Risk and Compliance

Switalskis Solicitors Ltd
49 Ropergate

Steve has worked in the legal sector for over 30 years.  His career spans in-house and private practice roles.  In Steve’s current role, he leads all risk and compliance across the firm.  His role includes:

  • Compliance Officer for Legal Practice (COLP)
  • Head of Legal Practice (HOLP)


Steve has a calm and measured approach to the wide-ranging role he provides for the firm. He instils confidence in his fellow directors and colleagues, readily supporting them in their own roles where required, whether that be client facing or corporate management.


Following legal and management roles in social care and education in local government (in positions across West Yorkshire and Essex), Steve moved into private practice in 2005. There he specialised in child care law, becoming an accredited Law Society Children Panel specialist and then a solicitor advocate. Steve has since stepped away from his client facing role to focus upon and develop his regulatory duties as COLP/HOLP, enhancing the risk and compliance function for Switalskis.

"Since becoming a partner, director and then taking the lead in risk and compliance for Switalskis, I have seen the firm grow quickly and substantially. During this time, we have dealt with many challenges and seen significant change. I am proud to have held a key role in this journey and to continue to play an instrumental part in our vision to be a great place to work, to achieve sustainable profitability and provide all clients with excellent service.."
