Jane takes on role as Practice Manager (and Data Protection Officer)

May 27, 2018 | ,

The firm is delighted to announce the arrival of Jane Bosher as our new Practice Manager in succession to Nick Daubney, the new Mayor of King’s Lynn.

Jane, who is married to our Head of Property, Colin Bosher, has previously worked in industry and will bring a fresh approach to Law Firm Management. Originally from the Home Counties, Jane and Colin moved to Swaffham just over three years ago and have now firmly settled into West Norfolk life. Jane said “married to Colin I have of course known for a long time what goes on in law firms and what makes them successful and I am now really looking forward to help move Hawkins Ryan forwards. There is huge potential within the firm and I am very determined to help unlock that potential for the benefit of clients as well as for the staff and partners at Hawkins Ryan.”

Paul Sheerin, senior partner of the firm, added “Jane joins us at a very exciting time and her experience of business and particularly her flair for business development and marketing will be key to our continued success and our future development as we move into our 100th year of business in West Norfolk”.

Jane will also assume the role of Data Protection Officer under the new GDPR rules which came into force on 25 May 2018. In relation to this new responsibility, Jane commented “It is really encouraging that the partners have got to grips with the new GDPR regime. The issues of data protection and the right to privacy will continue to evolve over the next few years. Few businesses really appear to understand what it is all about hence the masses of emails which have been flowing into peoples’ inboxes trying to obtain consent for retaining details of customers on their systems. Little do they seem to realise that by sending out such emails, they are already breaching the new regulations!”

Hawkins Ryan has been working with its partners, Brigantia and Uptech to formulate new policies which promote good practice across the firm as well as complying with the new regulations – work which will continue for months and years ahead.
