With over 20 years of national, regional, and global experience, Julia’s work extends across the legal sector (Law firm, In-house, Law Company) and professional services.
A particular passion is advising on how to incorporate Sustainability, and Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) into strategy to drive growth and meet changing stakeholder expectations. She co-leads the World Economic Forum’s “The Future of the Corporation Project,” defining the corporate governance, leadership and stakeholder relationships required to advance purposeful sustainable businesses.
Julia’s consulting background started 20 years ago, as a partner in a global legal sector management consultancy for seven years (three in the US), culminating in an acquisition by Thomson Reuters. Beforehand, Julia was an internal consultant at Clifford Chance, focused on business planning and establishing its first global key client program.
Most recently, Julia was the Global Chief Strategy Officer and Global Executive Committee member at Baker McKenzie. Advising and working with four successive Chairmen and leadership teams over 12 years, Julia led strategic growth, leadership and business transformation projects. As Director of Marketing, Business Development and Communications, she also played pivotal roles in major global client teams and client-facing engagements.
Julia is a NED for the Foundling Museum, the UK’s first children’s charity and an inaugural Advisory Board member of Thomson Reuters UK Transforming Women’s Leadership in Law Forum.
