Alison is a solicitor and a Licensed Conveyancer, and has been with the Countrywide Group (now part of Connells) for 20 years in both operational and compliance roles.
Since 2005, she has been the Legal and Compliance Director of the Conveyancing Division and this fast-paced volume environment always requires a commercial & practical approach to identify key risks and solutions.
She was a founder member of the CA and finds it helpful to have a safe haven to discuss new cases and find solutions for the various technical, compliance, AML and lender issues that arise and which are common to all practices. The CA also provides an opportunity to get beyond the sales talk and find out which of the many products and services aimed at the conveyancing market really work for the members and are making a difference.
The disparate commercial interests are always respected but the CA is united in their aim of finding the best ways to improve both the service for their clients and own productivity. The CA is a great resource for this.
