Cooper Fitch partnered with a leading local law firm who were looking to develop a new team, from partner level to support staff. Whilst they had someone overseeing the department, the demand for a team dedicated solely to Arbitration was now a requirement.
Project goals and objectives:
The goal of the small project was to source a new team who could work collaboratively and cohesively from joining, as can be the challenge with a fresh team.
The objective was to put a Partner in place and work with them in order to identify the necessities and requirements for the vast volume of work that had outgrown the current DR team.
For this task, we worked closely with the Managing Partner and existing DR Partner in order to identify the best fit for a department head. The expectation for this position was particularly high considering the requirement for an accomplished professional who was also able to drive Business Development and smoothly transition the existing business.
From here, we were able to put in place an agreed strategy for attracting Associate and Support professionals, as well as ensuring that they were the correct fit for long-term business growth.
Successfully put in place a Department Head and sourced 2 mid level and one junior member within the team.
Thank you for your enquiry. A member of our team will be in touch with you shortly.
