Clinical negligence in-house lawyer Linda Lee has been voted in as the Law Society’s next deputy vice president, it was announced today (15 April).
Lee, an in-house lawyer at Action Against Medical Accidents, is currently chair of the Law Society’s legal affairs and policy board.
Andrew Holroyd, Law Society president, said: “Linda's expertise and wide experience will help to ensure that the Law Society is a modern, effective body that represents the needs of all solicitors in England and Wales and abroad.”
She will take up her post in July when vice president Paul Marsh takes over from Holroyd. Former Beachcroft managing partner Bob Heslett will step up to become vice president.
Lee said she hopes she can contribute to meeting the expectations of solicitors.
“I see the Law Society as an integral support for members developing their practices and careers,” said Lee. “Also for our work to succeed we must represent all parts of our diverse profession effectively to government and the regulator.”
