Retained Client Work

A majority of our work at CPSS is on a retained basis. Our clients retain us to secure individual partners or senior lawyers and in some cases they wish to secure a complete team offering.

Many of our clients come to us for assistance on difficult partner hire projects in specialist markets – where they want us to handle the project in a delicate manner. Quite often there are few key partners operating at the top end of these individual markets, so a controlled message is critical to the project’s success.

We have experience of advising firms on affiliations in controlled markets, especially in parts of the Middle East and Far East. For example, we have advised one of the leading offshore law firms on entering into a new jurisdiction and assisted an international firm entering into Saudi Arabia.

Whether we are working on just one senior hire, or advising on a firm merger, our service to our client is very personable and if required by the firm/client, we will sit in on individual/wider board meetings to assist in making a warm introduction and to help secure the deal.

Our consultants know their market and they know how to recruit. We understand the complexities of partnerships – the different equity structures, recruitment policies, personalities in the partnerships, overall strategies – we sit in the middle of big deals and handhold the process (where required) for our clients to get the desired result.
