Bridget Prosser - Partner, employment law
Our question: Which area of law do you specialise in?
Bridget's response: Employment law.
Our question: In five words describe the work you do?
Bridget's response: Rewarding, challenging, strategic, relationships, enjoyable.
Our question: What has been your career highlight to date?
Bridget's response: Can I have two as they are so different? Joining the NHSLA (now NHSR) Equal Pay Steering group and acting for a claimant in one of the first age discrimination claims in Tribunal. We had to fight at every stage to the extent where I honesty wondered if I had got it wrong and everyone telling me we would lose, was right.
Our question: Tell us something about yourself other probably don’t know.
Bridget's response: I have served lunch to the Duke and Duchess of Kent.
Our question: What could you give a 40-minute presentation on with absolutely no preparation?
Bridget's response: How to make a great gin and tonic.
Our question: What’s the best way to start the day?
Bridget's response: So the answer I want to give is to wake up to gentle yoga stretching and meditation, an invigorating walk with my dog and thereafter a macro biotitic breakfast. But honestly, get up as late as possible and drink loads of strong coffee.
Our question: What mystery do you wish you knew the answer to?
Bridget's response: Where do the socks go? They went in to the washing machine as a pair and only one comes out. How does that happen?
Our question: Did you always want to be a lawyer?
Bridget's response: Yes. It struck me as a great career where I could put my arguing skills with my siblings to good use.
