Having spent 10 years in private practice, including as a Partner in both a media boutique as well as a City law firm, Nicola made the switch in-house. After some years as an in-house employment lawyer, she then made a further switch to a more generalist role, heading up the UK legal team for the Publicis Groupe of advertising, digital, media & marketing companies, via a short stint as the personal lawyer for an international family office. She then moved completely into the tech world, with a period at Airbnb prior to her current role as the global General Counsel for Ebiquity Plc, a media tech company. Nicola is also a non-Executive Director of a Social Enterprise – Clean Slate Training & Employment CIC, which provides practical advice & support to people on low incomes and the long-term unemployed. In her spare time, when not making the most of London life, she can be found in far flung places, usually with hiking boots at the ready.
