In this episode of Lessons I Learned in Law Scott Brown speaks to Fraser Simpson.  Fraser is Associate General Counsel for Wellcome Trust, a charitable foundation focused on global public health, where he heads up the Ethics, Governance & Compliance Team. Fraser qualified at Magic Circle firm, Linklaters, but pursued a career in-house where he has worked across a range of impactful organisations. He has experience in designing and building teams.

Fraser shares the lessons he learned in law including:

  • Try new things, and do not be afraid to take a chance.
  • Kindness repays. Invest in nurturing relationships.
  • Don't be constrained by precedents and templates. Be creative and focus on user experience.

Fraser also reflects on how valuable he found the shared parental leave that he was able to take around the birth of his children. Meanwhile his hatred of ties sees workplace dress codes confined to Room 101.
