Corporate Legal Controller
“I enjoy anything that has to do with meeting new people from different backgrounds, as I have a wide range of interests. Working at Goodwille is exciting as it allows me to do exactly that – I am part of a wonderful multicultural team that supports clients from different countries and sectors, helping make their company’s presence in the UK stronger. I look forward to walking into the office everyday, which makes getting up in the morning a lot more pleasurable.”
As a Corporate Legal Controller, Tessa is responsible for ensuring a number of compliance-related matters run smoothly: ranging from the filing of annual accounts and corporation tax over data protection registrations and Companies House appointments to insurance-related matters. Tessa also deals with a number of other day-to-day Company Secretarial issues, including liaising with our German-speaking clients regarding their UK incorporation and practical matters such as bank account openings or setting up phone contracts.
Tessa believes in giving back to the community: having a law degree, she acts as a board member to an Austrian NGO for strategic human rights litigation and is a proactive board member of her Master’s alumni association, where she currently works on the development of the alumni network via local hubs. Tessa’s more leisurely free-time activities include cooking and baking as well as visiting modern theatre productions and modern art museums.
