Advising a niche law firm

Roxburgh Milkins Limited, since 2007

Challenge

This niche corporate and commercial law firm was founded in 2003 by two experienced lawyers with a shared belief that there must be a better, more flexible, more collaborative, more truly client-focused way to run a successful firm, for businesses and entrepreneurs. Along with three other partners, they built a successful firm of 12 staff, winning awards and recognition at a local and national level. However, 10+ years in, they needed to review the longer term vision and future for the business, including strategy, leadership and succession planning. There was a clear need to update and unite all expectations for the future of the business (beyond a simple financial target) and build a plan of action for this busy team.

Approach

Reviewing strategy, focus areas, team expertise, communication styles and areas of success and enjoyment across the firm. Using in-depth interviews, proven techniques and tools to answer complex questions and bring their view of the future together. By refocusing with clear targets and actions, the team are now equipped to implement change and deliver the next steps effectively.

Results

Redefined responsibilities on key areas for each partner to lead. Successfully defined future vision and improved internal structures and communications to support the team (and individual) development to grow the business to the right level.

Having worked alongside Kim and seen her passion for supporting businesses during her time with UWE, we knew she would be able to help us. We all understood the targets we wanted to meet but needed an effective plan to get there – whilst doing the day job. Kim and Sara allowed us to define that plan and suggested actions in a way that suited us all and played to our strengths. We now have clearer goals and better understand what we need to do to achieve them
