Who Are We?
We continue to do all we can to break free from the traditional legal business model to provide clients with a service that's relevant, innovative and directly in line with their requirements. This has involved digging deep to find out what our clients really want from us, and how to provide that in the most effective way possible.
We set up elexica, a dedicated legal resource website for clients and contacts more than fifteen years ago. Available whenever it’s needed, elexica provides a rich stream of expert commentary, legal information and services, and has grown into an impressive library of practical guides, checklists, case reports, legal analysis, training modules, podcasts and email alerts.
One such resource is the Simmons & Simmons LaunchPlus microsite. The first online product of its kind on the market, it provides all the information a start-up hedge fund manager needs to consider to start a new fund from scratch.
Then there are our market leading Simmons & Simmons navigator subscription services. A globally trusted online regulatory resource, navigator gives our clients 24/7 access to reliable and user-friendly guidance on key areas of financial services and tax regulation, at a fraction of the cost of traditional legal advice. We launched the first navigator service way back in 2007. Today, navigator includes nine different services with content spanning over 110 jurisdictions. We’re constantly looking at ways to evolve and expand our navigator offering and deliver legal solutions to our clients differently.
And it's not just online where we are working in new ways. We also offer clients the option to work with us through Simmons & Simmons Adaptive, a model which allows them to flexibly resource large scale projects or secondments with high quality lawyers at very short notice. What's more, Simmons & Simmons Adaptive lawyers get access to our world class client base as consultants, while holding complete control over when they work and the assignments they take on.
For our graduates, this innovative way of thinking has seen us launch our pioneering Trainee Skills Academy. Starting as a future trainee, our programme brings together a wealth of client, commercial, personal and technical skill development to allow you to hit the ground running. And for those who want to, there’s even the opportunity to gain a Masters degree, MA (LPC with Business).
Our strategy is deliberately challenging and ambitious, and central to it are our ambitious plans for growth. To achieve all of this, it’s essential that we have the right people in the right place; that means people like you who share our ambition and are driven to achieve our future success.
