Andy Donovan, Founder, Compliance Office

Andy is a self-confessed SRA compliance geek. He literally helped write the book(s) on SRA compliance. While working at the SRA Andy contributed to the drafting of aspects of the SRA Code of Conduct 2009 as well as the SRA Handbook 2011. Andy also provided training to SRA staff and the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal on a range of topics including alternative business structures (ABSs). Seeing a need in the market for a simpler set of compliance tools and keen to share knowledge more widely, Andy left the SRA in 2014 to establish the Compliance Office. Since then he has overseen the development of the Compliance Office in the Cloud platform which offers solicitors templates, CPD tracking, risk registers, e-learning and more all in one place. Andy also continues to offer SRA compliance consultancy services to maintain practical hands on knowledge, including ABS and traditional law firm applications, health checks and retainer support.
