The firm

This top tier, Legal 500 and Chambers ranked firm, are truly unique in the market. Despite being a modest 75 members of staff, they punch well above their weight and they often act on the other side of Magic and Silver circle firms. Their Lawyers are innovative and entrepreneurial and are true sector specialists. They are highly profitable and have just had their three best years in the firm's history, with record turnover in the last financial year. With a strong management team, great infrastructure, support staff who have been in post for many years with a passion for providing fee earners with the support they need, this all allows this team to deal with work that other similar sized firms would be unable to even comprehend.

There is a positive feel throughout the firm, a cohesive culture and investment in their workforce is testament to this unheard-of retention record. Most of their Partners are homegrown, they do not have billings or billable hours target but take a much more common-sense approach to billings. This refreshing approach allows them to really focus on service, clients and work. Rather than the usual gripes of the typical private practice firm.

The practice is a full multiservice offering, their niche and what their reputation has been built on is media law, although this is not exclusively the only sector, they deal in. They work with some of the largest global superstars on the talent side, this client base must be seen to be believed.

Through getting to know this firm, what personally really stands out to me is their open and transparent culture, they really care about the staff that work there and nurture Lawyers to become the best they can possibly be. Partners are on hand and mentor their staff to ensure that the next generation of firm's management continue to take the firm from strength to strength.

When interviewing even junior candidates, Partners are seeking that spark of a potential leader.
