Would you like to re-energise your legal career so you can:
Land your dream job in a role where you will thrive?
Secure your next promotion - to senior associate, counsel, partner, or into a more senior in-house role?
Start in a new role with impact so that you position yourself as the 'one to watch'?
But you can't at the moment because...
Your career isn't going in the direction you thought it would or that you want, but no one seems willing to support you in changing course
You worry you’re in the wrong job and that maybe the law isn't for you any more, but that if you leave you'll have failed and wasted all the time you've invested in your legal career
You're frustrated and feeling lost because you've had interviews, but not been made any offers
You've been told to stick it out and you'll be promoted, but you're still stuck where you've been for several years
You want satisfaction and meaning from your professional life, but you don't have a clue how to get it
You have no idea how to show your worth to sponsors or recruiters
You're fed up with watching other people getting great work and mentorship, and you can't understand why you're not
You're wondering how you can keep going when you’re feeling so tired and bored and burnt-out
You're always second-guessing yourself and doubting your abilities
You're hoping against hope that someone will appreciate all your efforts and recognise your potential, but it feels like you're invisible
You have absolutely no idea what you need to do to get ahead in your career

Here's what lawyers are saying about the Lawyers Career Mastermind
6 years' PQE Associate, US firm
"I was really struggling to find purpose and direction in my career and signing up for Paula’s Lawyers Career Mastermind was exactly what I needed. It has changed my outlook on my career and I now feel confident and optimistic about what lies ahead. It’s been a brilliant investment in myself and I honestly wish I had discovered it earlier. I wholeheartedly recommend Paula to any lawyer feeling stuck in their career."
'Linda', Senior In-House Legal Counsel
"Paula not only understands the way lawyers think, but she really cares about her clients. Her carefully balanced, straight-talking approach drills down into what you’re thinking and why, then helps you create strategies to secure the outcome you want. Paula’s mentoring has enabled me to secure a job in a new sector in a far shorter timeframe than I’d have managed on my own. I cannot recommend Paula highly enough."
6 years' PQE Litigator, now in a new firm with a bright future
"Before I started working with Paula, I was unsure whether I wanted to continue in law. I couldn't see an obvious way to reconcile the issues that were affecting me at work with remaining in the profession.
Paula has helped me to think about the next stage of my career in new and challenging ways. Her approach was more holistic than I expected and, coupled with the invaluable weekly group sessions, hugely effective. It was incredibly reassuring to meet other lawyers who had similar concerns and with whom ideas and strategies could be discussed freely and safely.
The biggest result has been that I now have a much better understanding of how I work and what is important to me. This has boosted my confidence considerably and enabled me to secure a new position which would not have been possible without Paula’s help and ‘inside knowledge’ of the industry.
Paula highly personable, responsive and incredibly generous with her time. She has also worked with some of the best law firms in the UK and abroad and can therefore relate to any issues you may want to discuss.
This programme should be looked at as an investment which can benefit your career immeasurably. I cannot recommend it enough."

I've used my 25 years' experience as a lawyer and coach with some of the world's most prestigious law firms to create a flexible career advancement framework with a proven track record of helping time-poor lawyers to:
build their confidence
enhance their professional reputation and
advance their career within 3 to 6 months
Why is coaching lawyers so important to me?
When I was in practice, I had no support or sponsorship of any kind.
Now I hate to see others going through the same stress and frustration of not knowing how to stand up for themselves and make things happen in their career.
Law firms usually only invest in coaching at partner or path-to-partnership level and it's a glaring omission in my view that all lawyers aren't encouraged to be the best they can be through more tailored support.
Though my Mastermind, I want to empower as many lawyers as possible to enjoy their work, live an empowered and authentic life, being true to themselves and fulfilling their purpose.
After all, we only get one shot at this!
