Legal Eye announced today that two new Associates have joined the team.  Lawyer and businessman Robin Marcus and Rhonda Hales, Account and Business Development Executive. The appointment follows recent expansion at Legal Eye, which advises legal practices on compliance and risk management.

In their new roles Robin and Rhonda will strengthen Legal Eye’s compliance offering. Robin, a solicitor for 25 years, is an expert in best practice. He personally founded, grew and sold two profitable legal services companies. Most recently he cofounded Easier2Move, one of the first companies to enter the online conveyencing market, which was sold to MyHomeMove in 2010 after a period of significant growth. Prior to this Robin Marcus was a partner at Marcus Baum Solicitors, sold in 2006.

Rhonda has enjoyed a successful 12 year career in account management and business development, the last 7 of which have been in the legal sector working with all sizes of law firms.

As a Regional Manager in a private search company, Rhonda has worked closely with a number of firms setting up bespoke systems to streamline their internal processes.  A customer focused consultative approach has enabled Rhonda to add value to her client’s businesses.

Commenting on his appointment, Robin Marcus said: “It is a common misconception that compliance is a burden to law firms, slowing down processes and eating into profit margins. It is my belief that, when managed correctly, compliance can lead to increased profitability and the acquisition of new clients. I look forward to the challenge of working with Legal Eye and its clients to advise on best practice and compliance, ultimately helping these law firms become more effective and more profitable.”

Rhonda Hales said: “From my experience of working with law firms, I recognise the importance of compliance, best practice and risk management. I am looking forward to working with the team at Legal Eye, helping firms with their compliance needs.”

Jaunita Gobby, Director of Legal Eye, said: “The legal and regulatory framework in which law firms operate is a complex one. As Legal Eye goes from strength to strength, the appointment of Robin and Rhonda means we offer our own clients the very best advice available.”

GDPR and the rise of ‘datanapping’ – the new threat to the pockets of law firms

Nigel Wright

You’ve heard about ransomware – a hacker infiltrates your IT systems, locking them down until you pay a ransom. Some studies now estimate that over 50% of businesses have experienced this type of attack in the last year, and it’s particularly prevalent within the legal sector. Previously, firms could protect themselves by having a solid disaster recovery plan in place to ensure they can get back up and running in the event of a disruption. However, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – the new EU-wide regime which comes in effect on 25 May 2018, irrespective of Brexit – means that this approach alone is no longer adequate and security measures must be strengthened to prevent attacks.
