Senior Partner Simeon Spencer makes the case for lawyers working from anywhere
We’re delighted that Senior Partner Simeon Spencer has been quoted in a Law Society Gazette feature, looking at the pandemic’s effects on recruitment in the legal sector.
The article discusses how, contrary to popular opinion, the sector became much busier over the past 15 months. In addition, it looks at how potential recruits’ expectations have evolved around culture and values, with more focus on work-life balance and the rise of ‘lawyer platforms’ that allow lawyers to take home more of their fees.
Sim notes that this trend has been seen at the firm: “Our remuneration is based on a share of revenues generated by the lawyers working on any partial piece of work or client. The share is vastly more favourable to the lawyers than the traditional law firm split of roughly 30% finding its way into the lawyer’s pocket. We don’t operate on standard salaries. However, because our work has increased manifold over the last 18 months of the pandemic, there has been a concomitant increase in what we pay our lawyers, on average.”
