Legal Awards 2022

19 | Legal Awards 2022 Wildcat Law is a law firm with a difference. Unlike many major firms, Wildcat Law is striving to make quality legal advice available to the average person, covering areas such as divorce, contract, and inheritance law. Going forward, the law firm hopes to further this mission. Wildcat Law is breaking the status quo – it is, in essence, unlike any other high street or city law firm. It offers a unique ‘third-way’ service to its clients which seamlessly combines the benefits of traditional solicitor led services and those of a direct access barrister as both feature on the same team, meaning that there’s no dilemma over choice for the client. Furthermore, the law firm is highly flexible as it carries out client meetings via Microsoft Teams, tying in to its mission to make high-quality legal services more accessible across England and Wales. Indeed, Wildcat Law consists of barristers, solicitors, and a chartered wealth manager – this means that the firm is equipped to provide its expertise across a range of legal sectors. With over 50 years of combined experience under its belt, Wildcat Law specialises in divorce, separation, and family law, inheritance, wills, and probate, commercial and contract law, property disputes, and telecoms law. Moreover, within these areas, Wildcat Law offers a wide range of professional services. The firm’s all-in-one service involves end-to-end guidance, including litigation, and is billed on an hourly basis. Whereas its court representation service is typically used by those who only need a lawyer to represent them in court, and, therefore, it is billed on a fixed fee basis per hearing. As meetings are typically held digitally, Wildcat Law attracts clients from across the country. Thanks to its devotion to this method, clients are able to acquire high quality legal services no matter where they are – so long as they have an internet connection, they are eligible to enquire in the firm’s services and take part in an initial consultation. No longer do clients have to travel to London for specialist advice. The team behind the success of the company is led by the highly talented, Tahina Akther, who holds the position of Head of Legal Services and Director. Her practice experience extends over almost two decades, within which Tahina has honed her skills as a barrister. In addition, she is particularly experienced in representing and advising people in the public eye including professional sportspeople, and high/ultra-high net worth clients. Such work has led her to work with multiple overseas clients. She holds positions on a number of committees and panels, such as the Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn Scholarship Panel. Inspired by her skills, Wildcat Law remains proudly boutique, only hiring lawyers that are compatible with its ethos and values. It endeavours to build an understanding of each employee’s career ambitions and, in turn, builds a plan in order to push them towards their dreams. Contrasting many firms, Wildcat Law is enthusiastic about bringing junior lawyers on board, this is because it possesses significant experience in training and coaching. Additionally, the law firm is passionate about maintaining a diverse and thriving workforce. Subsequently, Wildcat Law is set to have an increasingly successful future. It has numerous plans and goals that it is currently working towards fulfilling – one primary example is its mission to provide a ‘family office.’ For far too long has solid legal advice only been available to the wealthy, with family office services often only being available to the ultra-rich. Wildcat Law hopes to change this and is currently working towards obtaining FCA approval which will enable the law firm to provide its clients with this end-toend service, covering all their legal and financial advice needs.
