Emma Walker's Profile Picture
Emma is an associate solicitor working with Frances Swaine and Gideon Habel in the regulatory and disciplinary team.  She joined Leigh Day’s international team in December 2012, where she specialised in government and corporate accountability cases.
Since 2015, Emma has assisted Leigh Day’s managing partner, Frances Swaine, in defending allegations made against the firm and three of its solicitors by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), in connection with the Al Sweady inquiry.
In June 2017, following the longest-running hearing in the history of the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal, the firm and its solicitors were cleared of all charges against them.  Emma now works as part of the team responding to the SRA’s appeal of parts of the Tribunal’s decision.
In addition to working on contentious matters, Emma also advises on compliance issues.  Recent work has included designing a number of procedures to achieve regulatory compliance and advising a charity on its obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation.
Emma is a member of the Association of Regulatory & Disciplinary Lawyers and the Law Society’s Risk and Compliance division.
