Davinia Gransbury, a partner and head of Wragge & Co’s dispute resolution group, has been named in the 2013 Power Part-Time list, a roll call featuring 50 powerful UK executives who all happen to work part time or flexibly.
The list was put together by Timewise Foundation, a social business that champions the social and business benefits of creating good-quality flexible working opportunities.
Co-founder Karen Mattison MBE built the list to ‘shine a light’ on modern-day patterns of work, after taking nominations from all around the UK. Mattison aims to de-mystify the process of climbing the career ladder while working flexibly.
The initiative has the backing of EY and six executive search firms.
One of only five people in the legal sector on the list, Gransbury works four days a week, choosing to do so because it enables her to spend time with her three young children and support her family. She became a partner at Wragge & Co in 1999 and has worked on a part-time basis for 14 years. As head of the dispute resolution group, consisting of some 200 people including teams in Munich and Guangzhou, Gransbury sits on the firm’s management board.
