Alicia Koch

Alicia Koch is an admitted attorney with over 10 years PQE. She has worked in law firms, has had her own legal consulting company and has been an in-house legal counsel for a number of both global and local institutions. However, her passion has always been in researching a topic - finding out its' "Why" and more so, in writing articles, blogs or any other form of written content. She considers herself a "Renaissance Woman" (in training), with an absolute passion for the written word, music, art and all things beautiful.

In keeping with this topic of beauty, and keeping in mind her love of the written word, Alicia has (since the difficult start of 2020), started a content management company called "The Legal Bellatrist" (belle-lettres is a category of writing, originally meaning beautiful or fine writing. The writer thereof is therefore a belletrist). Alicia hopes that in embodying the role of "The Legal Belletrist", she will be able to do just that - write fine legal (and other) articles.
