Emily Mur­phy, se­nior as­so­ciate in dis­pute res­o­lu­tion, Moulis Le­gal

WHAT IS YOUR ROLE?

I help busi­nesses man­age and re­solve com­mer­cial dis­putes such as con­trac­tual dis­putes be­tween two par­ties, ne­go­ti­at­ing set­tle­ments and rep­re­sent­ing clients in court pro­ceed­ings.

WHAT DO YOU EN­JOY MOST?

I love the whole process of re­solv­ing dis­putes – ne­go­ti­at­ing and find­ing a solution and help­ing clients work toward that solution. It’s got a prob­lem solv­ing as­pect I re­ally like.

QUAL­I­FI­CA­TIONS?

Bach­e­lor of Laws with hon­ours and Bach­e­lor of In­ter­na­tional Busi­ness. I am also study­ing a Master of Law.

WHY IS PRO­DUC­TIV­ITY IM­POR­TANT?

It’s im­por­tant for our clients. If I am not be­ing pro­duc­tive and am too dis­tracted, things don’t get done on time and we don’t achieve the out­comes our clients want.

HOW DO YOU STAY PRO­DUC­TIVE?

I keep a notepad on my desk with a running list of things I need to do.

If I take a phone call, I quickly write down the task that comes from that so it’s al­ways vis­i­ble. I try to or­gan­ise my day so I do the most press­ing and com­plex tasks when I know I am go­ing to be most pro­duc­tive then I save some­thing eas­ier for when I might be fad­ing a bit. When I do feel I am go­ing off course, I cre­ate space to con­cen­trate on what needs to get done.
