over’.
Drawing on his 30 years’ experience Eddie, as always, proved an invaluable resource to the debate rightly highlighting the role of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) in maintaining the highest standards of practice.
He also talks of the importance of development in order to continue to uphold client care provisions in modern day conveyancing.
Building on this theme Eddie pointed out that “Generation Y” expect a 21st century service accessible through the internet.
He concluded that conveyancers should be single minded about their business models and service offering.
