Things have come full circle for Catherine

When Catherine applied for her first in-house role in Japan the advertisement appeared in Law Talk, the New Zealand Law Society’s monthly publication for lawyers in New Zealand. Things have come full circle and it is fortuitous that some 16 years later an article about Catherine journey since securing that first role up to setting up practice in Japan, should appear in the same publication. The article appears pages 46-49.
