Virginia Bevan joined Thompson Smith and Puxon in April 2019 as Head of Client Services and Compliance. TSP is committed to providing a high quality service to its clients and Virginia, as her title suggests, is responsible for ensuring that this is the case, as well as dealing with any concerns that clients may have.
The compliance part of Virginia’s role covers a number of areas including ensuring TSP complies with the many regulatory and statutory duties that come with being a firm of solicitors, including our Anti-Money Laundering responsibilities. She is also responsible for the maintenance of the firm’s Law Society accreditations, Lexcel and the Conveyancing Quality Scheme.
Virginia began her career in Legal Finance over 20 years ago. Until recently her career grew primarily in City-based law firms, her roles merging organically into the area of compliance the higher she climbed. After becoming a mother in 2010, Virginia spent her early parenting years running a Legal Finance consultancy business, advising on both operational and compliance issues. This enabled her to balance both career and parenthood.
In recent years, due to business requirements shifting to place an increasingly heavy onus on compliance, Virginia’s career progression has focussed on areas of expertise such as Anti- Money Laundering and legal compliance across the board.
Virginia says “TSP is extremely well known locally, and the opportunity to become part of a local firm who emanate City professionalism is one I am delighted to be enjoying. The fact that TSP has sought to move this role into its own specialist department speaks volumes for the firm’s dedicated approach to compliance.”
“I am looking forward to contributing further to what is already an exceptional standard of service, enabling the Firm to continue its journey with confidence from a compliance perspective.”
Virginia is a Dementia Friend, an Alzheimer’s Society scheme which aims to raise awareness of what it’s like to live with dementia and how people living with it can be helped. Find out more about the scheme and how TSP is involved here.
