Her story

Anna is a Partner at HopgoodGanim Lawyers.

Without mentioning your job title, how would you describe what it is you do now (whether at home, work, in the community, etc.)?

I help employers and insurers to navigate personal injuries claims. I mentor law students and junior solicitors to develop their own careers in this area. I hope I am raising kind, compassionate and resilient children.

What are the first three words you think of when you hear the word ‘diversity’?

Experiences, perspectives, contributions.

What do you think it will take to develop truly diverse thinking within the legal industry?

The opportunity for people of more diverse backgrounds to dream of, qualify for and participate fully, in legal work. Change must occur at all levels from schools and university entrants up to partners, the Bar and the Judiciary.

What was your main driver to enter the legal industry?

I wanted to help people through advocacy.
