Under her leadership, the Panel has gone from strength to strength, and she leaves it as a major and credible source of advice and direction in the sector. She has been instrumental in promoting our shared mission of ensuring legal services work better for society by ensuring the interests of consumers are put right at the heart of legal services regulation while preserving with great energy the Panel’s independence.”
