Law 365 - Commercial Law
Kim Simmonds, CEO and founder of Law 365, started the firm in 2014 after her first child was born. Why? Because she did not see any good examples around her of female lawyers who had a good balance of career and family life – and she knew that could change. Her mission was to create a law firm that made legal advice affordable to technology companies by introducing Legal-as-a Service (LaaS) and also supported employees who wanted balance in their lives.
“I am big advocate for change in the workplace for parents, and especially for women,“ says Kim. “My legal teams are currently all female-led, mainly because I have created an environment that attracts incredible senior, experienced female lawyers. Law 365 gives them the right balance in their lives; it works for them. I give my team the tools they need to succeed in and out of the workplace. We have experts come in and give talks about a variety of topics (menopause, suicide, testicular cancer, and financial planning for the future) because I do not believe these topics are someone else’s problem. It is a privilege to lead and I try do everything I can to support my team with the tools they need in their lives.”
Kim turned 40 this year and has over 27 members of staff with a projected turnover of over £2 million for 2022. Law 365 is a multi-award-winning firm that has been listed for two years in a row by Great Places to Work, scoring an incredible 100% for satisfaction.
