The Portfolio Lawyer with Larissa Joy

Larissa Joy
Date & Time
09:00 Wednesday 12 October 2022

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.

Murray Hunt
Date & Time
09:00 Wednesday 9 November 2022

As Director of the Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law, Murray Hunt has had a lifelong interest in the social significance of the law and the ways in which practitioners can help to develop a better understanding of the role of the law in society, politics and business. Murray’s session for BCKR will cover modern slavery, accountability for war crimes, parliamentary scrutiny and the significance of the rule of law for global businesses, as he takes members through his own varied career journey as well as the ways in which lawyers can broaden their horizons by engaging with the rule of law issues which confront us today, both domestically and internationally.

He is also the UK’s alternate member of the Council of Europe’s Commission for Democracy Through Law (the Venice Commission) and Legal Adviser to the All Party Parliamentary Group on the Rule of Law, for which the Bingham Centre provides the secretariat. Murray is also an Associate Member of Matrix, which, with a number of like-minded barristers, he helped to set up in 2000.
