Legal Futures Associate DAS Group has announced the appointment of Paul Timmins as chief operating officer (COO).

The role of COO is a newly created position within the group and is tasked with a wide range of responsibilities to meet the requirement that the operations of the fast-growing nature of the group respond to the ever-increasing needs of the market. 

DAS Group chief executive Paul Asplin said: “The creation of this very senior position is a reflection on the remarkable growth that the group has achieved over the years.

“Paul will be working directly with me in a number of areas, especially those related to new projects. The high level nature of this appointment has meant that Paul has also been appointed to the board as a director.”

Paul Timmins joined DAS in 2008 as head of compliance and risk management, later becoming head of risk and HR.

Mr Timmins said: “I’m delighted to be the first COO of the DAS Group and am already working on very interesting projects that will aid our continued strong growth.”

The requirement for solicitors to behave ethically in modern legal practice is more relevant than ever. Solicitors are still held in fairly high regard by the public, although that esteem is on the wane according to last year’s Trusted Professions poll by Ipsos Mori. Lawyers are less trusted than teachers and doctors but at least we prevail over accountants and bankers. We still hold a position of trust but we must work to hold that position. The current Solicitors Regulation Authority proposals to revise the Handbook are evidence that work still needs to be done.
