Suzanne joins us as Consultant and will be working on strategic hires for law firms and patent attorney firms as well as in-house appointments across a range of sectors. She will also play a key role in our continued growth in IP & Patents.
Suzanne studied her undergraduate LLB at University of Liverpool and completed her postgraduate LPC at BPP University. She was admitted as a Solicitor of the Senior Courts of England and Wales and practised real estate law prior to taking a leap into legal search & consultancy.
Suzanne has an extremely varied background having worked for both high street firms Foskett Marr Gadsby & Head LLP as well as top 20 law firms Irwin Mitchell and DWF LLP. Her ability to efficiently navigate complex and challenging transactional situations brings praise from clients for her bespoke, responsive and flexible approach. Suzanne adds to our London based capability and will also support our clients in Continental Europe and the Middle East.
She has a passion for legal innovation and regularly attends seminars to discuss the impact of technology in legal services. Suzanne is particularly interested in emerging technologies such as blockchain and crypto assets.
She has a keen eye on cryptocurrencies, their use of blockchain and the reactivity of regulation and compliance. Suzanne thinks it is crucial to uphold the rule of law when it comes to legal tech, but it is also important to strike a balance and avoid stifling progress.
Suzanne joins us at Fides Search during a period of exciting expansion.
Ed Parker, Director had this to say:
‘We are thrilled to welcome Suzanne into the team. She is a truly passionate person and has a deep level of understanding around the legal profession and crucially the future of law. We look forward to introducing her to clients and our network in due course. Suzanne is going to work across a number of areas but crucially is going to support our growth in areas such as IP and Patents.’
‘I’m delighted to be joining Fides! For a number of years prior to qualification as a solicitor I considered a move into legal search consultancy. As cliche as it sounds I love helping people and solving problems – one of the many reasons I got into law! I thrive off client interaction and investigation. I’m excited about this new chapter and very much looking forward to getting to know outstanding people and innovators from diverse backgrounds within the industry!’
‘I am absolutely thrilled and delighted that Suzanne has joined the intellectual property team here at Fides. Her experience within the law will be an invaluable asset to the wider Fides proposition and I personally look forward to working alongside Suzanne and continue the growth and success of Fides’ intellectual property team.’
