In the competitive legal market, law firm Macfarlanes continues to thrive while remaining completely independent. This is in stark contrast with other firms taking the merger path in order to grow or to find new sources of business. The autonomy is integral to the award-winning British law firm’s enduring commitment to preserve client relationships while delivering the right advice in the right way.
“We value our relationship with our clients, and part of our job is to ensure they are using the right law firm to get the proper advice,” says Julian Howard, managing partner. “So if we are not the appropriate firm to deliver that, we work with our clients so they get it from the most suitable organisation.”
The firm has taken the track of immersing itself into its clients’ businesses to arrive at innovative solutions. Time, effort and dedication are earnestly invested to uphold this client-driven approach.
Macfarlanes’ deeply rooted experience, coupled with its international expertise, backs the firm’s leading stance in navigating market complexities.
Macfarlanes attributes this advantage to its size – big enough to serve large, multinational clients, but also small enough to seamlessly communicate with fellow lawyers and advisors within the organisation. This optimal scope reinforces its agile decision-making process.
Consequently, the gains outweigh the challenges as Macfarlanes advises some of the world’s most successful businesses and leaders in the areas of English law, across corporate and commercial matters, investment management and private affairs. Governed by trust, integrity and respect, Macfarlanes extends its efficient and cost-effective services to clients in China, Singapore and all parts of Southeast Asia.
“We offer our clients something that we passionately believe in – we want to be a trusted adviser,” Howard says. “We care about our clients, so we spend time with them to understand what they want to achieve.”
