99 Challenges – Prevention is better than cure

Legal essentials for growing businesses

Vanessa was delighted to be featured on the 99 Challenges podcast with Anywhere Consulting. The episode focuses on the legal matters that every business owner should attend. We dive deep into the first steps you should focus on as a just-starting business. We discuss when to expand your legal options and hire an internal solicitor or an external law office. We also discuss the main missteps you can make if you don’t treat legal matters as a preventive measure.


You Want To Do What? 

`”We chat with Vanessa Challess about founding her own law firm with the goal of doing everything as differently from the traditional law firms as she could. We chat about how to get into the industry, as well as changes that are being brought in to open up the industry to a wider audience, offering different routes to qualification, such as Cylex and periods of qualifying experience. We also talk about the day to day life of a lawyer, the positives, negatives and salary expectations within the industry. If your thinking about getting into law this is a must listen, Vanessa gives loads of great advice about how to stand out and get started in the industry. A real pleasure to chat with Vanessa.”


Tiger Law does things differently. We are a new breed of law firm driving change and inclusivity in the legal profession.

We don’t just talk about diversity and inclusion, we practise it everyday.

Remote Law Life - Episode 2 with Vanessa Challess

Remote Law Life is a mini-series of interviews with legal professionals who are bossing remote working. If we’re serious about building back better, we need to embrace new models of leadership that empower people rather than limit them. It’s good for us, it’s good for our teams, it’s good for our families, it’s good for our societies, it’s good for our planet and it’s good for business.

In episode 2, Daisy is joined by the one and only Tiger Queen, Vanessa Challess. Vanessa founded Tiger Law from her home in 2017. Since then, she has lead a mixed team of remote, office-based and hybrid workers. Vanessa is a feminist lawyer who advocates for equality in life and law. She is also a champion for Neurodiversity in Law.
