A fantastic start to 2019 as Halebury becomes an Elevate business
This week is a significant milestone in Halebury’s evolution as we announced that we have been acquired by Elevate, the US-based market leading law company that provides sophisticated technology, people, data science and consulting tools to the legal sector, acting as a strategic partner to law firms and in-house teams.
Our team at Halebury have been collaborating with Elevate for some time and the relationship and offering we have brought to our clients by working together has been such a positive one, which has yielded so many opportunities, it was the logical next step to formalise this.
Elevate has enjoyed substantial growth over the past few years through international expansion, strategic senior hires and investing in AI technology and consulting. It has its own resourcing arm, Elevated Lawyers, with a great pool of legal talent and has brought in Halebury as market leaders in flexible resourcing to scale up to create an even stronger client proposition.
We are so excited about what being part of Elevate means for our clients, for our lawyers and for the future.
Joining forces means we can provide our clients with a legal services solution which can deliver best of breed talent, resources, technology and systems. Our clients at Halebury can benefit from immediate scale and transatlantic coverage. They will also be able to access junior talent from Elevated Lawyers who place lawyers from paralegal to partner level, ensuring we can resource all levels of expertise. We will be able to deliver end-to-end transactions and projects for our clients covering all levels of the legal value pyramid. Elevate clients will have access to a deeper pool of senior in-house legal talent, project managers and Chief Legal Officers via our team of lawyers at Halebury.
For Halebury’s talented team of senior in-house lawyers, this will offer great career enhancement as we provide the best home for specialist, creative and innovative in-house lawyers who want to change the way legal services are delivered. It means challenging and fulfilling legal careers, backed by training and career development opportunities. It means a career path like no other.
As co-founders, we will continue to play a key role in the management of Halebury, and welcome Liam Brown and John Croft from Elevate to the Halebury Board. Not only is there great synergy between our two companies in terms of service ranges and specialisms, but we are all entrepreneurs who have pioneered solutions in the legal services market, so critically, our cultural approach and attitude are well aligned. We also have a mutual commitment to fostering an inclusive and diverse working environment and are looking forward to our combined efforts to drive further positive change in the industry.
Looking ahead, we will be expanding our placement offering for clients and looking to undertake more projects which include the full spectrum of work and acting as a fully outsourced legal team for businesses.
When we started back in 2007, we always had a master plan: to revolutionise the global legal services market. Starting Halebury was the first step towards this. By becoming an Elevate company, we can create dynamic, 360º solutions for legal teams. We can break the mould to create real efficiencies and provide our clients with genuine value. As part of Elevate, we want to be THE law company providing the best possible resourcing, strategy, technology and consulting solutions to in-house teams and law firms. As our new colleagues at Elevate say, the future is bright!
As always, we would like to thank all those clients and supporters who have helped us on our way so far and who have been part of this amazing journey and our incredible team of lawyers and HQ staff. We cannot wait to step into the legal future with you all. What a fantastic start to 2019.
