“I am delighted that Zebra continues to grow recognition within the wider business sector.” – Zoe Holland, Zebra LC

Zebra’s award shortlisting for the Women in Business Awards comes on the back of two high profile Award wins in the last 8 months (New Entrant of the year 2013: Modern Law Awards and Outstanding Innovator 2014: Claims Innovation Awards).  With a business that started in December 2012, Zebra’s recognition is growing pace. The business has already made a significant impact within the legal services sector, particularly within M&A and funding of law firms in the new era.

The Women in Business Awards, launched by Down Town in Business, recognises female entrepreneurs, business owners and decision makers from across the city region. Breaking down stereotypes and promoting role models, this awards event will recognise the achievements of women who have created successful ventures and contributed to economic growth.

The shortlist includes entrants from businesses within both the legal and accounting sector; including JMW, DWF, Shoosmiths, Addleshaw Goddard, Duff & Phelps, Deloitte and Baker Tilly.

“I am delighted that Zebra continues to grow recognition within the wider business sector. As our projects partners cross legal, accounting, finance and private equity sector it is fantastic to be recognized within this year’s awards,” Zoe Holland, Zebra Legal Consulting (Zebra LC).

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.
