As part of her role, George ensures the firm's accreditations and panel memberships are maintained. These include Lexcel (the Law Society's Quality Mark) and the Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme.  She works closely with the Directors to review and develop policies and procedures that ensure the firm continually improves its performance and achieves consistently high standards of service.  As the firm's Equality & Diversity Representative, she also provides equality and diversity awareness training to all our staff.

Finally, George supports our Solicitors, Chartered Legal Executives and other legal advisers to meet the requirements of the SRA and other regulators in relation to learning and development. All Solicitors, Chartered Legal Executives and some non-qualified legal advisers are required to complete training each year that meets the requirements of one or more regulatory bodies.
