Welcome to Lizzie.net.


I work as a solicitor in the real estate finance team at Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner LLP and outsourced to clients' offices. Currently on my eighth client secondment with HSBC UK Bank plc. Previous secondments included BlackRock, AIG, Deutsche Bank, Aviva Investors, LaSalle Investment Management, Eastdil Secured and Allianz Real Estate (Paris team). I retrained by doing the Graduate Diploma in Law at BPP Law School in Waterloo and the Legal Practice Course at BPP's campus in Holborn.


In a former life I worked as a freelance journalist specialising in technology, architecture, design, healthcare and motorcycles writing for (among others) Wired, Wallpaper*, Graphics International (now Grafik), Design Week, The Times, The Telegraph, The Independent, The Guardian, Loaded, Intersection, Red, FHM, Architects' Journal, T3, Stuff and Elle Deco (Netherlands), broadcasting on various BBC radio programmes and appearing on TV including Good Food Live and a gadget review show on UKTV. I also previously subedited the McKinsey Quarterly, wrote and edited pamphlets and the quarterly journal at Demos and taught journalism at Richmond American International University. I have also served as a trustee for the VPS, winning a British Medical Association award for web design, and the London Parks & Gardens Trust, which produces Open Garden Squares Weekend.


For fun, I collect:
