I’ve known Geoff Maclauchlan for over 25 years, working with him in the legal sector in two law firm.Simon Stell, Managing Partner LCF Law and LCF Residential, Solicitor of the Year - Yorkshire Legal Awards 2016
Geoff joined Hammond Suddards where I was a partner as Finance Director shortly after the firm’s creation and played a significant part working alongside the senior partner and managing partner in laying firm financial foundations for the development of a rapidly growing law firm which at its peak had offices in Leeds, London, Manchester, Birmingham, Bradford, Brussels and other European cities.
I later joined Last Cawthra Feather (now LCF Law) as a partner where I became Managing Partner (in 1997). During my tenure Geoff has periodically assisted as a consultant to review of our financial procedures and structures and for a period of time he served covered for the maternity absence of our Financial Director.
Geoff has a unique insight into the operation of legal businesses of different sizes coupled with the experience of working with law firm partners gained over a number of years in differing economic times.
I can recommend Geoff Maclauchlan to any law firm seeking strategic support in relation to its financial function and strategic planning.
