Learning the Ropes in Administrative Roles at Lanyon Bowdler

I was recently given the opportunity to explore ‘behind the departmental curtains’ in the private client and marketing departments.

I'd originally decided to study the law as I wanted to ask more questions; however I am now looking forward to discovering how to provide the answers. The leap from theory to practice is a notoriously difficult one, but my administrative roles helped to bridge the gap by allowing me to observe the art of problem solving, client contact and management. These skills are especially important when assisting vulnerable clients who may not have capacity. It is difficult to speculate as to how these situations ought to be handled; however I was completely inspired by how the private client team ask the right questions in the right ways.

Even though administrative roles are not directly responsible for providing legal advice, they are hugely important in providing support and the good foundations for business to succeed.
