Welcome to the Limitless Lawyer Podcast, (formerly Life Design for Lawyer). Unleashing purpose, power and potential for talented lawyers who want fun and freedom in their legal careers.

I'm Charlotte a Lawyer turned Executive Coach. In my work as an Executive Coach for lawyers, I support talent from around the globe with creating more purposeful and effective ways of doing business and practicing the law. My intention is to inspire the next generation of “lawyer leaders,” and play an incremental role in the shifting of the legal landscape into a new era. 

I stand for:

  • More inclusive and human-centric law firms. 
  • Law firm innovation.
  • The harnessing of legal tech. 

The possibilities for the legal sector are limitless, if we choose to think freely, be bold and reimagine “law firm life” as it could (and should) be. As the late Steve Jobs said, “Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower”.

 About Charlotte

"I was offered partnership at a top travel law firm before I turned 30, and to the outside world, I had quickly achieved the career success I had been striving for. But something felt off. The work was challenging and high-level, but I didn’t enjoy it anymore. I wasn’t happy. I wanted more but couldn’t put my finger on what that was.

I know how it feels to be at the top of your game yet deeply dissatisfied. Like something’s missing but you can’t quite figure out what because there’s so much going on in your life and you don’t know where to start.

That’s why I created the Limitless Lawyer Program – to simplify and demystify the process of figuring out what you want from life and how to get there, whether that’s pivoting to a new role within the legal industry that feels more aligned with your core values, pivoting out of law entirely and starting your own business, or simply making conscious mindset and lifestyle changes to achieve a more balanced and satisfying life.
