How to follow your dreams outside law while still working as a lawyer

Share this page:

We are holding an event in conjunction with Legal Cheek on 13 February 2020 where three talented lawyers who left associate roles at elite US and magic circle law firms to pursue their dreams outside law while working as self-employed consultant lawyers for us, will reflect on their career journeys.

Florence McDonald swapped Kirkland & Ellis' debt finance team to develop a new life as an artist, Liz Poon spent eight years at A&O and Dickson Minto in leveraged finance before starting her journey to contribute to diversity and inclusion in the industry, and Anup Mehta used associate roles at Gowling WLG and A&O as the springboard to found his own tech start-up. 

These three consultants will be joined by Lisa Mulley, head of consultant management, who will discuss how the team supports consultant lawyers through every stage of their careers with Peerpoint.

The session kicks off with a series of short TED-style talks, after which Legal Cheek founder and publisher Alex Aldridge will chair an audience-led Q&A with the speakers. There will then be drinks, canapés and networking with the three consultants, Lisa and members of the Peerpoint team.

Date: Thursday 13 February 2020
Time: 6pm to 8:45pm
Location: Allen & Overy, One Bishops Square, London, E1 6AD
