Employee Spotlight: John Randle22nd August 2022 4:03 pm Comments Off on Employee Spotlight: John Randle
John Randle has specialised in Family Law for over 30 years and is recognised by the Chambers and Partners legal directory as a ‘family expert’. In this interview, John talks about his work, his motivations – and of course, his favourite football team!
What kinds of Family Law work do you do?
Over the years, I have acted for clients from all walks of life who require legal advice and guidance in relation to their divorce, separation or other family matters. In recent years, I have specialised particularly in high-profile and complex financial cases, with one or both partners usually possessing substantial wealth and assets held in complicated financial structures. I also have significant experience in international surrogacy matters.
Why did you choose Family Law?
Because it provides an opportunity to help people through incredibly tough times and make a real difference to their lives. Clients come to me at an extremely stressful time when they are perhaps feeling vulnerable or unsure who to turn to. A substantial part of my work is standing up for and advocating for my clients when they feel most unable to and giving them the reassurance and guidance, they need to move forwards.
What motivates you?
I think it follows on from the previous question, really; I am motivated to deliver the outcome my clients need to move forwards with their lives. At a time of uncertainty, I can bring much-needed objectivity and clarity that helps my clients see the bigger picture and understand all the options available. Delivering that best scenario outcome and seeing a client’s relief at the end of the process is definitely a significant motivator.
What does good client service mean for you?
In my line of work, I think it’s all about giving clients confidence that you’re working in their best interests. When somebody’s financial security and emotional wellbeing are on the line, it’s important to keep in touch, listen to their concerns and really work to deliver an outcome that’s tailored to their circumstances and hopes for the future.
How do you spend your time out of the office?
I like to keep active and enjoy new experiences. For example, I love to travel and enjoy learning new languages. When I do sit down, I enjoy watching the tennis and football – especially when I’m supporting my team, Aston Villa!
