Meet the Team : Michael Parnell

Michael Parnell

I am the firm’s Risk and Compliance Officer and I am responsible for ensuring the firm’s compliance with the following rules and regulations:

  • Solicitors’ Code of Conduct and Accounts Rules
  • Anti-money Laundering Regulations
  • General Data Protection Regulations
  • Conduct of Business Rules

Within my career as a compliance specialist, I have spent 10 years at the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) as a member of the Practice Standards Unit and Fraud & Confidential Intelligence Bureau.

Joined SAS Daniels: 2018

Why I'm no ordinary professional:

I am uniquely placed as a compliance specialist and have seen Solicitors’ work from the perspective of the Regulator as well as in private practice which allows me to assess situations and advise the firm on their processes and compliance matters.
