We haven’t hired a Managing Partner externally since 2021 – these roles are rare; they simply don’t come up often.

Adding to that, there aren’t too many roles in family law like our Managing Partner position, certainly not in a specialist family firm. Out of a team of almost 200 lawyers, we only have 12 Managing Partners.
