What are your areas of risk and compliance specialism?
I help law firms with their regulatory compliance strategy from strategic risk and compliance audits to ongoing support. I regularly present at industry seminars on areas from GDPR awareness to Money Laundering to horizon scanning the forthcoming SRA’s Looking to the Future reforms.
What’s your background?
Before finding my niche in compliance work I was a solicitor is private practice advising large insurer clients on strategic matters relating to high value personal injury claims. A confident litigator, I successfully lead cases to trial and as far as the Court of Appeal. As skilled negotiator, keeping lines of communication open has been a key strategy to securing favourable outcomes for my clients.
My background equips me to appreciate the challenges faced by my firms, balancing best practice with commerciality.
Qualified as a Solicitor in 2007.
How would you describe your approach to working with clients?
I position myself as a confident and strategic partner for my firms. I listen to their individual needs and concerns and we work together to put in place a clear compliance plan.
