Job Details

Your new company
Long-established and very well-regarded in its core field, my market-leading client has significant on-the-ground UK coverage and additionally drives an expanding international network. Financial advisory work is primarily lawyer-led, with financial services being secondary referrers. Expanding beyond their core business over the years into other specialisms such as valuations, corporate finance and property, this has also included some regional presence in forensics. The firm is now ready to "power up" to a more holistic Forensic offering, starting with further developing London and the south, but with a potentially "ambassadorial" role to the national and international networks.
Your new role The firm are serious about engaging with Commercial Disputes/Expert Partners as well as those in Fraud. There is considerable "low-hanging fruit" and untapped opportunity to be derived from the network which existing forensic partners have partly but not yet wholly capitalised on, and need further critical mass to do so. A national P&L for the service-line means there are no particular geographic restrictions and accreditation/reward is set up to recognise contribution in every sense - introduction, origination, delivery etc. The firm will also then use its enhanced critical mass in Forensic to expand into other associated services - if you have ideas on "Forensic plus plus" these will be seriously considered.
What you'll need to succeed
The firm can consider a first-promotion Partner seasoned/experienced. This is expansion per se, and because more than one hire/acquisition will be made this is a rare chance to help shape the future of the functional leadership.
Partners should of course be UK based with an identifiable and portable practice therein.

What you'll get in return

  • An ambitious firm which is looking to grow by 25% over the next 5 years and not just by acquisition.
  • A simple and transparent reward system (inc. options, LTIPs etc)
  • With no audit/tax base, minimal conflicts
  • A brand which is large enough in its core space to mean it's never "whitespace" to sell, yet small enough still in Forensic to be a genuine growth opportunity
  • The opportunity to meaningfully shape the function and develop it into associated services when ready
