McCarthy Denning lawyers have freedom; freedom to focus their talents in providing first rate advice and assistance to their clients.

A McCarthy Denning lawyer works in a very different way to a lawyer in a traditional international firm. Freed from the daily commute, they spend a good deal of time working from their home office or at one of our hot-desking centres. They also spend more time visiting and working at clients’ offices – which clients and lawyers alike love. They meet other McCarthy Denning lawyers regularly, but less frequently, in our multi-purpose office hubs or over drinks after work. Perhaps because they are not seeing their colleagues every day they find those interactions are more meaningful and produce more ideas for collaboration and genuine teamwork. Although working remotely, our lawyers enjoy central office support in the form of telephone reception, messaging and connection, daily postal service, stylish meeting rooms and central calendar coordination.

Where colleagues are working together on client matters they are connected by Osprey, our state of the art cloud based Practice Management Software Solution. Our lawyers also receive access to the best research and resource tools available such as PLC and Lexis Nexis as well as to an international network of law firms who can assist with cross-border deals or other multi-jurisdictional issues.

Freed up from chargeable hours targets, McCarthy Denning lawyers are free to determine the way they work and the way they charge their clients. They are remunerated significantly better on a like-for-like basis than their counterparts in traditional City and international firms. Where junior support is needed it comes from a pool of junior solicitors, barristers and paralegals sourced from our joint venture partners or contracted in from agencies or barristers chambers. Secretarial services are also just a phone call or an email away.

McCarthy Denning lawyers have the vision to see where the legal services market is going and the entrepreneurial spirit to take advantage of it. They are experiencing a revolutionary working environment where professional rigour and collaboration co-exist with individual autonomy and a flexible work-life balance.
