Experience: 20 years PQE
Firm: Reynolds Porter Chamberlain (RPC) LLP
Working as a professional was - and still is to an extent – undervalued and even disparaged in my community which values trade, self-employment and independent business ownership. I had difficulty persuading many in my immediate family that there was a sound financial argument to my going to university.
My father was an unusual exception to this but by the time I left university he had passed away and the pressure was all the more acute to get earning ASAP. After trying it the expected way, I was true to myself and followed my vision for my career. Today I am a partner at an award winning City law firm.
