Our Story

Acquira Professional Services has been active in the field of mergers & acquisitions for law firms since 2004. With the founder’s background as a lawyer in the legal sector, it made sense to move into M&A for law firms and the growing and exciting market for legal tech companies.

Jeff Zindani Founder and Managing Director of Acquira Professional Services

Jeff Zindani

Founder and Managing Director

Jeff has over 25 years’ experience in the law and has been an equity partner at Russell Jones and Walker, now Slater & Gordon. 

He has been described by law firm clients as "insightful", "market sensitive" and "incredibly discrete".


He advises both city type practices and boutique law firms on the challenges facing their businesses now and in the future. He has built up an impressive client list of law firms and legal tech companies.

 

He enjoys facilitating deals and is an expert on providing solutions for law firms looking to merge, acquire or to redesign their practices. He is able to guide firms from start to finish and to maximise returns on their capital, work in progress and goodwill.

 

Although normally retained on a contingent basis, he provides in house advice on M & A processes and regularly helps firms as a consultant to identify suitable targets for merger, acquisition or sale.

Pierre Watson Head of Talent Acquisition at Acquira Professional Services

Pierre Watson

Head of Talent Acquisition

Pierre is Head of Talent Acquisition. That is, sourcing and acquiring talented individuals for your law firm. He focuses on bespoke headhunting in the legal sector, senior-level executive search, coaching and selection, and has over 15 years’ experience in enabling clients to secure the right professionals for their businesses.

 

His approach steers away from traditional recruiting methods, for example, tending not to be candidate CV-centric, in order to seek 'deep dive' insights into career thinking from those legal professionals with a track record and an established following. The method is discreet and sometimes a little 'off the wall', as the best results originate from relaxed and informal conversations with potential hires. 

 

Pierre is happy to talk on the telephone, or in person, to explore your options in facilitating your firm’s growth plans through the addition of key people and he can be contacted at pierre@acquiraps.co.uk.
