As a firm that recognises the importance of having experienced in-house counsel working within business, we have boosted our own internal legal team with the appointment of George Petrie.
George joins us from his most recent role as a Compliance Specialist at debt charity StepChange where he worked in the charity’s Risk and Compliance Directorate, monitoring systems and improving compliance.
We are delighted to welcome George, who understands risk in its widest sense and knows how it impacts business positively if properly managed and negatively if left to chance.
Our growing business will benefit enormously from having its own in-house lawyer, based at our Harrogate head office, acting as a supporting resource to our business and our lawyers.
George has a strong background in compliance, both in an FCA regulated context and more widely, and is stepping back into a practising role, where he will help to ensure we have the right systems and processes in place as we expand, particularly as we prepare for further recruitment in 2020.
