I joined the Accounts team as the Tax & Accounts Manager in 1995. Harbottle & Lewis was a client of mine at my previous company so it feels like I’ve worked with the firm for much longer.
The legal market place has changed so much since then and the structure of the accounts team has evolved with it. I’ve had the opportunity to work on some big projects – converting to an LLP, changing accounting systems and changes to our year end date.
My role here is incredibly varied which is what I love about it. I work closely with partners across the firm on a range of projects throughout the accounting year, including year-end accounts, auditing, budgeting and partners’ tax. In other firms working directly with partners might be a challenge but it’s one of the best bits of my role here. I know it sounds clichéd but the people are great and that makes such a difference. It’s a really supportive environment.
