Davina Hodgkiss

Compliance Manager

Davina is a Chartered Legal Executive who qualified in 2002.

After specialising in Domestic Violence and Children Act matters, Davina moved on to deal with other family matters including Divorce and Financial Disputes with a specific emphasis on Cohabitation Disputes. This led to her developing an interest in civil litigation, and later to undertaking a Diploma in Civil Litigation in 2005.

In her more recent career, Davina has focused on projects relating to working practices, regulation and compliance, credit control and risk management. She has worked at a mixture of small and large regional law firms.

Davina now deals with all our regulation and compliance matters and holds the various positions of responsibility that are required by our regulator, the Solicitor’s Regulation Authority (SRA). This includes the roles of Designated Complaints Handler, Money Laundering Officer and Compliance Manager for Legal Practice (COLP). As well as assisting the firm with day to day HR issues, Davina also manages our Basingstoke Branch and heads up the Team which deals with billing and credit control.
