A Note from the Managing Partner

Clients use a “lawyer” not a “law firm” and the best lawyers just “get it” – they appreciate their client’s goals, they have the judgement to give effective advice and they have the determination to drive successful outcomes.

I moved from a ”magic circle” firm to a prominent US law firm becoming one of its first six hires in London. I experienced first-hand how a small team of phenomenal lawyers can very quickly gain market recognition because of the outstanding service they provide.

At five years’ PQE, my firm trusted me to establish and then lead their Hong Kong office. My lawyering skills were completely exposed – no precedents or large team around me – yet my clients included the most prominent activist global funds. Together, we handled some of the most pioneering investor actions around Asia; I became an extension of their team, working through their issues as if they were my own.

Years later, I moved to South Africa, to head a global law firm’s Africa Private Equity practice. I earned the trust of new clients in a foreign jurisdiction, because they saw my dedication to their success – winning them the best terms, giving them the best advice and not missing a trick. The firm’s PE practice became a market leader in record time.

“Whilst the business of law has become increasingly complex over the years, my vision for Allectus is simply to put proficient lawyering and client service front and centre again. Not afraid to challenge outdated practices, the firm has been thoughtfully structured to enable this vision and deliver the very best of ourselves, to ensure we always “get” your needs and deliver results.”
