AA Background and Contact Details

Written By: The Manager

 The Anonymous Assistant is written by a real lawyer working in the litigation department of a City law firm: me.

I fit my writing around my day job where only a few of my colleagues know of my secret double life.   The events and characters I depict are entirely fictional but many of the scenarios are drawn from my experiences of working in several City firms. 

The AA began life in legal section of The Times in 2003, where it ran on an ad hoc basis during 2004.   In 2005 a new push in the new media services led to it being commissioned to run on the online legal section as a fortnightly column.  There it received rave reviews and now it has a site all of its own.  

My aim is to bring a little light relief to those of us floundering at the bottom of the  commercial food chain.   I hope I have succeeded.
