F&L’s Melissa Harkcom shortlisted for ‘Woman in Business’ in the inaugural Transatlantic Growth Awards 2018

San Francisco, CA, February 26, 2018 – the Transatlantic Growth (TAG) Awards 2018 announced today that it has shortlisted Melissa Harkcom for the Woman in Business Silver Award. The Award is the first of its kind to honor the women in the US and the UK who are making a significant impact on the growth of transatlantic trade and development.

About Melissa

Melissa’s appointment as Director of North America in 2010 has proved crucial to the business over the past 8 years, influencing the entire firm’s business development strategy. Prior to joining F&L, Melissa trained and qualified as a lawyer in the UK but through both family ties and previous work roles, she had spent lots of time in the US and gained a detailed understanding of the business culture on both sides of the Atlantic.

Melissa was tasked with opening F&L’s first office outside of the UK and in August 2010, she relocated with her family to San Francisco.

Melissa enjoys a rare mix of skills - her legal training allows her to appreciate the complexities and challenges of providing a professional service to clients, whilst her natural networking and marketing skills mean she can successfully develop relationships and identify opportunities for both clients and F&L. 

“Melissa has set the standard for global expansion advice,” said F&L Partner, Kiki Stannard. “Being shortlisted for this transatlantic Woman in Business award is a testament to the skill, practical approach and service excellence that Melissa provides.”
