Consultant Executive Search

After working as a deputy civil-law notary for four years, Sophie made the switch to the business world. Here she worked for approximately four years as Legal Counsel and Deputy Company Secretary with a fast-growing and dynamic stock exchange fund in the financial sector.

“I spent some very pleasant years with my previous employers in a learning-rich environment. Their business models and cultures are completely different, but both are very inspiring. I was able to use the knowledge I acquired as a deputy civil-law notary in my role as a company lawyer. In this position I learned a great deal about corporate governance and the financial sector in general. That knowledge, and the fact that connecting people is second nature to me, means that after considerable research and several good conversations I decided to pursue my ambitions at Legal People. My specific knowledge of the notarial profession at a large office and my experience within a listed company’s legal environment come in handy when creating the right match between candidate and employer, which in turn leads to positive energy.”
