The Remote Expert


I am Emma Heuston, Head Honcho of the Remote Expert, lawyer and author.

Remote work is not only my business, it is my passion.

I received recognition in the legal industry for my in-roads in the remote work space in 2018 when I won the 2018 Lawyers Weekly Women in Law Thought leader of the Year Award.

2019 has seen more industry award nominations via being named as a finalist in the Australian Law Awards Regional Law Firm of the Year and Sole Practitioner of the Year Categories for the Remote Expert.

With postgraduate qualifications in organisational change management and human resources, I understand what makes a business tick and how remote work can improve your bottom line.

I also pride myself on cutting the B.S and speaking to you in language you can understand in the most efficient way possible.

I have a passion for helping others. In my 19 years as a lawyer I have helped many people overcome difficult times and come out the other end stronger and more resilient.

In 2018 I published a book, “The Tracksuit Economy – how to work productively and effectively from home”, documenting the years I worked remotely at partner equivalent in a law firm.
