Former British Ambassador Quinton Quayle has been named as the new chair of ILEX Professional Standards (IPS), the regulator for Chartered Legal Executive lawyers and members of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx).
Quinton said: "I am delighted to be taking up the Chair of IPS in June as it moves into an exciting new period in its development. IPS has chalked up some impressive achievements under Alan Kershaw who has chaired the board with distinction over the past seven years. I look forward to working with other members of the IPS board, with the IPS executive and with CILEx to build on the good progress that has been made."
Since retiring from the Diplomatic Service, Quinton has specialised in self-regulation. He sits on the Governing Council of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland (ICAS) and the Regulation Board of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). He is also a member of the Queen's Counsel Appointments Panel and the HS2 Exceptional Hardship Panel.
Quinton will oversee the work of IPS as it regulates specialist legal businesses and legal professionals authorised for the new suite of practice rights. He will take up post on 1 June 2015 following the conclusion of Alan Kershaw’s term of office.
