Clarke Willmott has appointed three new staff for its risk and compliance team.
Natalie Maloney will take on a newly created role as head of onboarding, Susan Richardson joins as best practice manager and Charlotte Murray-Kohter has been appointed risk solicitor to support the firm’s ongoing growth.
Heading a team of eight, Natalie Maloney, previously a partner working in litigation and compliance, will help improve onboarding processes including anti-money laundering. She will also provide support to fee earners, enabling them to provide a full and seamless service to clients.
Susan will offer guidance and practical assistance in helping support junior members of the teams. She will liaise closely with HR and Knowledge Services Teams to support the existing wellbeing, training and development programmes.
Charlotte will support Jennifer O’Donnell, partner and director of Risk and Best Practice, as another point of contact for fee earners to deal with regulatory and legal queries. Previously a commercial property solicitor, Charlotte will work across all of the firm’s seven regional offices.
Jennifer O’Donnell said: “I am really excited to be expanding our team and supporting the organic growth of the business. Providing our services to the fee earners is vital in allowing them to focus on representing clients and ultimately securing the best results for them.
“Our team is passionate about being pro-active, not just providing answers to questions but actually getting involved and giving practical help.”
