Julia is our Risk and Compliance Director.
She helps the firm navigate the professional and regulatory rules to which it is subject. She brings considerable experience to this role, but also patience and good humour. Knowing that the firm has a strong culture around Risk and Compliance gives both the firm and clients confidence and peace of mind. The Risk and Compliance team are focussed on making every part of the business better.
She has been a solicitor for over 30 years, initially working at Richards Butler (now Reed Smith) in the City of London before taking a career break to raise a family.
Julia then spent 15 years in Legal Practice Management, with responsibility for maintaining various Law Society quality accreditations for the organisations she worked with, before joining us in 2018.
Julia is a Lead Lexcel Assessor for the Law Society and is therefore able to offer a unique insight into both sides of the auditing process. She continues to carry out Lexcel assessments on firms of different sizes and was chosen by the Law Society to conduct pilot assessments for their Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS).
