Rollits names new Compliance Officer

Law firm Rollits has appointed David Richardson to fill a newly-created role as Compliance Officer. A qualified solicitor, David worked for a prominent Newcastle-based personal injury firm for almost 20 years, specialising in cases which included disputed liability, alleged fraud RTA and employer and public liability.

He moved into an IT development manager role in 2016 and became compliance officer of the firm’s medical agency in 2018, handling issues around Ministry of Justice guidelines, complaints, data protection matters and medical expert panel management.

At Rollits, David will work across the firm’s offices in Hull and York as a member of the firm’s Operations Team, which focuses on all operational matters including risk management. He will take responsibility for monitoring the firm’s compliance with regulations and internal policies to ensure they are up to date with the relevant laws and for educating partners and staff on compliance regulations and the impact of non-compliance.

A graduate of the University of Northumbria, where he also completed his Legal Practice Course, David enjoys spending time with his family as well as travel, cooking, eating out and watching Newcastle United and Barcelona.

David said: “Compliance is the cornerstone of a reputable and sustainable legal practice and the creation of this new role highlights how seriously the firm takes its obligations to ensure that legal and ethical standards are upheld and risks are identified and managed.”
