Lynne says she is very proud of Bolt Burdon Kemp’s reputation amongst our peers and competitors for being an innovative and well run firm. She believes that a happy workplace is essential in order to provide the highest levels of client service. Lynne is particularly proud of the very flexible working policy she designed to attract and retain the very best staff.
Lynne is very active in the local community, being a past president of the Islington Chamber of Commerce and a board member of Angel AIM our local BID. Lynne has a firm belief that we should all do our bit for charity, and under her leadership, Bolt Burdon Kemp raises funds for the NSPCC. Helping young people is important to Lynne – so much flows from being ready for the world of work; she is a director of Chance UK a local charity providing mentoring to disadvantaged primary school children. In 2005 Lynne was awarded the Mayor of Islington’s Civic Award in recognition of her contribution to the community.
