SSQ adds new compliance offering
This new offering sits within SSQ’s in-house team in the UK and supports new and existing clients in the UK and internationally, from a London base.
SSQ has recruited lawyers for clients across financial services and commerce and industry for over eight years. By building its network and expertise across both legal and compliance, SSQ has the ability to offer a more complete and holistic service, helping clients build strong in-house legal and compliance teams which are inextricably linked.
Ed joins SSQ from a boutique recruitment consultancy. He specialises in placing lawyers and regulatory professionals into compliance and quasi-legal/compliance positions at all levels of seniority for leading asset managers and investment banks in the UK and internationally.
Laila Martin co-leads SSQ’s UK in-house team and on the addition of this new service said,
“Mitigating against regulatory risk has become increasingly important for businesses over the last few years, as has the demand from clients for qualified lawyers to take up these challenges. In addition, more and more qualified lawyers are making the transition to a career in compliance, and having a consultant who has a specific understanding of the skills required, alongside the strong international network that SSQ has built, will give clients access to talent that they could not find elsewhere.”
