Maxine has a proven ability to take charge and work closely with other colleagues as part of a team effort to produce outstanding results in a court of law. She is an expert at researching case studies, writing legal strategies and staying up to date with legislation. As a committed individual, she leaves nothing to chance and is prepared to work weekends and late-night hours when preparing for a trial. In her current role she covers a broad range of sectors and services including but not limited to Intellectual Property, Financial Services and Retail. Being a superb communicator means she can develop new client relationships and build and maintain existing ones. During her career she has acted alongside lawyers in other offices and major international law firms. What really makes her stand out is her ability to ensure that all her junior staff are equipped with the appropriate skills, knowledge, attitude and competencies required to perform their role. As a strategic thinker who possesses solid business acumen, she is able to organize and manage multiple priorities. Right now, she would like to join an institution where she can eventually work her way up to becoming a partner in the firm.
