Established in 2010, this firm now has around 70 Partners across two offices. Most of their Partners have joined from City firms. They operate a solicitors' firm, structured like a barristers' chambers which make for a client-focused approach.
For an entrepreneurial, commercially minded solicitor looking to move away from billings targets, politics and a lack of prospects while boosting your practice and income, this is a golden opportunity.
Most Partners would increase their earnings at this firm. This is made possible by the firm's low level of fee share retained by the LLP. Earnings that are complimented by having a flexible and fulfilling working life.
By way of example, a £500k following would often not allow you to secure Partnership at a leading City firm, but it leads to a very substantial income with this opportunity.
This is the innovative firm of choice for leading lawyers seeking 'something different'.
They operate from London and a base in the South West, however, you can work flexibly from home/from one of their offices to service clients or collaborate with other Partners at the firm.
This firm offers a unique and refreshing opportunity for you to take control of your career, gaining autonomy and flexibility while not compromising either the quality of your practice or the credibility of your CV. Moreover, most lawyers joining the firm will increase their earnings from the level received in a traditional/City private practice or in-house role.
This firm's lawyers have a background in the top tier of City and regional private practice law firms.
This firm is interested in speaking with Intellectual Property Partners looking for 'something different'.
The firm has a strong Intellectual Property & Technology team, currently home to 9 heavy-hitting Partners, and they're looking for more to join their team.
They work across contentious and non-contentious IP matters, as well as all aspects of Technology. They also handle matters of IT and communications outsourcing.
Generally speaking, the firm covers all major commercial practice areas, and its client list includes many household names as well as exciting early-stage businesses.
The firm's Partners compete against and regularly acts opposite Top 50 and US practices, and in this respect, the firm considers itself to be unique among UK firms structured along non-traditional lines.
Given this is a self-employed opportunity' by way of a fee split model it's clearly a benefit to have clients to bring, however, if you're an expert business developer with a proven track record, this should be enough as there is work to refer internally to lawyers within this practice area.
Such is the strength of the firm's offering, and the cohesion of its team and culture, those that have come without a significant client base have been able to build a practice within a few months.
These include senior associates as well as those who are already Partners.
The firm's priority is the calibre and character of the individual rather than the promise of fees - good lawyers flourish at the firm through a combination of firm and individual marketing, teamwork and internal referrals.
They are currently very busy and are particularly keen to hear from Intellectual Property Partners (Contentious or non-contentious).
If you are a Partner in Intellectual Property and are keen to find out more, please feel free to apply or give Charlie at JMC Legal Recruitment a call for a confidential conversation.
