As a legal PA my role is challenging and varied providing high level support to the head of the London office with whom I have worked for 12 years and have forged a close working relationship. In addition I provide professional and efficient support to the property dispute resolution team.
In 2012 our compliance and anti-money laundering procedures were updated and I was very much a part of their implementation, in particular, the new systems for client and matter opening and file reviews becoming the ‘go to’ person following inception as well as assisting the MLRO and COLP.
For the past five years I have been secretarial coordinator for the Chelsea departments of property dispute resolution, commercial real estate and latterly private wealth.
Being organised and methodical are key attributes required in a department whose work is time critical with very strict deadlines to meet.
A senior colleague very kindly referred to me as “a hugely important part of the team who we rely on a lot”.
