Interim Chief Executive

CILEx Regulation
Offices in Wrest Park, Silsoe – flexible working

CILEx Regulation is the independent regulator, under the Legal Services Act 2007, of Chartered Legal Executives and other CILEx members, CILEx Authorised Entities and non-members with Practice Rights in the legal sector. We set and maintain standards in legal education, and in the work and services provided by the individuals and firms we regulate, which continues to expand beyond the original sole purpose of legal executives. Our regulation is proportionate, outcomes focused and risk-based. This allows the people and firms we regulate to take their own approach to delivering legal services in the way they think best, provided that this is in the interests of their clients and the public. We have the CILEx Code of Conduct which sets out the standards of professional and general behaviour we expect of those we regulate. Our regulated members must comply with the Code of Conduct and while we support them with this, we take enforcement action if necessary.
