I qualified as a solicitor in 1977 and have many years of experience setting up quality, compliance and risk management systems. As risk manager, client care and managing partner of a city centre practice in Manchester I successfully took the firm through the Franchise process, Investors in People and Lexcel accreditations.
Since January 2007 I have been advising firms on a national basis on all aspects of quality, professional compliance and risk management. This has helped many of my clients manage their operational risk to achieve the lowest possible professional indemnity cover. Since 2012, I have been advising firms on Alternative Business Structures and helping them create the optimum structure for their future growth.
Over the years, I have lectured widely to the profession and contributed to various risk management publications. I have worked as a consultant with the Law Society’s Risk and Compliance Service and I am an accredited Law Society Lexcel Consultant. I also help those firms that wish to become members of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme
