Formally established as a Limited Liability Partnership in February 2017, the Public Services Lab is an exciting collaboration between Catch22, Interserve, Big Society Capital and Club Finance. The idea of the Lab is to create a space through which public services can be re-imagined. The new economics make it clear that business as usual is no longer possible and that public bodies will need to think very differently about how they ensure the delivery of high quality public services. Over the last 30 years, people-facing public services have become increasingly bureaucratic, hard to access, and removed from the communities they are designed to serve. This has contributed to stubbornly poor outcomes, driving spiralling costs as service users continue to develop more acute needs that could have been prevented. With conditions in many of our communities worsening, and demand for services soaring there is a need for fundamental improvement. Solving this requires more human, user-focused services that are better able to deliver end outcomes. We believe that the voluntary and community sector can help to drive this improvement with preventative and personalised interventions along with vibrancy, innovation, relationships, social purpose, volunteers and access to communities. It is equally vital that this is done in collaboration with commissioners for services designed around achieving outcomes. Based in the Cunard Building at Liverpool’s Pier Head, the Lab seeks to make a difference to the delivery of public services across the Liverpool City Region. Our first projects are already under way. Quote: Public Services Lab.

Solicitors Practice for Sale

For sale – Sole Practitioner Solicitors’ Practice established in 1984 based on Merseyside that specializes in No-Win-No Fee asbestos disease personal injury type work which makes up about 99% of the firms’ work.  The client base is national and benefits from referrals from health professionals and the not for profit sector, as well as recommendations from past and present clients. The Principal is interested in selling the entire practice as a going concern due to his desire to retire. Turnover for the current financial year is projected to be in the region of circa £500K.  In addition, there is an estimated £750K – £850K of contingent WIP in the files which have a 95% success rate. The practice was incorporated as a limited liability company on 1 October 2015 and therefore it may offer fiscal benefits to the acquiring party. This Practice is based just a few miles from Liverpool city centre and occupies offices close to a Merseyrail underground station. Apart from the Principal, there are two fee earners and two support staff. Of particular interest is the fact that my Client owns the freehold of his offices which are on two levels, the ground floor benefitting from double frontage at pedestrian level.  This would enable the acquiring party to lease or rent the offices or possibly buy the freehold.  This would also enable an acquirer to move the firm to another geographical location without any dilapidations or lease termination expenses. There are no legal aid franchises but there are around 900 wills. The firm also has a clean P I claims record and has PI insurance on preferential terms. This Practice would be ideal for one or two individuals who are looking to start up their own first practice and would like a turnkey solution. Due to the excellent geographical location of the Practice, there is considerable potential for increasing turnover in the surrounding area and it would be a fantastic opportunity for someone with energy and enthusiasm. We believe this Practice would also be of interest to Practices who would like to expand their exposure to private and commercial client work in the Merseyside area. We also anticipate enquiries from Firms in the provinces interested in expanding and who would like to use this Practice as a platform to the lucrative legal environment in the Liverpool and Birkenhead areas. For more information, email solicitorsupermarketbiz@gmail.com quoting Merseyside P I Practice.

Do you need help with “legal” recruitment?

Without a doubt, staff and skills shortages can have a significant deleterious effect on your Practice. 

If only there was a simple and inexpensive way to recruit the staff you need. Whether you are looking for a locum, a para-legal, a solicitor, a licensed conveyancer, a legal executive, a secretary, receptionist, clerk, a lawyer, a barrister or even a self-employed consultant, we can help.

Traditional recruitment methods such as using employment agencies and placing advertisements can be expensive, time consuming, and, more worryingly, ineffective.

Expanding 10 Partner Central London Practice interested in Merging or making Acquisitions

We are delighted to have been retained by the above practice who are looking to expand and are interested in hearing from Principals/Partners of smaller Practices who might be looking for an exit route and who would consider an arrangement with a Central London Firm worth exploring.

My Clients are already handling work in the following categories – Residential Conveyancing, Commercial Property, Civil Litigation, Family, Crime, Immigration, Estate Planning and General Commercial.  They already hold franchises in Family, Crime and Immigration.  They are interested in expanding their work exposure in their existing categories but would not be averse to consider moving into other areas of law where such opportunities exist.

They are happy to consider merging with or the acquisition/absorption of Practices within a reasonable commute of central London.

They would be prepared to listen to proposals from the Principals/Partners of firms who would find an attraction in being part of a larger organisation and who might find the offer of, say, Equity, Partnership, Employment or Consultancy a very real alternative to continuing the running their own Practices in this tough economic climate.
