In this episode of Lessons I Learned in Law Scott Brown speaks to Anna Butler, Group General Counsel at Long Harbour Ltd, an investment and asset management firm with £3.6 billion assets under management.
Anna trained at US law firm Mayer Brown and after six years there, moved to city law firm RPC. She moved in house to head up the capital redevelopment program at UCL and since then has had a number of leadership roles in different sectors.
Anna shares some of the lessons she learned in law including:
· Law is a people business. It is crucial to build relationships both inside and outside your law firm or business.
· Be open to opportunities. There is no set career path to General Counsel.
· Work in a business that you believe in and are passionate about. The more invested you are, the better you can deliver.
Anna also reveals how tv show LA Law was the inspiration for her career in the legal profession!
