Su Turley

Head of Operations

Su manages our Operations Team overseeing everything non-legal, including human resources, compliance, accreditations, premises, information technology and accounts. She is also part of our Management Committee and plays a major role in driving our strategy and upholding our values and commitment to you, our clients.

With 20 years specialising in legal practice management, Su keeps Longmores running smoothly, leaving our lawyers to focus on what they do best – providing bespoke, high quality legal advice.

 

Career

Su studied Business at the Open University, graduating in 1988. She then undertook her CIPD qualification, gaining valuable HR and people management skills.

Su started her professional career in general office and HR management roles. She moved into legal practice management in 2000 when she saw an advert for a Practice Manager for a criminal defence firm in London.

During her time at this firm she discovered the varied world of legal operations, enjoying that no two days were ever the same and that there’s always room to help a firm grow and develop.

Although overseeing criminal defence work was fascinating, Su moved on in 2004 to a local firm that offered a wider variety of practice areas and became their CEO. In 2013, she joined Longmores as Practice Manager, and has been the Head of Operations since 2018.

  • Compliance
  • Accreditations and submissions
  • Premises
  • Information technology

As part of our Management Committee, she is also instrumental in developing our strategic objectives and values and fulfilling our purpose, which is principally to help you in every aspect of your personal or business life.

Personal interests

From short city breaks to a couple of weeks relaxation in the Caribbean, she is always looking forward to the next trip, so ask Su where she plans to go next.
