Jepson Holt celebrates 10 years of business

16 Sep 2014

Jepson Holt Consulting are delighted this month to be celebrating our 10th year in business, which will be marked with a private dinner for a small group of clients and professional contacts at a Manchester restaurant on the evening of 17th September.

Formed in late 2004 by Philip Jepson and Alex Holt, the firm recruited their first member of staff early in 2005 and by 2008 were a thriving recruitment consultancy of 12 people.

The recession caused the business to halve but it has now regrown to its pre 2008 strength.

As the changes from the Legal Services Act have begun to reshape the legal services market, Jepson Holt has developed to help firms to grow in the new market take advantage of its opportunities. In particular they have developed key strengths in mergers and acquisitions, and in recruiting non lawyer Directors and Managers for law firms.

In our 10 years in the industry, we have helped to place 233 people into senior roles within law firms, been instructed on 131 retained searches for firms and provided consultancy expertise on 30 merger and acquisition projects, including the high profile Linder Myers deal with Assure Law in March 2014.

During the course of the dinner on 17th September, Philip Jepson will unveil a new look for the firm, with a specially commissioned new logo to mark our decade in business. The firm will also celebrate by publishing a timeline of significant events over the past 10 years and will look back on how the industry has changed since 2004. All of this material will be available on our website in due course.

Jepson Holt would like to thank all of the clients, connections and candidates we have met during the last 10 years in business, as we look forward to another exciting decade of helping legal firms to grow.
