Ivor Donn

Finance Director

Experience in years:

30 years


Ivor qualified as a Chartered Certified Accountant in 1991 and was made a Fellow of the Association in 1997. He worked for a large international law firm for over 13 years and was Director of Finance for their high volume division for the last 3 years of that job. He then worked for 2 years as deputy to the Director of Finance at Sheffield Hallam University before joining Wake Smith as Director of Finance in January 2006.

Main areas of work:

His role is to manage the finances of the practice and to ensure that the firm meets its regulatory obligations in terms of its clients. Ivor is responsible for strategic operational & commercial matters within the firm and in ensuring that the firm remains financially strong in order to continue to be able to invest in its staff, training, infrastructure and IT. Ivor chairs the firm’s Management Board which is responsible for the smooth running of the practice and in managing the risks associated with operating a law firm in an ever changing environment.

Out of work:

Ivor enjoys good food and drink, with a decent malt scotch whisky his favourite tipple. He enjoys spending time with his family on foreign holidays, whilst laying on a sun-lounger, sipping a cocktail and listening to his ageing iPod. Sheffield United is another of his loves but enjoyment can never really be guaranteed with the Blades!!
