About

"I started Law Career Plus to provide specialist career support for lawyers. It's the resource I wish I had when I made my career moves as a lawyer, both within practice and then changing career path away from the profession. From many conversations with other ambitious lawyers over the last 20+ years it's clear others have a similar need."

MY CAREER STORY

I have extensive business experience in large corporates and the legal profession. I initially spent 10 years working as a commercial lawyer.

I qualified into private practice in London, before specialising in sports and media law with a move in-house to my dream job at Sky Sports.

After nearly 5 years I made a lifestyle change and moved to Sydney, where I worked as a senior legal consultant at Austar (a large national telco since acquired by Foxtel).

An increasingly nagging feeling that the law wasn't my lifetime career led to a move back to the UK to set up a residential property business and begin my coaching training.

I have now worked as a qualified L&D professional (mentor, coach and career consultant) for over 10 years.

I help my clients get more out of themselves and more out of their careers. My long-standing passion is career fulfilment - both my clients and my own.

MY COACHING & MENTORING

My coaching philosophy remains simple - to help clients realise more of their potential and to experience greater fulfilment, both personally and professionally.

I work with clients on a range of issues including career progression and career change, skills and performance development, and leadership style.

As well as being able to draw on my coach training from one of the UK's leading coaching schools, I also draw from my own legal career experience.

I have a detailed knowledge of the profession and the challenges and opportunities facing lawyers in an ever-evolving legal landscape.

I deliver coaching face-to-face in the UK, and via Skype in the UK and worldwide. I work with my face to face clients at my London & Manchester coaching rooms (other major cities can be agreed), or in their offices (if appropriate).
