Episode 6: Persistence with purpose – one woman’s entrepreneurial journey to improve access to justice

In this episode I speak with Katie Richards, lawyer, founder and CEO of online law firm Virtual Legal. 

Katie and her team are achieving their ambitious vision to deliver a sophisticated public self service legal system. Katie shares how she went from corporate lawyer to running an online law firm; practical and regulatory challenges she’s faced, how she came back from an incident that nearly destroyed her company – and her tip for action towards the end of the interview is gold.

You will hear about her commitment to corporate social responsibility and what a fire extinguisher has to do with her business model.  We also talked about pie…

If you run a business you’ll empathise with much of what Katie shares. You will especially appreciate this interview if you are trying to incorporate more tech into your practice or interact with clients in more user friendly ways.
