The Asset Finance department of this leading firm urgently required additional support when they faced an increasing workload and an already overstretched team of associates. They needed to expand their capability to deal with the overflow work, without impacting their profitability. Approaching LOD, the Partner requested two senior lawyers who could integrate swiftly into the team and get on with the work with little supervision.
LOD introduced the Partner to Rebecca and Euan, senior LOD lawyers with extensive experience in private practice asset finance and banking teams. Impressed by the lawyers’ enthusiasm and motivation, the firm began the assignments within a few days of the initial meetings. Rebecca immediately began picking up overflow work three days a week, whilst Euan worked full-time (and on weekends when needed) on specific projects to support the department. They are both now looking after some of the firm’s key client accounts.
The LOD lawyers saved the team at a crucial time and I can’t imagine what I would have done without them. Not only did they both fit in seamlessly with the team, they have also received exceptional feedback from our clients. They have a real sense of client duty and their technical levels are excellent. We couldn’t be more pleased with how everything is going, and the experience has made us trust LOD completely to provide us with high-quality, pre-vetted lawyers at short notice.

Being able to work flexibly and with complete autonomy over my work has been exhilarating. This was my first assignment with LOD and it was great to see that, with the LOD stamp of quality, the client let me dive straight into the contracts and deal directly with clients.
