Our client is a young firm with ten years trading history with a strong growth curve and impressive growth targets. Led by an entrepreneur, this firm has doubled its turnover during the last two years reaching a run rate of approximately £4m. The owner of this firm has been investing rather than stripping profits like most law firms; which has facilitated this growth. Further projected growth is likely to see this firm double in size within the next 18 months so aside from further lateral hires, acquisitions are likely.
To date, the financial management of the firm has been conducted by a legal sector specialist finance management outsourced business and the owner wishes to bring this in house by recruiting an individual who has experience working within a law practice environment and the knowledge to run the finance team, work on whole firm budgeting and have strategic input. Culturally, this will suit a person with entrepreneurial spirit themselves because the youth and ambition within the management board means this firm is going to go through several growth cycles that will be an exciting ride!
If you think you have the experience and personality to thrive in this sort of environment, please get in touch confidentially.
