Managing Associate

Sally Johnston

Managing Associate

What gets me out of bed in the morning

Working with clients who are doing fascinating and often ground-breaking things that they are passionate about, alongside colleagues who want to enjoy themselves whilst they’re at work. The combination makes for a brilliantly collaborative and engaging environment.​

An entrepreneur I admire

Jo Malone. From humble beginnings she combined creativity and determination to achieve huge success, and reminds me of the bravery it takes to go it alone. Hopefully at Ignition we can help de-mystify some of the commercial and legal complexities that entrepreneurs in such a position might face.​

The fine print

  • Key practices: Corporate & commercial
  • Education and training: University of Nottingham (BA Hons), Nottingham Law School, BPP
  • Legal roles: Herbert Smith Freehills (London, Moscow and Sydney)
  • Client secondments: Tabcorp (Sydney)
  • Other interests: Interested in corporate social responsibility, and a keen skier and cyclist
