Our highly anticipated podcast is now LIVE and ready for you to dive into! We are thrilled to bring you a captivating new series that will keep you engaged, enlightened, and empowered. Get ready to embark on a journey of thought-provoking discussions, intriguing stories, and valuable insights from industry experts and thought leaders.

Hosted by the incredible Janelle Filson Wrigley, this podcast focuses on an important and timely topic: women’s leadership in the legal industry. Janelle has dedicated months of research and preparation to conduct interviews with leading women across the legal profession, and the results are nothing short of extraordinary.

In our second episode, we cross over to the UK, where our incredible host Janelle Filson Wrigley engages in an inspiring conversation with Florence Brocklesby, founder of Bellevue Law, an exceptional employment law firm.

Florence’s journey is nothing short of remarkable. After beginning her career in the prestigious Magic Circle, she took a break to start a family. However, upon returning, she couldn’t find a law firm that aligned with her vision as a working parent. Undeterred, she decided to forge her own path. Armed with only her laptop, a website, and an office in a garden shed, she founded Bellevue Law.

From those humble beginnings, Bellevue Law has not only thrived as a firm but has also demonstrated that top-tier legal work can be accomplished within a humane and flexible working environment. Florence’s story serves as both an inspiration for us all to build the world we envision and as a challenge to larger law firms to think more creatively about retaining talented women lawyers who seek greater work-life balance.
