Bringing clarity in a complex environment
With the growing complexities from international and domestic legal systems facing businesses, law practices and institutions, it is vital to have experienced, high quality and globally astute leaders in place. The vagaries of regulation at a national and international level is also bringing challenges that must be understood, addressed and incorporated into strategic planning.
Specialist leadership advisors to:
- Law firms
Our focus in this area is particularly in the identification of CEOs, Chambers Directors and similar leadership positions for barristers’ chambers. The breadth of these roles and the nuanced leadership characteristics that come with them – leading often large teams on the one hand whilst being there to serve the members of chambers on the other – make these complex searches. Cultural fit and personal qualities play as big a part as the technical experience that candidates bring. And the impact that a successful candidate has can be significant, ranging from assisting with entry into new markets to delivering technological change to driving equality and diversity.
Bringing forward passionate and diverse Board Leaders
Senior board appointments require a highly targeted, personalised search to identify appropriately qualified senior leaders, and it is essential that each of them is then approached by an articulate and well-informed advisor. Through our dedicated board practice, we appoint over 250 chair and non-executive roles every year: our networks give us extensive reach across sectors, and deep insights into the challenges – and opportunities – faced by boards today.
Developing high-performing boards
Saxton Bampfylde has the expertise and experience to provide chairs with the comprehensive insight they need to run an effective board, having led governance reviews at both executive and non-executive level. Our review process is designed to be relatively light-touch, allowing boards to comply fully with governance recommended practice and providing data and practical recommendations that can be used to improve board/team effectiveness, maximise strengths, and tackle weaknesses. Our view is structured around a tried and tested model, but can be adapted to specific organisational needs.
