Jaunita Gobby, director of Legal Eye: Legal Eye prides itself in the added value services we provide to our clients

We are delighted to announce the appointment of two new compliance associates; Stella Duncan and Janine Betts which brings the Legal Eye team to a total of 22 consultants.

Stella is a highly experienced Business Development and Client Relationship Manager having worked for 14 years in the conveyancing department of a large practice of solicitors. She was instrumental in the firm becoming one of the first practices to achieve LEXCEL accreditation and CQS membership.  Previously Stella worked for corporates such as Birmingham Midshires and Marks and Spencer Financial Services.

Stella brings to her role a working knowledge of compliance and a passionate customer service ethic gained from her extensive experience. Stella says “I am delighted to join the exceptional Legal Eye team, which gives me the opportunity to use my extensive knowledge and experience to help legal firms across the North.”

Cornwall-based Janine has worked in the legal property sector for the last 7 years. During this time Janine worked in various senior roles for the largest conveyancer in the UK through a period of challenging regulatory changes such as becoming the first Alternative Business Structure (ABS) and the introduction (and demise) of Home Information Packs.  Further experience has been gained in panel management where lawyer relationship and compliance was key to her role.

Commenting on her appointment Janine says “I am looking forward to making Legal Eye compliance services even more accessible in the South West

Jaunita Gobby, Director of Legal Eye said:

“Stella and Janine have both come highly recommended to us.  In addition to our expertise in compliance Legal Eye prides itself in the added value services we provide to our clients. This is backed up by our latest customer satisfaction results which show that 98% of our customers are satisfied and 9 out of 10 would actively recommend us.”

Joint (ad)ventures in the legal sector

Nigel Wallis lo res

We all know that nothing in life is certain. As the actor, director and philosopher Clint Eastwood once said: “If you want a guarantee, buy a toaster.” He also said he’d tried being reasonable and didn’t like it. They should teach this kind of philosophy in law school. One thing in life is reasonably certain though. If you’re a law firm worth your salt, at some point you will be approached by another entity (most probably a work introducer) with a whizzy idea to ‘partner’ with you to ‘help you accelerate your growth’. In commercial speak this means, ‘we’d like to keep feeding you work but we’d also like to share in your profits’. The arrangement may be pitched to you as a joint venture – a win-win no less.
