“I am delighted to congratulate Ms Bellamy, Ms Lovell and Dr Martin on their appointments to the Office for Legal Complaints (OLC).
I offer my sincere congratulations to all three Board Members as I know their experiences in many diverse areas will immensely benefit the working of the OLC, the Legal Ombudsman (LeO) and the interest of the consumer of legal services.
In taking up her new role, Dr Martin will step down from her position as Chair of the Legal Services Consumer Panel. I thank her for all her hard work to make sure that the interests of consumers are put right at the heart of legal services regulation.
I would also like to thank the outgoing members for their invaluable contribution to the ongoing development of the Legal Ombudsman.”
