The Portfolio Lawyer with Larissa Joy

The Portfolio Lawyer with Larissa Joy

We are delighted that Larissa has agreed to talk to us about constructing a portfolio, based on her fascinating experience.

Having started her career as a City lawyer, Larissa moved out of law altogether 10 years ago and now has a full and varied portfolio. She is a Non-Executive Director of recruitment firm Saxton Bampfylde, law firm Charles Russell Speechlys and the housing association L&Q Group. She also chairs The Foundling Museum and SBT, a consortium including Clifford Chance, Bain, EY, Permira and Thomson Reuters, investing in growing high-potential social enterprises.

Larissa has previously been Vice Chairman of WPP’s Ogilvy Group UK, European COO for PR firm Weber Shandwick, Partner of emerging markets private equity firm, Actis LLP, and Chairman of the House of Illustration. She also holds an FTCL from Trinity College London and an LRAM from the Royal Academy of Music and plays and performs regularly with London Lawyers Music Symphony Orchestra.

Members will have a lot to learn from Larissa’s account of her move away from the law, and the breadth of positions she has since held. If you didn’t participate in Larissa’s earlier event (three years ago and very popular!), this is a tremendous opportunity to hear her views on portfolio life.
