Victoria Simpson
Victoria SimpsonDirector
I have over 25 years experience in the legal sector, having commenced employment following college at a trade union firm where I worked my way up through the ranks and have since worked for top city ‘magic circle’ firms.

This has given me a wealth of experience and an opportunity to build on my knowledge. Most recently I have been Head of Compliance for a 23 office Law Firm in London and the South Coast. Having been Head of Compliance for over 400 staff and 23 involves meticulous organisation and I thrive on resolving issues and queries.

My approach is to train and retain employees empowering them to use their skill set and achieve their individual goals and those of the company. With experience of accreditations such as Lexcel, I am available to assist to ensure you obtain and retain any accreditations.

I can assist from with all processes and offer bespoke consultancy for your requirements and best practice.

My social activities include spending time with my husband and family, travelling, socialising, singing and pub quizzes.
