O’Connors LLP is gaining a national reputation as ‘the law firm for law firms’ and ‘the law firm for bar firms’.
Legal services providers across the UK are having to take major strategic decisions to protect work sources, maintain profitability and position themselves to take advantage of the emerging market opportunities. Our corporate, commercial, regulatory and insurance lawyers work with the owners and managers of such organisations to help them make the right judgment calls. We provide solicitor-client confidentiality and the benefit of legal privilege. Whilst we mainly advise solicitors and barristers we are increasingly advising others (such as insurance brokers, financial advisers, costs consultants and accountants) who are involved or are getting involved, directly and indirectly, in the delivery of legal services. Being a specialist law firm, we do not compete with most other legal services providers and so offer an extra layer of security in relation to commercially sensitive information.
Our legal sector advisory team is led by Mark O’Connor who has been advising professional firms for over 30 years. He has been managing partner of both a large full service law firm and a small specialist law firm and has first-hand experience of law firm mergers, re-structures and day-to-day financial and operational matters. Our team includes Pamela Rafiq who is one of the UK’s leading experts on legal services regulation and Paul O’Connor who is one of the UK’s leading insurance experts.
Our comprehensive package of legal support includes advice on:
- Business strategy and management issues;
- Legal services regulatory advice;
- Entity structures including companies, LLPs, partnerships and Alternative Business Structures (ABSs);
- Contractual arrangements with work introducers;
- Raising finance;
- Third party litigation funding arrangements;
- ATE and other insurance arrangements;
- Insurance captives (both firm and client risks);
- Separate business arrangements;
- Marketing initiatives.
