In 2018, Phoebe became Partner and General Manager of the firm. After the assignment of her duties, her main objective was and is a gradual upgrade of the company to meet the current needs of the market. To date, one of the main upgrades was the introduction of an e-management system that digitalized and automated most of the administrative work of the company and staff in order to save time, minimize errors, monitor deadlines and inform speedily on a daily basis clients. Furthermore, she has undertaken and completed the digitalization and archiving of the firms library counting currently more than 5000 law books, which are a powerful tool for the company's lawyers.
