Professional Recommendations

I came to know Nick through his association with the Law Society’s Law Management Section and invited him to assist my then firm (regional 17 partners, c100 staff) with its strategy process.

Nick’s approach was practical and full of hard won wisdom. He was able to meet the challenges of quickly understanding the dynamics of the firm, its strengths and its weaknesses. He subsequently helped to put together an effective strategy package which included changes to the firm’s prevailing financial and cultural norms. Nick’s preparation was comprehensive and involved meetings with the Managing Partner and other key stakeholders.

As chair and facilitator at the partners’ strategy day Nick kept the partnership focused on the issues. He ensured that each partner not only understood, but bought into the resultant action plan. I would have no hesitation in recommending Nick in either a project based, or an ongoing mentoring role for key individuals who are either in post, or heading that way.
