"COMMERCIAL NOUS AND THE HUMAN TOUCH"

I have put together the short video above to give a flavour for who I am, what I do, and how I do it. I also touch on some of the key elements clients are desperate to find in their lawyers.

Do take a look.

 

EXCITING AND ENGAGING TRAINING, CONSULTANCY, COACHING AND MENTORING FOR THE LEGAL PROFESSION

ANDREW & WATSON FOX

I have a rather unique background - 30 years in legal practice, from trainee to board member and chief operating officer. 
I am also a trained actor, fortunate enough to have appeared in several professional productions, including on the West End stage.
It is this wide and varied experience that I bring to my business, Watson Fox

BUSINESS SKILLS TRAINING

In many ways, the mainstay of my Watson Fox business. I work with lawyers to help them improve their key commercial and business skills, to become the best they can be. My training is always delivered in a way which is relatable to them, and easily transferrable to, and usable in, their day to day working lives.​

CONSULTANCY

I really enjoy rolling my sleeves up and working with law firms to help them with the more strategic, medium to longer term goals and programmes - be they change management, operational improvements, firm wide wellbeing projects or client facing work.

COACHING & MENTORING

I have always had a real passion for working with individual lawyers and others, to help them grow and fulfil their potential. There is nothing quite like watching someone flourish and then achieve their individual goals and aspirations. I now carry that on in the coaching and mentoring work I do with lawyers at all levels of experience.
