Natasha Harrison

Fostering, advancing and accelerating diversity is core to Natasha’s business strategy and at the heart of the London office of Boies Schiller Flexner, which she built from scratch. Natasha is a leading international disputes lawyer, one of few women to head up a major international law firm, and the only UK woman to be running a US law Firm. She has built a UK team with more than 40% female partners and is a supporter of The Brokerage, a charity creating internship opportunities for candidates from diverse and under-privileged backgrounds. As part of her strategic vision for the firm, Natasha has appointed a dedicated Diversity and Inclusion officer, introduced a firm-wide diversity budget and targets for female and minority representation in leadership positions. Committed to the development of young female lawyers, Natasha has made a public stand about how firms can bridge the issue of inequality. Externally, Natasha mentors a number of high-flying women looking to return to the workplace. She has also counselled women through discriminatory dismissals.
