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 the podcast Lawyer's Coach. 


Drawing from the themes that they commonly see when consulting and coaching lawyers, they are seeking through this podcast to create a platform for lawyers to share their stories, journeys and motivations.


Our guests

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. 


All of our guests are special in their own right, some are household names, some are close friends. All of them have opened up and shared their stories with us. They have inspired us and we hope they inspire you too! If you would like to be a guest, or would like to nominate someone, then email us.
