Yesterday we launched our new business, Teal Compliance. If you've ever met me in person you will have seen there is an unmistakable affiliation with the colour. It is always about my person somewhere, bags, clothes, hats, jewellery.
Why do we like certain colours? I've not done any research, I am sure lots of people have a view, tested scientifically. For me it is an instinct. I have green eyes and it's always been my favourite, but over time, I've been drawn to Teal.
I had a hard start to my career in Law, in at the deep end, little support and huge responsibility. It was scary! I survived and thrived post qualification in a well run firm, with proper support. A firm wanting to do well by its clients and its people.
Whilst fee earning remained high pressured, I learnt over time to deal with these pressures, by communicating, sharing, and ensuring I tackled problems head on, pushing myself sometimes outside my comfort zone.
Teal to me is a calming, reassuring colour. It is that combination between green and blue. Green, a forest, strong and supportive. Blue, the ocean, fluid and adaptable, sometimes dramatic, sometimes soothing.
It is fashionable at the moment; but my love of Teal is long standing, it will endure because it represents who I am, who my team are.

We offer frank appraisals and real life experience (I think over 100 years combined so far), we know your business, we've run law firms, we've done fee earning, we've managed people, we run financially stable businesses of our own.
