Crafty Counsel

Welcome to the Crafty Show, a legal podcast. Produced by Crafty Counsel, a digital media company and community with the aim to spread joy, connection and insight to in-house lawyers. Join Crafty Counsel’s founder Ben White as he speaks to lawyers who have left private practice, often to join in-house legal teams about their career journeys.

In this third episode Ben is joined by Katie Power. Katie has had a super interesting career journey. She has done what many lawyers, particularly in-house lawyers, aspire to. She has been the consultant General Counsel to various exciting startups, some of them household names. And her portfolio career includes not only being a general counsel for those companies, but also pursuing her own interests such as being a pilates teacher. She originally trained at Norton Rose Fulbright after which she worked as a lawyer at the Financial Services Authority and later as an Associate at Addlesaw Goddard. Katie then took a break from law altogether to become a pilates instructor for a few years before she moved to a portfolio career as an in-house lawyer. Katie works flexibly to ensure she’s outdoors as much as possible and she teaches pilates whenever she can.
