My view on Technology and the Future of Law

I recently wrote a piece about my business and my opinion on the future of law, as a guest blogger for and I thought I would share it with you here:

The Link App – a communication tool for modern lawyers

As a lawyer you want to work to the best of your abilities for your clients and to achieve the best outcome on their matters. I know this because I am a lawyer too.

I agreed to be interviewed by about transferable skills, tips for getting a training contract, transitioning from lawyer to businesswoman, and my experience as a consultant solicitor.
