Marketing Director

Kelsey Farish

Originally from the Seattle area, Kelsey earned her undergraduate degree in politics and economics at Washington State University in 2010. She then moved to London in late 2011 to pursue her masters degree in European Union law and government at the London School of Economics. After falling in love with the city (and a certain English bloke who later became her husband) Kelsey chose to stay in London to pursue her legal career. Having qualified as a solicitor in 2018, she now specialises in commercial and corporate deals, with a particular focus on technology and media clients. Kelsey joined AWLL because she genuinely believes in its mission to support fellow women attorneys, and appreciates the importance of developing a strong professional network - especially when living abroad.
