As the Bar, its business and the ways it competes for work has changed, so has the way it manages its business.

Modern business practices require a more defined approach, including the management of defined elements of the business by professionals able to manage effectively and work collaboratively.

"GRL Legal, and in particular Nick Rees and Paul Reece, are a pleasure to deal with - they are professional, reliable, knowledgeable, trustworthy and give you their time in abundance. They approached me about my current role in a delicate and polite way and were aware of the sensitivities around moving, particularly having been in my previous role for such a long time. They are streets ahead of the competition."Deputy Senior Clerk Leading common law / commercial set

A modern Chambers has individuals responsible for the management and development of practice management, clerking, administration, finance, business development, IT and business services; the exact size and make up of management teams heavily influenced by budget, chambers’ individual requirements and business plans – it has never been a more important time to ensure each function is delivered most effectively.

GRL continues to be at the forefront of change at the Bar and has been instrumental in the creation and successful implementation of new management roles and structures. We work with chambers in assessing and agreeing needs, defining roles and responsibilities and recruiting skilled individuals. We continue to play a very active role in advising the Bar on the changing landscape of the legal services market and in how to be best placed to meet challenges and opportunities.

Through the hands-on experience of our consultants and their work as managers and leaders at the Bar and in law firms, we offer a unique approach.  We advise and guide clients from the earliest stages, including the creation of new roles, though to the recruitment and placing of the most skilled individuals. Our consultants also continue to advise on the successful development and realignment of professional management structures and staffing teams.

GRL’s success is based on our clear understanding of the unique requirements of the Bar and the robust processes required to successfully recruit talented individuals. Clients and candidates benefit from our pro-active approach and commitment to the highest levels of service.
