Mellissa Larkin always wanted to be a lawyer and prior to establishing Peripheral Blue in 2016, Mellissa worked for many years in international and premier firms in Australia and Ireland and in-house with large corporations.
Mellissa has a broad skill set, combining the expertise developed in top-tier law firms including training as a mediator, paired with the best qualities and experience of an in-house lawyer. After nearly 20 years in the industry, Mellissa still loved being a lawyer but realised the traditional legal model was broken – there had to be a better way
In 2016 she founded Peripheral Blue Legal and Peripheral Blue Consulting with the aim of creating a company that would make a difference – to its clients’ businesses, to their experience with legal and consulting services, and to the services industry itself.
Peripheral Blue Legal and Peripheral Blue Consulting are a law firm and a consulting firm with a difference. We offer flexible, cost-efficient and collaborative services for businesses, in-house legal teams and law firms.
