Senior Associates; Corporate Law
Are you finding that your firm is increasingly struggling to attract junior ranks and support staff? Is it a lack of ‘brand power’, ambition or flexibility? Or is it the culture coming from the top down?
Whatever the reason, that lack of support is no doubt directly impacting on you.
This impact may be overt.
- Lack of balance – working longer and harder due to inefficiencies.
- Lack of enjoyment in your role as you handle menial tasks that would be better done by juniors or even paralegals.
It can also be more insidious, particularly as you push for more senior ranks.
- So much time working ‘in’ and practice often means there’s no time to work ‘on’ a practice.
- Are you able to market your personal brand or business develop to the level you need to build your own business case for conversion?
Despite the shortages in quality corporate lawyers and associates there are firms that are attracting and, critically, retaining people at this level. There are also firms that are investing in systems and human capital to make support functions most efficient.
If you bring 5+ yrs’ PAE in corproate law and would like to discuss which platforms would suit you and your motivators best, let’s discuss in confidence.
I can give you details around those corproate teams that are doing this better than others – be that at the top-tier, global, mid-tier or specialist boutique level. Options across listed and unlisted M&A deals are available, as are those with ECM, Funds and governance focuses.
