Advantage Consulting launches innovative Birmingham office
16 November 2020
The shift to the innovative Blythe Valley Business Park in Solihull near Birmingham comes as the firm bids to expand its client offering “into profession-leading capabilities in digital transformation, advanced legal technologies and insurance for lawyers.”
Advantage Consulting is the UK’s largest legal sector consulting firm and a premium partner for Actionstep, legal practice management software.
The aim of the new office is to foster greater collaboration with clients and encourage co-working and co-creation.
According to Indira Kesic, Finance Director at Advantage Consulting, the change of scenery will showcase the firm’s expansion of its client offering from beyond traditional legal strategy consulting into profession-leading capabilities in digital transformation and advanced legal technology solutions.
Mrs. Kesic elaborated, “We are delighted to be in our new home. The move to the Blythe Valley Business Park in Solihull signifies our continued commitment to the West Midlands region, 12 years after we first established a presence here. This office provides us with the perfect environment to foster creativity and collaboration. Most importantly, our new office will help us continue to attract and retain the best talent and bring cutting-edge insights to our clients.”
This expansion comes just two years after the company announced it would create 15 new jobs in the UK. The firm is still seeking to employ more software consultants and legal technology experts, with the aim of becoming a one-stop-shop supplier of cloud technology solutions to law firms.
“The Blythe Valley Business Park is a great location for our new office,” noted Jon Cook, the firm’s Managing Director. “We met our initial recruitment goals in half the time we expected it would take. The strength of the West Midlands region – including a thriving international community and well-respected educational institutions – providing access to skilled, tech savvy workers – confirms our original choice for this location and makes expansion an easy call.”
The newly created jobs are set to build on the expertise that already exists at the firm's Technology Studio, especially in areas such as lawtech and analytics, cyber security and legal digitalisation. In addition, Advantage Consulting aims to grow its professional indemnity insurance brokerage, as well as its mergers and acquisitions, tax and accountancy practices.
Mev Dzihic, Technology Director, added: “The growth of the firm is testament to the success that the team here has enjoyed since announcing significant expansion plans and the breadth of expertise within the business. This commitment reflects the confidence we have in Birmingham as a great place to do business and a hotbed of talent, particularly for graduates and school-leavers.”
