The Boutique Lawyer Show: Law grad at 50 to award-nominated firm owner

19 July 2022 By Robyn Tongol

Adele Anthony has, as she put it, “always wanted to be the bride and not the bridesmaid” when it comes to her career. At 45, she decided to get her law degree, and — now, a few years after graduating  is a finalist for the Sole Practitioner of the Year category at the 2022 Australian Law Awards.

On this episode of The Boutique Lawyer Show, host Jerome Doraisamy welcomes Your Legacy Lawyer principal Adele Anthony  whose firm is also a finalist in the Regional Firm of the Year category at the upcoming Australian Law Awards  to discuss her career and journey before entering law school in her mid-40s, what drove her (personally and professionally) to be a law firm owner, the need to talk about one’s own experiences with clients, and garnering a more holistic perspective on what her clients are experiencing.

Ms Anthony also delves into working as flexibly as possible, the extent to which one should compartmentalise, her approach to new and emerging technologies and how she is looking to market her practice, her plans for expansion across the country, and what guidance she would offer about making career shifts later in life.
