How did you come to be an Executive Assistant at Laurence Simons?
Prior to starting at LS, I was working as a Paralegal/PA at an international IP Law Firm headquartered in central London. It was an amazing role, but I wanted a change and to challenge myself with an EA role. When I saw the role advertised at LS and later learnt about Clare’s background in IP, I knew the role was for me.
What does your role encompass?
My role at LS is to support Clare in her daily function as CEO, including business operations, administration and a variety of other business-related tasks. However, my role is extremely varied, and as EA, it means that I often get a hand at a variety of tasks across the business, including co-leading on our office move to 73 Watling Street and planning our European team off-site. I am also studying my company secretarial qualifications to act as our quasi “company secretary” and attend all of our quarterly Management Board Meetings.
Who do you work most closely with?
I work most closely with our amazing CEO, Clare Beresford. However, the variety in my role means that I get to speak to most of the team daily, which is lovely given I work remotely.
What do you enjoy about your work?
I love the variety in my role and getting a glimpse into work from across the business. It has allowed me to get insight into what each role entails and has allowed for a better understanding of the business and how it functions.
