Interview with: Tina Khanna | Conveyancing Director | RG Law
WHAT HAS YOUR MORNING LOOKED LIKE?
It has been a busy Monday morning catching up with the team and setting out some clear goals for the week. I love to set some goals at the start of each week and have a plan.
HOW IS BUSINESS AT THE MOMENT?
We have just completed a recruitment drive and we are getting all our new starters trained up and ready to go! It has been an interesting market over the last few months and we are excited to be launching a number of marketing campaigns to drive business and continue our very positive business growth.
HAS IT ALWAYS BEEN ‘LAW’ AS A CHOSEN CAREER?
I decided quite early on, during the last years of school, that I wanted to be a Lawyer. I was always very inspired by the usual legal TV programmes involving the law and showing the clever use of strategy and convincing arguments to present a case in a particular way. This interest continued into my A-levels, as I studied subjects built around interpretation and analysis, such as Psychology, History and English Literature. Analytical thinking and application has always driven my interest in the Law and the ability to have a real impact in assisting people and making a difference.
WHAT IS THE GREATEST ACCOMPLISHMENT IN YOUR CAREER SO FAR?
It was a very proud moment for me when I was offered the role of a Director at RG Law. The company embodies all my own personal values and is hugely committed to progressing its people. It has been amazing to be part of a company that has acted as a springboard in the careers of many legal professionals who have then gone onto start their own companies and become hugely successful. I think interacting with so much talent and helping them fulfil their full potential has been a huge accomplishment during my time as a Director at RG Law.
WHO WOULD YOU SAY IS YOUR BIGGEST INSPIRATION?
Most definitely my parents. They ran a successful business for many years and taught me the importance of driving and shaping your own future. Being a parent myself, I always draw inspiration from them and how they managed all priorities in life so equally. They have always been my biggest ambassadors and I try to make them proud on a daily basis.
WHAT ARE YOU READING AT THE MOMENT?
I really believe in the power of laughter. I love to laugh out loud. I have always loved watching ‘Friends’ and my absolute favourite character is Chandler, played by Matthew Perry. I was very upset after his recent passing and have started to read extracts from his book and plan for that to be my next read. His huge contribution to comedy is something I will always admire and continue to enjoy.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE YOURSELF IF YOU COULD GO BACK TO THE START OF YOUR CAREER IN THE LEGAL SECTOR?
I am quite analytical and can be hard in my critique of myself. I would tell my younger self that you learn something new every day and you don’t need to know everything on day one. Self development is a journey and you should enjoy every day and ask lots and lots of questions. No question is a silly question and there is a huge amount of knowledge and learning to be gained. I try and pass this learning onto anyone that asks me for advice when embarking on their legal career.
HOW HAS THE LEGAL SECTOR CHANGED IN RECENT YEARS?
I do think Covid has changed the industry and stopped people connecting with each other as much as they did before. The best way to form a relationship is to pick up the phone and talk. That’s how you can best understand the expectations and priorities of your clients and email is not always the answer. Connecting with our clients and with each other continues to be an area the industry needs to focus on.
OUTSIDE OF WORK, WHAT MAKES YOU TICK?
I love working on my health and fitness. This gives me a boost of energy on a daily basis and I love to include my family in this by taking long walks to get my steps, but sharing new experiences and journeys with them on the way!
