Legal Works is recruiting a commercial IT solicitor 3-5PQE for this exciting commercial 'tech' driven practice based in the designer Tunbridge Wells office.
This FIRM, wanted to see a fresh way of delivering legal advice to clients. They knew that the traditional old school law firm model was broken, hated the focus on billing and time recording, overly competitive cultures, demanding work hours and not being a true legal partner to the clients.
So, they created a model that works for both the clients and the staff, using a subscription based model and using the latest technology to better work with clients. The result is a hybrid in-house and private practice model where the FIRM acts as clients in-house team. The FIRM's staff does not have any billable targets and no time recording.
The FIRM has a predominant Technology market focus, specifically targeting Microsoft Partners in technologies such as SharePoint, Azure, Office365, Dynamics as well as offering Cyber Security advice.
The FIRM also advises non-technology companies such as recruitment companies, telecommunications companies and the like as well as getting on board to help start-ups to well established medium sized businesses of up to £35 million turnover.
