Adele provided us with invaluable expertise throughout the process of applying for Lexcel Accreditation. She gave clear advice as to the most recent changes and requirements of Lexcel and assisted us with the drafting of the necessary documentation.
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.
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.
My experiences in private practice turned me into a “quality nut”, passionate about quality, and good risk management underpins quality. It also underpins Outcomes Focused Regulation, the way the legal profession has been regulated since October 2011.
Good risk management is not just about processes, it’s about creating a healthy culture, leading by example and getting the commitment from everybody within your business from the most senior to the most junior.
Since 2012, I have been advising firms on Alternative Business Structures and helping them create the optimum structure for their future growth.
My testimonials are evidence of my achievements… adding value to your business is my objective.
