Alice Stephenson
Founder & CEO, Plume
I'm on a mission to create and support the law firms of the future. The legal industry is steeped in tradition, archaic practices and outdated perspectives, which is why entrepreneurship and innovation are essential to creating a more modern, fit-for-purpose industry. Without it, we'll fail to attract diverse, talented and creative lawyers and ditch the stereotypes we're so sick of being associated with. I founded Plume to create a law firm that does things differently. Tackling each stereotype head-on, I'm building a forward-thinking, innovative law firm which puts people at the heart of everything it does. My mission is to empower lawyers to challenge tradition, reinvigorate law, and embrace innovation and inclusion. For far too long the legal industry has been synonymous with elitism, legal jargon and a less than exemplary reputation. I’m on a mission to change that.

Purpose of community
Hi, and welcome to The Watering Hole 👋 The Watering Hole is an exclusive community for in-house lawyers packed full of training sessions, a monthly webzine and lawyers looking to propel their careers and businesses forward. The community is managed by Plume. We provide over-stretched and under-resourced in-house lawyers with a safe pair of hands. Our team of senior commercial, employment and data protection lawyers have all worked in-house before, which means we understand first-hand the challenges faced by our clients. This means we promise: 🦩No lengthy risk notes summarising the law 🦩No splinters from sitting on the fence 🦩No comms that need to be translated for your stakeholders Just creative commercial solutions, fuelled by an understanding of your business and the law that empowers, protects and propels it.‍ We're on a mission to challenge the stuffy legal industry: That means no suits, no legal jargon, transparent pricing and a bunch of human lawyers. 🦩 Make sure you check out the Events and Resources tabs so you can register for upcoming events and catch up on ones that you've missed. I'm truly delighted that you're here, and I can't wait to get to know you better. See you soon Alice & the Plume team
