Managing this Role


Charlie Simpkin

Senior Recruitment Consultant - London
0203 865 2113

This is the innovative law firm of choice for Lawyers seeking something different in the region.
This firm is like no other in the area. They are a boutique, specialist, commercial outfit. They punch at the same level as heavyweight, top international US/City practice. It is commonplace for their Lawyers to be working on the other side of Legal 500 ranked Lawyers.

The Firm

Being part of this firm is more like being on the inside of your client's business, rather than a typical external private practice lawyer. Their lawyers act more in a way that an in-house lawyer operates; they act as an internal part of the business function. Due to the level of client interaction and interesting work, their Lawyers stay at the firm and do not leave. For this reason, they rarely recruit, making this an exciting opportunity.

The practice focuses less on billable hours/targets, and more on delivering a top-quality service. It's this client centric approach which makes them the first choice for clients. They often act more as business advisors, than just "typical Lawyers".

You will find that departments work closely together, and there is a real essence of teamwork and collaboration. Often their matters involve the work of several departments working on the one transaction.

The practice houses a vast array of clients spanning many different industry sectors. You will find both National and International clients, of varying sizes, but large Corporate deals are their speciality. Many of their deals can span upwards of a year.

The practice places a real emphasis on quality and adding real value to client matters. This is well demonstrated by the fact that the firm receives most of its work through referrals and repeat business.

You will find a relaxed and adult culture; there is no hierarchy or bureaucracy. Staff input into the running of the firm is encouraged; everyone has a voice; it's this open door and inclusive ethos, which is a major driving factor in their continued success.

If you're uninspired by the monotony of ordinary law firms but don't want to sacrifice the quality of work or the ability of your co-workers, then this is the firm for you.
