Ben founded Crafty Counsel in 2017, after working as a lawyer both at a Magic Circle London law firm and as an In House Counsel. He thought it was odd that In House Counsel found it so hard to access good learning and development resources… particularly when law firms wanted to talk to them so much (and spent an awful lot of time writing client briefings).
Fully dedicated to Crafty Counsel since July 2018, Ben loves meeting lawyers of all persuasions, and others keen to shake up the business of Law.
Ben worked as an M&A lawyer for Clifford Chance from 2009 to 2016, and as Corporate Counsel for Global Fashion Group from 2016 to 2018.
