Tara is Client Solutions Lead at Foot Anstey. Previous to this she held senior positions in Business Development and Marketing in the legal market over the last 15 years. However, it was her time outside of law that Tara really developed the knowledge and skills she applies in her role today. Forever curious she was fascinated by computers in the early 90’s and learned to programme in PASCAL. She then worked at a very entrepreneurial company in London which worked across a number of vertical and horizontal industries across the globe – this honed her skills on understanding clients and markets. Having spent the last 15 years in law has allowed her to nurture the skills required to span business, legal and technology in a way that helps to differentiate Foot Anstey.
