Lara Quie, a former corporate solicitor with more than 15 years’ experience across law firms in the UK, Singapore and Hong Kong has joined Chambers this week. Her knowledge, insight and relationship building skills will add a new dimension to Twenty Essex’s already renowned position as a provider of legal services as it continues to expand its influence in the Asia Pacific region.
Lara will work alongside the London based BD Team in further enhancing the profile of Twenty Essex as a pre-eminent set of commercial barristers at the centre of commercial litigation, arbitration and the provision of legal advice to the international business community. Lara’s creative marketing expertise and her sense of what clients want from their legal representatives will help to ensure that we maintain our reputation for providing a quality service to our existing clients in the region and assisting new clients to access market-leading expertise from the members of Twenty Essex.
Lara said, “I am very excited to be joining Twenty Essex in Singapore to help further raise the profile of Chambers in the Asia Pacific region. Singapore’s position as one of the world’s top litigation and arbitration hubs makes it an exciting place to be and I’m looking forward to supporting our clients and our barristers and being part of the dynamic BD team. This is a great time to be entering the world of dispute resolution.”
Chief Executive of Twenty Essex, Jemma Tagg, said, “Lara is joining our global team to continue our efforts in building relationships across the region. Her appointment is a sign of our commitment to Singapore and our determination to ensure that Twenty Essex continues to thrive in a dynamic global legal market where client demands and expectations are constantly evolving. We welcome Lara to our expanding professional team as critical support for our growing membership of specialist advocates.”
As a qualified and certified executive coach, Lara can also provide support in professional development and in enhancing the skillsets of all at Twenty Essex.
