General Counsel, Coplus
Abigail's professional bio / interests
I am in the house lawyer for an insurance company based in Norwich. After completing my training contract in private practice I moved in house. I have worked in house since qualification in 2009 when I joined in the house department of a well known travel brand. I have since gained in experience in a shipping company working in the oil and gas industry and now work in the insurance industry. Having worked in house for a considerable period of time I have built up experience in a mix of general commercial law areas - commercial contracts, data protection (including acting as a DPO), employment and HR, IP and FCA knowledge and compliance.
I’d like help with…
Sharing in house best practice and expanding my network in the in house legal world. Learning about legal tech and how it could assist a small legal team.
An interesting, or unusual fact(s) about me…
I can tap dance.
A career highlight
Probably obtaining my current role. As a very general commercial role it suited me. Although I have been in current role 5 years which has gone far too quickly!
