Sharon Lumley

Compliance Officer

Career History

I am new to the Neves team and come from a Recruitment / HR background. In 2015, I joined a firm of solicitors to take on a new role for me and for the firm! I developed a new compliance programme along with a great relationship with the staff – including the ones at the top! After a year of working at the main high street office ensuring the firm was compliant with professional rules and other legal obligations, I was promoted to Compliance Officer. Essentially, this meant I took on greater responsibility, relieving the fee earners to do just that – earn fees!

I joined Neves in May 2018 and am thrilled to be part of the team.

Recent Cases

My role covers file reviews, anti-money laundering queries, source of funds checks, compliance training for all new starters and reviewing/updating all the policies and procedures etc.

What makes me human

Most of my spare time is filled by my beautiful family, specifically my adorable granddaughters but of course, there are times when I’d love to be on a tropical island, far from baby-sitting requests and dirty washing! I enjoy travelling, eating out and also entertaining at home. I like all kinds of music and go to see and support local bands, the top of my list is the Skasouls, as my husband is the drummer!

I love a good laugh and nothing beats combining this with a glass of wine (or bottle!) in the sun, with loved ones. I’m great fun to be around, if I do say so myself and this is my spiel, I absolutely do!
