Progression of my career through challenging and varied work was critical and Peerpoint was attractive because of the relationship with Allen & Overy. Being run by lawyers, Peerpoint understand what lawyers need.
Having spent many years in private practice and then in-house I was looking for a way to gain more control and variety. I am now on my fifth assignment with Peerpoint, working with a US bank. I always have the backing of Peerpoint and Allen & Overy there to provide me with the resources I need. They’re very helpful in the way they support their consultants; they apply the usual A&O standard of excellence to everything they do.
The way legal services are provided is changing. I want more control and more choice so that if I want to take time out and do something else, I can. I’m a keen mountain biker and we have set up a tourism-related business in Scotland.
