Con­stan­tine Law re­veasl plans for a Birm­ing­ham hub

Birmingham Post - - POST PEOPLE -

LEAD­ING Lon­don firm Con­stan­tine Law has just an­nounced plans to open a hub in Birm­ing­ham’s Col­more Dis­trict.

Part­ner John Hayes has head­hunted Omer Sim­jee, a lead­ing em­ploy­ment and busi­ness im­mi­gra­tion lawyer in the West Mid­lands, to lead the busi­ness.

Omer has joined Con­stan­tine Law as its fifth se­nior em­ploy­ment lawyer as part of the rapid ex­pan­sion of this chal­lenger law firm.

At the launch at Ho­tel du Vin, Omer said: “Con­stan­tine Law has re-en­gi­neered the way that le­gal ser­vices are de­liv­ered. Our ap­proach en­ables us to pro­vide our ex­pert em­ploy­ment and busi­ness im­mi­gra­tion lawyers at 60 per cent of the cost of tra­di­tional firms. We achieve this by be­ing, like our clients, highly en­tre­pre­neur­ial: we work to a lean busi­ness model, which de­liv­ers a smarter, more re­spon­sive ser­vice to our clients.

‘‘The strat­egy is to shake up the le­gal mar­ket in the West Mid­lands by de­liv­er­ing high-qual­ity ad­vice at a price that the re­gion’s busi­nesses will recog­nise as be­ing ex­cep­tional value.

“We elim­i­nate most of the fixed costs that force many firms to in­crease their rates. Our lawyers work to an ag­ile work­ing model, us­ing a host of cloud based so­lu­tions – both for case man­age­ment and man­ag­ing our in­ter­nal busi­ness pro­cesses.

“Most im­por­tantly, we pass our cost sav­ings on to our clients by re­duc­ing our rates. How many lawyers out there can say that their firms do that?”
