  • Morning

    Kennedys offer hybrid working, which allows me the flexibility to work from home. On these days I not only hit the gym before work, but I also drop my daughter off to school.

  • 8:45

    Upon starting work, I review my emails with a cup of coffee in my hand. I prioritise my busy workload and ensure that I am on top of all deadlines – I would not be able to do this without assistance from our bespoke case management system – Kase!

    I also catch up with my colleagues who work in the Dublin support and litigation assistance teams.

  • 10:00

    I get on top of the new instructions and also take this time to review papers received from clients and set up liability strategy.

  • 11:00

    I take a coffee break and head to our canteen. Sometimes I will meet one of our associates and pick their brain about the newest resolution strategy I am trying to get off the ground on one of my cases. I always appreciate honest reviews from my peers!

  • Lunch

    I am preparing to represent my country during European Championships so lunch lost a lot of its charm as more often than not I need to follow strict diet – thankfully healthy eating seems to be a trend in the Dublin office so I am able to swap healthy recipes with my colleagues.

  • 16:00

    I make settlement calls and work on the settlement strategies on cases. I also use this time to catch up with my expert witnesses and ensure they have all the documents they need.

  • 17:30

    After work I pick my daughter from the gym (yes, she is a champion as well!) and we head home to eat quick dinner before my training.
