NorthEdge Investment Rationale

Strategy

The investment will facilitate the acceleration of growth and development of the practice, and open up new opportunities in the legal services sector.

Karen Jackson, CEO of Roberts Jackson, said: “This is a very exciting time for the business and we are delighted to welcome NorthEdge on board as an investor. The introduction of Alternative Business Structures through The Legal Services Act 2007 has created interesting opportunities for firms like ours. The investment from NorthEdge will allow us to accelerate the growth of the business, capitalise on new opportunities within the market and hopefully provide many more clients with the very best advice. Ultimately as lawyers we are here to serve our clients to the best of our ability and this investment will enable us to build upon our existing platform within the legal services sector. This is a firm that focuses on its employees and clients and we chose NorthEdge because they hold that similar belief – they invest in people just like we do and are committed to supporting the firm in many different ways going forward.”
