Eversheds Consulting announces two new senior hires in its FS Regulatory Compliance team

  • United Kingdom

    06-10-2015

    Law firm Eversheds has announced that Jeff Jones has been appointed to run the firm’s contract resource offering for in-house compliance teams. Jeff re-joins the firm from Blake Morgan LLP where he was head of HR Operations. Prior to this he held a senior HR role at Eversheds for over a decade, having departed the firm in 2011.

    At the same time, Eversheds Consulting has appointed Mike Booth from Bovill Limited to further develop its Financial Services (FS) Regulatory team. He will focus on asset management, investment adviser and private banking compliance. Mike has a strong regulatory background, having held senior roles within a Big Four consulting practice and a boutique investment management consultancy, which have involved advising companies on FCA regulations and providing consultancy services to investment managers in relation to regulation, fund structuring, governance, risk management and external investigations.

    The development of an investment focussed capability within the FS compliance team is a natural next step in the growth of the FS regulatory practice and will complement Eversheds’ market leading asset management practice. The aim is to develop a single service offering with consulting and legal services being offered together to provide complete regulatory solutions, including a cost-effective yet high quality authorisation and approval service.

    Eversheds Agile has supported clients with contract lawyers since 2011 and it is anticipated that its compliance offering will grow rapidly in what is currently a very active regulatory environment, with many compliance teams under significant resourcing pressure. The number of FS Regulatory Compliance consultants at Eversheds now stands at more than 14 from its inception in 2014, making it one of the firm’s fastest growing teams.

    Commenting on the new hires, David Saunders, Head of Eversheds FS Regulatory Compliance team said:

    “Compliance has never been higher up the Boardroom agenda and these new hires are testament to our commitment to provide clients with the support they need at a time of vast regulatory scrutiny. We welcome Jeff and Mike to the team as we continue to seek market leading personnel to join our consulting group.”
