“Lawtrades is exactly what I was looking for when I made the decision to leave full time legal practice to found my own company. Lawtrades gives me the financial security and freedom to bring my dream to life”.
Meet Shaz! She’s a practicing attorney from Philly, PA with an amazing journey. After jumping into the workforce after undergrad and exploring advanced degree options, she was inspired by her then CEO to pursue a business related career. She appreciated the impact the private sector had on the world- from the employees, to consumers, to creating an economy that provides opportunities. Shaz wanted to be a part of helping private sector businesses find success, and thought that a law degree would provide her the best opportunity to do so. She attended Case Western Reserve University School of Law in Cleveland, OH, where she focused on business organization and financial regulation. She’s been practicing in-house ever since.
Path to Lawtrades
As a practicing attorney of over a decade, Shaz wanted to go somewhere her skills could really be used. After leaving full time employment, it was important for her to engage with a team- even as a freelancer. She really liked the culture Lawtrades was creating in the world of law, since it felt like a true legal community matching attorneys with companies in need of assistance. After meeting co-founder Ashish, she saw how much he cared about both sides of the business and knew it was something she wanted to be a part of.
Success with Lawtrades
Straight after leaving her last position, Shaz was able to create a profile on Lawtrades and began applying to jobs of interest. She secured her first role pretty quickly, and has had steady engagements ever since. When asked what her biggest work accomplishment has been with Lawtrades, she wasn’t sure which to pick! During a period of massive growth, Shaz was proud of helping a company create template engagements and “rules of engagement”. She was able to create a process that took work off the legal team’s plate, while empowering the recruiting team to move faster. Shaz has really enjoyed working alongside GC’s to help them navigate return to office plans by helping to bring clarity and a go-forward plan during a period of confusion and unknowns. Overall, she loves taking on the role of “wingman” to legal teams.
Flexible Working Hours
Lawtrades has provided Shaz the opportunity to merge her passions and goals! When she decided to leave full time practice, Lawtrades was exactly what she needed to pursue her goal of founding her own company. Outside of work, Shaz loves to travel and spend quality time with friends. What's more, she’s planning to go to Dublin with friends to see Trevor Noah then roadtrip around Ireland in 2022!
