How I Started my Business

I am the founder and managing director of Lionshead Law, a boutique virtual law firm specialising in employment, immigration, intellectual property and commercial law and I am always looking for like-minded, talented lawyers to join the 'pride'. 

I started the firm because I am passionate about what I do but was becoming jaded by the way I was having to do it. I didn't like the inherent conflict between billing targets and achieving the best outcome for the client. I didn't like the 'at your desk' culture. My idea was to create a virtual boutique firm which was based on strong core values and which respected and reflected the lifestyle choices of both lawyers and their clients.

Job Description

I founded Lionshead Law in 2013 because I was completely passionate about my career in law but less than convinced that the traditional law firm operating with fixed hours from a fixed location and with an hourly rate for clients was the best way to both make a profit and provide a client focussed service. 

While the firm is my passion, that doesn't mean it has been easy! It is the product of long sleepless nights working on my business plan, dreaming up the ideal law firm for both clients and solicitors and the end product is a virtual firm which enables the best solicitors in four practice areas to provide the best possible service to clients in an affordable, transparent and – for the solicitors – highly profitable way whilst enabling them to work around their other commitments or interests.

Starting the business takes time and energy (which can be a scarce resource with two kids!), but also skills and knowledge which I have acquired along the way. You can read more about Lionshead at and, if you are interested, I would be happy to tell you more about the journey and share my advice/assistance in whatever way I can.
