Despina’s 25 year pedigree of working with some of the biggest names in the legal industry have taught her that the single biggest source of client disappointment is the realisation that the expert partners and senior lawyers who act as draw cards in the first place are often inaccessible due to being spread very thinly over the immense workloads required to carry the huge overheads of a “top end of town” law firm. Worse yet, much of the work is dealt out to junior levels in-house, which is where the mistakes start creeping in.
