What we do

Partners & team moves
We have extremely strong relationships with partners at the leading US, UK and international law firms. Many of our clients work with us exclusively ensuring that we have access to unique opportunities to move/hire. Our partner search team have been responsible for some of the most highly publicised lateral hires across the market. Our track record of placing partners and teams is unrivalled.  We understand the nuances, the need for absolute confidentiality and the sensitivities around these sometimes-difficult moves.  We will advise on everything ranging from, financial and strategy business plans to lateral partner questionnaires. We will advise and guide on the commercial drivers, manage expectations and work to ensure the success of the move/hire.

Office openings
Our team advise and guide law firms on the logistics required when opening in new locations. An understanding of the local market is key and through our unique international approach and network we are able to offer insight to markets around the globe. We have worked with numerous law firms globally to open offices in new locations. We are leaders in this unique space. Finding the right lawyer to lead a new office and the right legal talent to support them is crucial. We work in partnership with our clients to tailor the search and the entire process is approached with complete discretion.

Mergers
In the fast-evolving modern legal market, a merger can usher in a new era of growth while improving a law firm’s global offering and brand. Our experienced team will guide our clients through identifying potential merger partners, timing considerations for merger, whilst dealing with confidentiality, due diligence, client conflicts and other sensitive areas in a merger discussions.

Due diligence
Due diligence reports on senior-level executives in other sectors have long been a standard part of hiring and are becoming increasingly common in the legal profession. Making the wrong partner hiring decision or  failure to integrate,  can derail business plans, impact on revenue and strategy, and may require a further expensive search to put it right. Our independent and impartial report at offer stage provides reassurance to proceed with the appointment, or in some circumstances might highlight red flags or areas that require further consideration.
