This year, The Lawyer’s annual ranking of the largest UK law firms by turnover is available as an interactive, digital benchmarking tool. For the first time this will allow you to manipulate each data set against the metrics of your choice.
Until now secondments were handled on an ad hoc basis, with clients requesting help and being offered the services of the first available person.
Corporate partner Julian Long worked alongside associate Richard Thexton, the practice group’s chief operating officer for six months from March, to set up the new system, which lists all available secondments on an internal database.

Anyone who wants to take up the placement must apply and will be interviewed within the firm.
The programme, which was piloted in the corporate group, is being rolled out across the firm.
