“Lodders positive culture and attitude towards its compliance is clearly evident, and this new role will both support and enhance this.”

South West law firm Lodders has appointed Paul Harrison to the new role of Head of Risk & Compliance.

Harrison joins from the Birmingham office of national law firm Irwin Mitchell, where he had been Conduct & Regulatory Assistant for over four years.

His experience combines management roles in private practice, with regulatory experience working as both a Case Worker and Technical Adviser for the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), and for The Law Society of England & Wales for twelve years.

At Lodders, Harrison will oversee and coordinate accreditation and compliance for the firm’s network of offices in Stratford upon Avon, Birmingham, Cheltenham and Henley in Arden.

As Head of Risk & Compliance, he is part of the firm’s senior management team, alongside its directors of HR, marketing, IT and finance, and works alongside the firm’s partner in charge of compliance, Stephen Brignull.

Commenting on the new position and Paul Harrison’s appointment, Lodders’ managing partner, Paul Mourton, said: “In the same way as we recruit the best in breed legal specialists and lawyers, Lodders is committed to having a leadership and senior management team made-up of professionals who are experts in their respective fields. As a leading specialist in the extensive rules and regulations for law firms and legal professionals, Paul brings an impressive pedigree in all aspects of services compliance.

“This latest senior appointment will support Lodders’ sustained growth in revenue, size, locations and staff numbers. We have grown significantly in the last five years in particular and as a large regional firm, we need quality, knowledgeable professionals to support the whole team now and into the future.”

Paul Harrison, who lives in Redditch and will be based at Lodders Stratford upon Avon office, added: “Lodders positive culture and attitude towards its compliance is clearly evident, and this new role will both support and enhance this. I intend to maintain and enhance this, using my knowledge and experience from both private practice and at the SRA.

“Lodders is an ambitious and growing firm built on more than 230-years of providing excellent legal services for, in many instances, generations of clients, and I am looking forward to working as part of the senior team, alongside the partners and specialist legal and sector teams, as well as developing further as a compliance professional.”
