Emma is a corporate lawyer and head of Business Services at law firm Hewitsons, with responsibility for the direction and growth of the firm’s corporate and litigation services to clients. Upon qualifying in 1990 she joined Sprecher Grier, a small firm in the City, and became the firm’s managing partner in 2005 growing it through a series of mergers until in 2015 it became a substantial top 50 law firm with the creation of Shakespeare Martineau. She subsequently joined Hewitsons and now sits on the Management Board of the firm and heads up the London office.
Emma has always been interested in inclusivity and providing people with the skills to achieve their potential. She has been involved in a number of charities including those that support young people and teach them skills to help break the cycle of long term unemployment in deprived areas. In her current firm Emma has founded an innovation forum for all staff to feel part of the growth of the firm and help to contribute ideas to improve the firm.
Emma finds walking therapeutic and has walked the ancient Camino de Santiago pilgrim trails through Spain and Portugal which she finds an excellent antidote to the rush and consumerism of working life.
