Venturis Consulting Group, the preeminent European law firm strategy consulting firm, will further strengthen its presence in the Nordics. The Nordic branch will be led by Marion Ehmann, founder of kiMEru Coaching & Consulting AB and before that a lawyer with Clifford Chance in Duesseldorf and Vinge in Stockholm. According to Marion: “The legal market in the Nordics is very dynamic at the moment. We experience increased demands from both clients and employees as well as an increase in technology use that all have a clear impact on law firm´s performance, pricing and operating models. Law firms have realized that and accepted the need to change the way they operate and manage their matters and their people. We have now passed the phase of paying lip-service to change and can expect to see some real innovation in the next years. I am very happy to be able to support that change together with my Venturis colleagues. We can help law firms in the region to design new strategies and execute them, to increase their client-serving skills, to support their employees in the transition from lawyer to legal solution provider, and more.”
Venturis Consulting Group – which has been servicing some of the most prominent law firms across Europe for more than 15 years – has been working with independent and international law firms in Sweden, Norway and Denmark for more than 5 years and has implemented several strategic reviews, law firm restructuring projects and law firm mergers. Venturis has also assisted international firms with market entries and advised national firms in Scandinavia on governance reviews and profit and practice management systems. Dr. Gerard Tanja, Amsterdam-based partner: ‘’With Marion Ehmann we have a very experienced partner, well-established and who has seen ‘both sides of the table’. Her specific expertise in the area of legal design and legal project management is a very welcome addition to our current service offering. We have an increased demand for our services in the Nordics and are currently executing some, rather demanding, market entry and merger projects in the region. We want to further grow our Nordic business, want to firmly establish ourselves in the region and are convinced the Nordic legal market will experience a lot of change in the next few years”.
Venturis Consulting Nordics AB will provide strategic advice to national independent and International law firms in the areas of strategy & positioning (including merger consulting), people & performance, and strategy execution. It will operate out of Stockholm and intends to add consultants from other jurisdictions to the team.
