Dentons UK and Middle East LLP becomes the latest law firm to join as a corporate member of the Institute of Paralegals

Dentons UK and Middle East LLP has become the latest firm to become a corporate member of the Institute of Paralegals.  Professional corporate membership provides a total end to end solution for the recognition of professional paralegals. The IoP’s professional competency standards are the professions ‘gold standard’. Our Corporate Members can demonstrate professional excellence to clients and other stakeholders. 

Dentons UK and Middle East LLP has a team of paralegals across the region and was recognised for its paralegal development programmes, winning Best Law Firm for Paralegal Development at the National Paralegal Awards 2020. Last year the firm began piloting a legal delivery centre (LDC) with an aim to create a centre of excellence for legal/administrative workflows and repeatable tasks. In Dentons' Milton Keynes office, there is a team of real estate paralegals known as ParaShoot.  This team represents a broad spectrum of clients and, as well as managing its own caseload, assists solicitors with projects and more complex transactions.

Karen Peart, service delivery manager in Real Estate at Dentons Milton Keynes, said, "Working with the Institute of Paralegals is particularly important as they are well placed to shape and guide the business and share best practices. We are excited to use the IOP professional standards as a benchmark and review our own framework in the light of these. We are delighted to collaborate, innovate and lead in this space alongside the IOP."

Neil Newman, Director of Development and Innovation, commented, “We are delighted to welcome Dentons as our latest corporate member.  We are broadening our relationships to support business as well as aiming to expand our membership. Our corporate members provide the employer engagement needed in order to effectively ensure that professional Paralegals are trained to meet the needs of employers and end users.
