WELCOME TO SIMPSON JONES

Simpson Jones is a virtual practice management service established by Louise Jones, a legal PA with in excess of 25 years legal experience, 20 of which have been spent supporting barristers from their time as Junior Counsel, through to taking Silk and, in some instances, appointment as a High Court Judges and winding up practices.

During her time working in the Law Library, Louise observed that barristers were increasingly opting out of the traditional route of hiring secretaries/PAs and undertaking administration tasks themselves. This is a situation that works well for some, but very often, can negatively impact on the development of a barrister’s practice. As a barrister’s practice develops, so too does their administrative burden and, in turn, the time required to be spent managing that role. Deadlines start to slip, reminders re late paperwork can be more common and, very often, billing is put on the long finger with billable fees slipping through the cracks.

Simpson Jones offer packages to assist barristers in just this position. Drawing on her experience, Louise reviews a potential client’s practice and devises day to day management systems, taking on the “behind the scenes” essential work and allowing her clients to focus on the development of their practices.

More About us

Although there are a wide array of legal PAs/VAs and executives, many of these are generalists. Simpson Jones specialise in working with barristers. Louise, has worked for many barristers over the last 2 decades in a wide range of practice areas and at different stages of practice. She has a keen understanding of life at the Bar and uses her skills and expertise to support her barrister clients.
