FourthLine finds Arbitration Specialist for top UK Law Firm

A highly regarded national law firm with over 500 lawyers working from several offices across the UK approached us to find an Arbitration Specialist


The Challenge

Our client has positive working relationships with several, larger international law firms who regularly refer arbitration work on to them if  there was an internal conflict of interest.

Our client had a regular inflow of arbitration cases, however, they didn’t have a dedicated arbitration specialist to focus on the work exclusively or go out and win business directly.
They spotted an opportunity to grow the firm substantially but didn’t have the specialist talent internally to make this happen.

The Solution

  • We drew up a list of candidates to approach, ensuring that  we weren’t approaching anyone from a partner firm that referred arbitration work on to our client
  • As well as ensuring candidates had the right technical knowledge we also had to ensure that the candidate had the right soft skills & style to manage a shift away from a corporate working environment
  • We were fully engaged with our client's ambitious plans and the strategies in place to grow, which meant that we were able to find the right candidate and convince them to make the move
