I feel passionately that it is imperative that family lawyers have a confidential space to “download“ and I’m thrilled to be able to offer family law supervision in person or remotely.
I have had an interesting career working in both small and large firms, and I believe this has equipped me to assist potential supervisees in their journeys. So far, I have worked alongside supervisees to deal with a whole range of issues to include:
- Assistance in dealing with extremely difficult clients.
- Helping one senior associate to go through the partnership process to junior partner and then making the transition required.
- Assisting a senior partner with management issues and talking through structural points on how best to maximise the potential of the team.
- Helping a practitioner launch her new practice. Acting as a sounding board in both strategic decisions and issues in challenging cases.
- Talking through business, development, initiatives and providing soundings in relation to a business plan to be presented to the board.
I have been at the forefront of developing alternative dispute resolution in family law, and have always championed arbitration mediation and collaborative practice where appropriate so as to try and reduce the stress that clients ( and lawyers) might feel in the more competitive litigation process.
I am keen to ensure that lawyers have the opportunity to have a private space to talk confidentially to help them in what is a demanding, but incredibly fulfilling career.
