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.”

Lawyers must now draw on the data and drive change

Chris Marston 2014

The results from this year’s legal services consumer tracker survey make for interesting reading. In its sixth year, the research finds that a firm’s reputation continues to grow in importance, holding its top slot as the number one factor influencing choice of lawyer, with price remaining a strong second, reflected in a shift towards higher numbers of fixed-fee transactions. Alongside, it reports that trust in lawyers has declined to 42%, from 47% in 2012. It’s useful information as far as it goes, but what is the sector going to do with it?
