    Our client are looking to appoint their first In-House Legal Counsel. This will be a wide-ranging role that will support the leadership team , across corporate Legal, Risk and Compliance.

    Whilst the organisation is relatively small there can be a lot of negotiation back and forth on risk and governance issues with operations and clients. To have someone in-house who could drive and own the processes along with liaising with external solicitors, is likely to have a positive impact from a timescales and cost perspective.

    Where this individual could also take on further ownership of risk and compliance from a legal perspective such as AML reporting, that would also lead to increased efficiency and transparency.
