Group8 launches legal consultancy in the UK Group8 is a resourcing and consulting business focused on supporting global law firms and in-house corporate legal departments to navigate change, and accelerate growth. With an enviable client base that includes some of the world’s premier law firms and corporations, Group8 has joined James Caan’s portfolio of investment backed businesses. With offices in Sydney, Singapore, Dubai and now London, Group8 is on course for exceptional growth and performance, positioning them as ‘ones to watch’ in becoming the most innovative player in the legal resourcing market.
For Miranda Hilton, CEO of Group8, the synergies in thinking made the partnership appealing: “The legal industry is going through a fundamental shift and law firms are being asked to deliver ‘more for less’ against the landscape of an increasingly digital and procurement-driven world. Many of our clients are having to rethink their business models”.
“I have always believed that we need to be completely aligned with the interests and challenges of our clients. As their needs are now a lot more complex, we see an opportunity to provide flexible, creative solutions that make a positive impact on their bottom line. As part of the Recruitment Entrepreneur portfolio, Group8 can partner with and learn from successful businesses in other industry sectors who have navigated similar challenges.”
Abid Hamid, CEO of Recruitment Entrepreneur, said, “We made a conscious decision to add a legal business to our portfolio and looked globally for the right partner. In our search, Miranda stood out as the go-to legal expert. We approached her and over nine months developed a business plan designed to transform the industry. I firmly believe Group8 is set to be the most exciting legal consultancy internationally”.
Chairman James Caan CBE, commented, “Group8 was an obvious choice for us to work with as a joint venture partner. The opportunity drew our attention due to the strength and longevity of their client relationships and the high calibre of their service. Miranda’s energy, passion and professionalism is contagious and made it an easy decision, as well as setting the benchmark incredibly high for all future Recruitment Entrepreneur investments”.
