Karen is currently "taking a breather".
She has over 20 years' experience in the legal, property and mortgage market. Starting her career at Birmingham Midshires, she has worked in a number of senior management positions which include three leading Conveyancing Panel Management companies. In 2000 Karen co-founded legal panel management firm Easier2Move before selling to My Home Move in 2010, when she took up the role of Corporate Sales Director.
She founded her own consultancy in 2012, providing sales and marketing advice for legal firms across a range of channels including lender, estate agency, financial services and direct to consumer.
Karen then brought together a team based on their individual specialisms who offer legal professionals the best marketing and PR services in the sector. This included Solve Legal, the full-service marketing agency dedicated to the legal sector, Editor Assist (editorial packs) and Today's Wills & Probate (industry news publication), all of which she has since exited.
