A leading Island law firm has expanded its regulatory and compliance services team.
The appointments further strengthen the breadth of expert specialisms provided by DQ Advocates.
The Douglas-based practice says it will enhance its ability to deliver the highest level of professionalism and advice to both its local and international clients.
Mike Batey, Tess Bates and Ian Bancroft have come in as consultants - earlier this year Island advocate Dawn Jones also joined DQ as a consultant.
Mike says: "The work I have undertaken in recent years in financial services has principally involved product and market development, technical support and corporate governance.
"Teaming up with DQ is a logical extension of our long-term working relationship.
"I've been particularly attracted by the variety of work, the excellent client base and the chance to expand my breadth of experience with such a well-respected professional services firm."
