How can I help you?

I’m the Head of Risk and Compliance. I like to solve problems which occasionally occur on your behalf and welcome the chance to look at the issues to see if we can find a solution together. On the rare occasions when we have made a mistake, I’ll do my very best to put things right.

A little about me

It’s my job to make our law firm the best it can be. We’re honoured to provide solutions for clients through the use of law whilst we understand you deserve excellent service. It’s a privilege through my role to help make a positive difference in all that we do.

My experience

I qualified as a solicitor in 1974 and joined Jackson Lees in 1975. I was awarded an OBE for services to publicly funded Legal Work in Liverpool in June 2003 and a CBE for services to Administration of Justice in December 2008. I’m an Honorary Fellow of Liverpool John Moores University and was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from Nottingham University in 2009.

I was President of Liverpool Law Society from 1993 to 1994 and Chair of the Standards Board of the Law Society of England & Wales from 2002 to 2005. I was elected President of the Law Society of England & Wales and led my profession from 2007 to 2008.

This experience helps me make the right decisions in carrying out my role.
