A CEO/COO in a modern law firm must bring, at a top level, the strategic expertise and management skills a traditional partnership may lack. They must drive through the change and momentum needed to thrive in a newly competitive and increasingly global market. They must have the skill and high-level experience to embed themselves strategically within the culture of the firm; to build strong relationships; assess points of strength and weakness, and, critically, respond swiftly to changing regulations, shifting economic factors and emerging markets. With the right individual at the helm, a firm can not only survive in this challenging economic environment - they can thrive.
At Totum, we understand that there is no room for compromise. We have the expertise, experience and deep-level insight to find the right individual to lead your firm into the new era of legal practice. We work closely with our clients to thoroughly understand their unique firm culture, specific challenges, needs and specialisms - and interpret this into a finely honed specification we can take to market.
We know that nothing about this fiercely independent and highly individualised sector is generic; because of this we work just as intensively with our candidates, sourced from a broad variety of expertise and backgrounds to ensure that, when we recommend an individual to you, they are the right person for the role - not the first to tick the boxes or meet the quotas.

What are the benefits of a strong management team to a law firm?
|"Bates Wells and Braithwaite employed Tim to help us in the search for our first Partnership Executive Officer. I am very glad we did so. They helped us produce a focused job description and then handled the sifting of the 120 applicants down to a manageable shortlist from which we had 3 good candidates with the result that we were able to offer the job and make an appointment all within our timescale. I have no doubt that without Tim's role we would not have achieved this result. They were throughout very professional, supportive and efficient."|
