Krista

l7n-CInM

Krista is a qualified insurance/reinsurance litigator with 9 years PQE experience. After a successful career in private practice, she took a career break to raise her family. Five years on, she was ready to resume her legal career but unsure about where to begin.

An introduction to the Reignite Academy and to member firm RPC made all the difference.

We spoke to her about her experience.

What made you decide to return to private practice?

After taking many years out to raise my daughters, I was keen to get my legal career back on track.  I had missed the work, the people, the intellectual challenges and being busy on interesting things.

How have you found the experience so far?

I have been at RPC for 5 months and it’s fantastic.  The training and encouragement from both RPC and Reignite have been excellent.  Probably the biggest challenge for me at the beginning  was my lack of confidence, but thanks to my incredibly supportive supervisor and team,  I am now taking on more responsibility and a more diverse caseload and the imposter syndrome is lifting.  Everyone at RPC has been very welcoming and friendly too, which has been wonderful.

I have just accepted a permanent role with the firm and couldn’t be more excited about the future.

What advice would you give to others contemplating a return?

Contact the Reignite team.   I could not and would not have done this without them.
