Tell us a bit about your working style and other interests
There is nothing more rewarding than being challenged and finding practical solutions for a client. Hitting the ground running, being pro-active, managing clients’ expectations and understanding the needs of the business are ‘must have’ ingredients to succeed in an in-house environment. Outside life as an in-house lawyer, I play a lot of sports and love learning about different cultures.
With over 11 years’ experience as a professional interim lawyer, Halebury offers me a platform to take my career to a new level and develop my portfolio as part of a team of experienced in-house lawyers.
