Elevate Your Practice
We appreciate that our consultants have different designs on how they want to develop their practices. We offer complete flexibility through our platform recognising that the autonomy of our consultants to work how and when they like is fundamental to the decision to become a consultant with us. Some like to manage clients and matters on their own and keep a flexible approach to when and how they work and others are interested in growing their practices and using junior resource for larger instructions. We cater for these different approaches and anything in between.
Whichever way you would like to grow your practice, we are committed to supporting our consultant community. We have a dedicated Consultant Development Manager working with our consultants to understand your client base and assist with introductions, referrals and promoting expertise.
Acuity Pod – Support and Resource
We have spent a lot of time thinking about how best to support those who wish to grow their practices and how we can help effectively resource work. For those consultants who want to grow their practices and need a wider team round them, managing fee earners can result in a significant investment of time and so simple referral fees may not serve as adequate compensation. Therefore, we have developed Acuity Pod. Acuity Pod provides both junior and senior employed resource to consultants to assist them with larger or complex matters, regular or repeat client instructions and procedural matters.
Acuity Pod is flexible, scalable, and agile and can be structured in different ways depending on a consultant’s needs ranging from ad hoc resource to legal secondments.
Succession planning is typically an area that is left until very late, typically because our industry doesn’t tend to recognise goodwill and lawyers have traditionally accepted that when they stop working, they stop earning. We believe there is a different way to approach this and that the sweat equity that consultants invest in their client relationships should be remunerated. We are always flexible in our approach and will help structure such arrangements tax efficiently where possible. Our succession planning options include practice acquisition and payment of goodwill for client relationship.
