FOR LAWYERS,
BY LAWYERS

OUR STORY

Oliver Hansard and Claire Rason are both ex-City lawyers. That is not the only thing that unites them. They are also both coaches and share a passion for people. This desire to see people perform at their best was the inspiration for Lawyer's Coach.  Drawing from the themes that they commonly see when coaching lawyers, they are seeking to create a community for lawyers to share their stories, journeys and motivations.

 

SERIES 3: LAW 2:0

Lawyer's Coach is a series of podcasts that aims to find out what makes lawyers tick. Claire Rason and Oliver Hansard harness their unique skill sets to interview a range of legal leaders. Lawyer's Coach challenges lawyers to think differently and be inspired by their colleagues and peers.

 

2020 was a year of change. It changed the way we worked, the way we listened, the way we do business. In Series 3, Claire and Oliver interview a range of key figures in law, in order to explore what the impact of 2020 has been on the legal profession.  Will 2.0 emerge?

EP2: PARTNERING WITH BUSINESS

Benjamin White created a community for in-house lawyers. He started it to fulfil a personal need but he soon came to realise that the need was greater than he first thought and so Crafty Counsel was born.

Ben speaks about his journey in law and what he sees as the legacy of 2020. We also think about the changing role of the in-house lawyer from risk manager to business partner.
