Partner with strong client skills helps win new business for global law firm
Our client, a full service global offshore law firm, headquartered in Jersey, needed help planning for the retirement of a key partner.
The problem: finding a successor for Dispute Resolution Partner
The firm, with over 400 staff and 50 partners, advises financial, institutional, corporate and private clients in many jurisdictions around the world. Facing the imminent retirement of a Dispute Resolution Partner with a large client roster, they needed to hire a successor with their own client following and exceptionally strong client relationship management skills.
The solution: tailored search and selection of candidates with strong client skills
Maven Partners immediately set about forming a close working relationship with the Managing Partner and Dispute Resolution team to clearly identify the firm’s needs. This enabled our experienced in-house research team to conduct a thorough and far-ranging search for candidates, making use of our globe-spanning network and deep industry knowledge.
The results: new partner wins business and grows team into core practice area
An established partner was found to head up the Dispute Resolution team within 3 months. Possessing excellent client relationship management skills, the new partner managed to win several new clients in the first 12 months of joining, and has since recruited a further associate. The team continues to grow and is becoming one of the firm’s core practice areas.
