Having led the firm for 15 years as Managing Partner and CEO, I am now working to develop new service lines and business ventures which complement the expert legal services delivered by the firm, particularly for the benefit of clients in our core industry sectors. This work will build on a number of successful venture launches by the firm during my years of firm leadership.
Models for the delivery of legal services are developing rapidly, combining advances in technology, greater flexibility in regulatory and business models, new forms of collaboration with clients, and greater access to external resources including funding. These change themes provide the basis for specialist firms to develop wholly new approaches to service delivery, building new forms of value for clients and other stakeholders. Working with colleagues across a number of our specialist areas and with external partners, I am working to develop a pipeline of new service and product ventures.
