How do we help?
Accurate, up-to-the-minute investigative research.
For all businesses, senior people have a substantial effect on success. This is especially true within the legal sector, where lawyers both create the product and, through delivery, are an intrinsic part of it; people buy capability, but they also buy other people and especially so when considering professional advisors whose efficacy matters so much for the success of a business. Our approach seeks to bridge the gap in understanding between business metrics and optimisation, and the practical realities of human beings operating in imperfect markets where relationships, structural/technical service provision and market perceptions all play a part.
The Edward Drummond Legal team is focused on supporting client development through people insight, business intelligence and search/recruitment. We generate information which allows you to answer key questions, stress test a ‘working hypothesis’, or access new opportunities – often a combination of all three.
We take a straightforward and diligent approach to understanding your business and the information which will be of most value to you. We seek out that that information and then we help you to interpret and utilise it. Law firms choose us to help them better understand their markets, their clients and their people. From broad based market research to focused intelligence exercises investigating specific client opportunities or competitor profiles. Should this then lead to a senior level hiring requirement, we can combine our extensive executive search experience to act on your behalf in approaching and securing partners and teams.
