A woman-Led, modern and adaptive Law Firm.

A woman-Led, modern and adaptive Law Firm.

I was recently invited to a Q&A about women in business for Companies Made Simple. The article is part of a campaign to spotlight on Women-Led Businesses in different industries.

We all talked about finding joy, uncovering a gap in the market, and looking for more, whether that is within our industries or for ourselves.  

Q. What inspired you to start your own business?

A. “I no longer wanted to be at the beck and call of others all day. I found myself stuck in court all day whilst my daughter’s nursery would be calling me to collect her when she was unwell. I told myself I would never let that happen again.”

Q. What Is the biggest challenge you’ve faced as an entrepreneur?

A. “As a law firm we are under tight guidelines and regulations. As the owner, I spend a huge part of my time making sure we stay compliant. We have no space for slip-ups, and it requires a lot of vigilance.”

Q. Is there anything you wish you had known at the beginning of your journey?

A. “Starting a new business can be lonely. I wish I had spoken to other businesses. Now I am experienced, I find myself talking to other founders daily. It's all about staying friendly and connected. They may have an answer to a problem you’re experiencing!”

Q. How can more women be encouraged to be entrepreneurs?

A.  “I think a lot of women worry about how entrepreneurship affects their lives. However, entrepreneurship has made me a better mum and lawyer. It is possible. Not only have I become a better lawyer, but I am a better mum.”
