Harriet Betteridge, Senior Solicitor - Legal Content 

When did you start at Arken? 10 January 2022
Responsible for: Knowing the law!
Happiest when: Running on trails in the sunshine.
Where is your favourite place to be? On top of a hill looking out at a beautiful view with friends.
Best place you've travelled to? That’s a tough question. Most recently (pre-pandemic) I’d have to plump for New Zealand. Incredible scenery, delicious food and wine, great running, and I also got to see one of my oldest friends who I hadn’t seen for years.
How would you best describe Arken? A forward looking company with drive to revolutionise the estate planning world for the better.
This year I will mostly be? Training for the Long Course Weekend – an Ironman triathlon in Wales with the disciplines split over three days.
Top productivity tip? Eat the big frog. It’s so easy to put off doing the task you really don’t want to do by wrongly prioritising other tasks but once you’ve got started it is never as bad as anticipated.
Something you learned in the last week? That there are more acronyms than words in developers’ vocabulary – I’ve so much to learn!
Why have you made the move into legal technology? There is so much potential for the legal professional through adopting tech solutions, and I want to be part of bringing about the change.
