Nexus launches legal projects and secondment division, Nexus Expedite

Posted by San Shim | 15 September 2020 | Nexus News

Nexus Law Group is excited to announce the launch of a new division, Nexus Expedite, focused on Corporate Secondments and Legal Project Management.

Nexus created this new division in response to growing client demand for managing complex multidisciplinary projects and placement of highly qualified lawyers and compliance professionals for supporting existing in-house legal functions.

Nexus has appointed San Shim as Director to lead Nexus Expedite. San formally established and ran KPMG’s Flexible Legal Resourcing secondments and projects service, and is a qualified lawyer specialising in Corporate and Employment Law. He has a unique background, having spent over 18 years’ in Management Consulting, Executive Search and Talent Management. San joins Nexus Law Group after successfully executing and delivering several strategic initiatives at KPMG over the past five years.

“We are very proud to launch Nexus Expedite in such capable hands and are excited to be able to offer our clients a much more cohesive legal project management and secondments service,” said Nexus Law Group’s Manager Director Marcus McCarthy, “Our structure is perfectly geared to offer secondments and we have done multiple placements over the years but we have never had someone with the unique skills required to grow and build that division properly. San adds a whole new dimension to our business and we are lucky to have him”.

“Our unique operating model was built to provide clients with direct access to senior specialist lawyers who, unlike many of the other secondment businesses, are fully interconnected and supported by the wider group membership – simply because we operate a full service law firm that stands behind our contracting lawyer network. Our lawyers have always enjoyed the flexibility of independent practice with all the benefits, resources and peer support of a large national firm. Clients using Nexus Expedite enjoy the same benefits and this allows us to deliver this same point of difference in the growing secondments market. It was always the next logical step in our business progression.”

Nexus Expedite Director San Shim observed that clients are demanding more than just traditional legal services from their law firms, “Clients need trusted advisors who understand their pain points and act as a true business partner, offering simple and quick solutions to complex problems and resourcing issues.”

“Clients do not want to just hire a lawyer these days, they want manage how they engage external professional services in a way that best suits their ultimate business goals,” said San, “From the moment a client engages with Nexus Expedite, they are speaking to a management consultant and qualified lawyer, experienced in procuring external legal functions and delivering projects. This ensures that from the very start, their brief is properly understood and allows us to effectively and efficiently deliver the right set of skills to meet their needs at any given time.”

“Nexus was always committed to changing the way legal services are delivered and experienced,” said Marcus, “Our mission is three-fold: Firstly, to deliver top level services at a significant costs saving; to build a more common-sense and rewarding structure for the practice of modern law; and lastly, deliver clients direct access to the right expertise at the right time. Nexus Expedite allows us to do this in a much more cohesive way for a growing segment of the market.”
