the fold icons


Emma “grew up” in big law firms, both in Australia and internationally, but she found her niche at The Fold. As CEO she makes sure that we have the right building blocks for future growth and success, our people have all the tools to reach their full potential and our clients receive expert and timely advice. Emma applies a ‘people first’ approach to both clients and staff, helping us deliver a great client experience and create a happy and motivated place to work.

With Emma at the helm, we’re in safe hands. She’s known for her considered strategic decisions, broad operational perspective and collaborative approach. She supports our lawyers with the ‘business of lawyering’, allowing them to focus on what they do best – providing our clients with excellent legal advice.

While Emma’s comfortable to let others shine, she’s a born leader. She takes people along on her journey, gives everyone the recognition they deserve and creates a culture that empowers us all to be our best.

While there isn’t much time left between work and family, Emma relaxes with yoga and plenty of healthy living. But she’s no saint – you can always tempt her with a cheeky glass of red wine or chocolate.


Failure is the condiment that gives success its flavour.
