About Ruth O'Regan

Ruth is excited to move back into private practice, after 8 years in-house with EY. Ruth’s experience as a trusted in-house advisor means that she is well-versed in providing practical, business-oriented legal advice – often on very short timeframes.

Ruth also passionately believes in Leman’s culture of diversity and inclusiveness and has a career-long interest in the issue of women in the workforce. In that vein, Ruth is delighted to join a team where she can mentor and develop her more junior colleagues.

Outside of work, Ruth spends most of her time with her (very!) young family. That being said, she enjoys combining family life with interests such as the cinema, socialising, the gym and generally catching up with friends and family.
