Philip Yelland is Director of Regulation at the Law Society of Scotland. He has held that post since 2006. He originally joined the Society in March 1990 and led the Complaints Team for a number of years. Prior to that he was a solicitor in private practice for five years.
His current remit involves overseeing the work of the Complaints Investigation Team, liaison with the Scottish Legal Complaints Commission, Financial Compliance and Interventions Teams. He also acts as Secretary to the new Regulatory Committee and is leading the project which will see the Society apply to become an Approved Regulator of Licensed Providers (Alternate Business Structures).
Away from work, he is keen on sport both participating and spectating.
