Lara joined Beyond in 2017 as a paralegal in the Corporate team. She applied for and was successful in obtaining a training contract with the firm after working for two years as a paralegal, during which time she worked on a number of large, complex corporate transactions in a client-facing role.
Since then, she has undertaken seats in the Real Estate team and gained wider, non-commercial experience within the Children Law team in Beyond’s sister business McAlister Family Law, consistent with our belief that our people need rounded experience and human perspective to be able to grow their commercial careers.
As a trainee, Lara has gained a wealth of hands-on, client-focused experience, having worked on a wide range of commercial transactions. She is a team player with a down-to-earth, straightforward approach and like the rest of the team, she plays a big part in the Group’s social scene, organising events with colleagues and our various teams. She believes that the opportunity and experience she has had with Beyond sets our business apart from the crowd.
