Emsleys appoints regulatory compliance specialist

Emsleys Solicitors has appointed Elaine Robinson as Regulatory Risk and Compliance Officer. A qualified solicitor, SQM Auditor and accredited Lexcel Consultant and Assessor, Elaine brings more than 10 years of experience in regulation and compliance.

Elaine’s role will focus on compliance across the firm including client care, equality & diversity, supervisory requirements and risk management – as well as fostering a culture of compliance across the business.
