Leanne spent the first 10 years of her career as a corporate lawyer at Freshfields. She then moved to Matheson in 2004, one of Ireland’s leading firms, where she became a corporate partner and headed up its London office until 2011.
Leanne decided to change careers to legal executive search and joined Fox Rodney Search at the start of 2011. She soon became a Managing Director and one of their leading recruiters, undertaking retained partner searches, partner representation, team moves and lift-outs for top UK and international law firms.
Throughout her career as a recruiter, Leanne has maintained a strong focus on diversity and works with law firm clients to not only meet diversity goals, but also to champion the benefits of having a diverse workforce.
Founding Lawyer Talent Network with Maurice is a new and exciting phase in her career where she can utilise her extensive network and past experience to offer a bespoke service to clients and candidates.
Leanne is married with two daughters at university, one even considering a career in law! She has embraced the "empty nest" by rebranding herself as an entrepreneur, founding a new business and getting into reformer pilates.
