Since the 07/08 crisis, two words are rarely seen in the same sentence: business and certainty. Very few industries are exempt from this. These days, words that seem to be used more frequently with “business” are “complex”, “turbulent” and “unforgiving”.
It’s what you know and who you know
Now – more than ever, executives require lawyers who are pragmatic, connected and have a healthy respect for a combination of “quick wins” and long-term vision.
A law firm that blindly follows client requests and doesn’t challenge reasoning and assumptions is no more than a commodity. The Madgwicks’ team work in partnership with you to support your vision, challenge you and proactively identify the opportunities and risks that apply to your business and industry. As one of our partners was recently told by a client – “I talk to you more than I talk to my wife!”.
Why? Because a trusted advisor becomes an invaluable resource to an executive in this complex, turbulent and unforgiving business world. It’s trickier than it’s ever been.
Your business doesn’t operate in a vacuum and neither do we. When our business advisory team needs to – it reaches out to other areas of the firm and even looks to other business professionals who may be better placed to provide advice. After all, it’s not just about what you know – but also, whom you know. It’s that combination that gets results for clients – and it’s the reason they keep calling us.
We live in a ‘knowledge world’. There’s never been a more necessary time to have right people on your side. Madgwicks’ lawyers can provide you with an experienced, yet unique perspective on the opportunities and challenges you face tomorrow. You can read some of our insights here.
