We are working with a number of “dispersed” digital law firms; some newly established, some riding the wave of flexibility and efficiency which has made them popular with their Partners and their Partners’ clients for years. All are entrepreneurial and ambitious, and most offer the same services clients have come to expect from more traditional firms, using technology and modern working practices to allow lawyers a more bespoke, dynamic, and efficient way of delivering legal services to their clients.
During the past 12 months’ pandemic disruption the model has thrived, as the technology and culture necessary to successfully offer services to clients away from central city offices is well entrenched. All have grown during the lockdowns; no need to freeze recruitment due to the difficulty of interviewing and inducting new staff, and their clients don’t care that their lawyers are not working from a glass tower in the City. Rather they are grateful for the easy and flexible access and their lawyers’ responsiveness (and the lack of overheads usually reflected in lower bills).
A dispersed law firm may suit you if:
- You are an experienced lawyer;
- You are frustrated by the politics and administrative burden which sometimes comes with Partnership at a traditional law firm;
- You want to offer your clients a responsive, commercial, and cost-effective legal service in a flexible and value-added manner;
- You are entrepreneurial and have strong levels of empathy and emotional intelligence;
- You have a background in advising clients relating to one of more areas of law including: Asset Finance; Asset Management/Funds; Aviation; Banking & Finance; Biotech; Capital Markets; Competition; Construction; Commercial; Compliance; Corporate; Corporate Secretarial; Data Protection; Derivatives; Dispute Resolution; Employment; Energy; Environment/Planning; Financial Services; Infrastructure; Insolvency & Restructuring; Insurance; IP/IT; ISDA; Islamic Finance; Litigation; Logistics; Media; Off Shore; Patents; Pensions; Private Client; Private Equity; Procurement; Professional Negligence; Project Finance; Commercial Property; Residential Property; Regulatory; Shipping; Structured Finance; Tax; Telecommunications; Transport; Trusts; US Securities.
It’s not necessary that you currently hold the “Partner” badge, but you must have a strong personal following and/or book of contacts. Many of our dispersed clients have years of experience helping new Partners make the transition, and many have dedicated teams and who will assist you in making the most out of your existing networks.
If the model is of interest to you, Jameson Legal will be hosting an engaging and informative panel discussion on Zoom with the leaders of five cutting-edge distributed law firms on 21 April at 2:15pm. If this is of interest, please register here: Webinar Registration – Zoom
