Charlotte graduated with a law degree in 2008 before being called to the Bar in 2011. Following her legal education Charlotte worked in London as a headhunter in Investment Banking across Europe. Charlotte headed up the Equity Derivatives Sales division and was responsible for business development initiatives, carrying out analysis and pitching research based products to potential clients across London, Paris, Milan, Frankfurt, Madrid and Zurich.
In October 2012 Charlotte moved to a North London law firm, specialising in prison law. As well as her legal caseload, she played a key role in the management of the firm in areas including recruitment, marketing and business development. It was in this role that Charlotte developed the desire to combine her legal qualifications and knowledge with her passion for the commerciality of a law firm.
Seeking the right opportunity to allow her to utilise her varied skill set and experience, Charlotte joined Leathes Prior as Business Development and Marketing Manager in September 2014, promoted to Associate at the firm in May 2017. In May 2019, Charlotte accepted the role of Head of Business Development & Operations in which she now works closely with the firm's Management Commitee, responsible for overseeing the wider Management Team in an operational role.
Charlotte successfully completed Managing Safely with the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health in July 2020. In her spare time Charlotte enjoys networking, attending events on behalf of the firm, and also spending time with her friends and family - if possible all revolving around some good food and drink.
