Mergers and Acquisitions

The Bottom Line Consultancy

The Bottom Line Consultancy specialises in providing a full range of support and marketing services to Solicitors and their Practices.  Having worked for over 512 different Solicitors’ Practices, they are probably one of the largest consultancies specialising in the legal profession.

Their Founder and Principal, Ray Fox,  was the Company Secretary and Legal Director of Dun + Bradstreet.  They can help you generate additional Company/Commercial, Commercial Employment and Commercial Property Clients as well as provide customised and out-sourced marketing support including Headhunting, Practice Valuations, Profit Diagnostics, Strategic Planning, Professional Indemnity Insurance, Solicitor-to-Solicitor networking, the sale, merger & acquisition of Practices, Solicitor/Partner recruitment, your appointment as an NED, Offshore Company Formation, commercial finance/loans/banking support, disbursement funding and Client Account Investment.

The Bottom Line Consultancy was set up in 1994 and is used by Solicitors’ Practices through out the UK – they have clients in such diverse areas as Cornwall, Belfast, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Barrow-in-Furness, Alnwick, Dover, Southampton, Cardigan Bay, Pembroke and Anglesey.

The Bottom Line Consultancy has a distinct and incredibly effective way of working in that they have a database of over 50,000 email addresses of Solicitors and their practices as well as 17,500 hard copy mailing addresses of Solicitors and their practices. Along with their primary web site, this enables them to ethically, professionally and discretely, circulate the details of their Clients’ practices for sale.

In addition, having worked for so many law firms over the years, has given Ray Fox a unique insight into the succession planning, strategic planning, credit controlsand financial management required for the profitable running of a law firm.  Quite frankly, we doubt if anybody in the UK has analysed so many balance sheets and P+L statements of Solicitors’ practices.

Quite simply, The Bottom Line Consultancy provides professional support for the legal profession.
