In late 2022, Renee Roumanos lost her home
(and office) to a fire. That traumatic experience taught her an
enormous amount about navigating traumatic experiences, leaning on
one’s professional network, and how best to prioritise, manage and
communicate within one’s business.
In this episode of The Boutique Lawyer Show, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Renee Roumanos Legal principal Renee Roumanos to discuss the night her home (and office) burnt down and the insurance headaches that followed, having to look after her family and figure out how to keep her new business afloat, how she came to lean on legal professionals around her, and the perspective she has gleaned from going through such extraordinary circumstances.
Ms Roumanos also reflects on how one begins to take practical steps forward after such events, the difficulties that lawyers have in asking for personal or professional help, how she ensured that her firm did not suffer and how she engaged with clients during this time, her perspective on what it means to be a good lawyer and communicator, what she’s learnt about resilience, and why she’s so motivated to give back moving forward.
