Recovering lawyer, mum, and tech entrepreneur: Claudia King on the importance of finding your spirit animals in the law

Recently Claudia King, CEO + Founder of Automio, and Clarissa Rayward from the ‘Happy Lawyer Happy Life Podcast’ had a chat about all things legal innovation.

Claudia has always been known as a colourful, creative, entrepreneurial, legal industry disruptor. In this podcast episode you'll hear Claudia share her story about her former lawyer life - as a tax consultant in Auckland in her early years (yes a tax consultant!), going into partnership with her Dad in a traditional law practice as the two of them explored how they could use technology to improve their service, and founding Legal Beagle - New Zealand's first online legal service.

Claudia also openly talks about the events that caused her to re-assess and re-think parts of her life. She explains what led her to leaving the law and founding a legal-tech company, how she has found her way through hardships, how she juggles home and work life, her happiness tips, and the importance of finding your spirit animals in the law.
