Petyt: Alliance ‘will deepen our clients’ awareness of both firms’ services in the marketplace’

Kain Knight, one of the UK’s largest firms of costs lawyers, and DMJ Recruitment, a leading supplier of human resources to the legal and company secretarial sectors, have formed a strategic alliance to promote each other’s services via a series of joint initiatives including co-branded seminars and online and offline marketing activities.

Kain Knight deals with the widest spectrum of legal costs from small criminal and family matters to high value, high profile complex commercial cases. DMJ Recruitment provides highly motivated and skilled individuals specialising in five key recruitment areas; legal private practice, in-house legal, legal support, legal mergers and company secretarial.

Peter Petyt, chief executive officer of Kain Knight, said: “DMJ Recruitment is widely recognised by the legal profession as the best place to find highly skilled professionals in the industry.

“Many of our law firm clients and contacts are also clients and contacts of DMJ Recruitment and we have therefore formed a strategic alliance to work on joint initiatives which will deepen our clients’ awareness of both firms’ services in the marketplace.”

Joint (ad)ventures in the legal sector

Nigel Wallis lo res

We all know that nothing in life is certain. As the actor, director and philosopher Clint Eastwood once said: “If you want a guarantee, buy a toaster.” He also said he’d tried being reasonable and didn’t like it. They should teach this kind of philosophy in law school. One thing in life is reasonably certain though. If you’re a law firm worth your salt, at some point you will be approached by another entity (most probably a work introducer) with a whizzy idea to ‘partner’ with you to ‘help you accelerate your growth’. In commercial speak this means, ‘we’d like to keep feeding you work but we’d also like to share in your profits’. The arrangement may be pitched to you as a joint venture – a win-win no less.
