Powering the growth of local law firms nationally

Welcome to
The MAPD Group

MAPD stands for 'Making a Positive Difference' - at MAPD, we believe in a better way of doing business:

  • We know that a successful business can be a fun business.
  • We know that human to human interactions and connections make a positive difference...
  • We know that potential can be found in all kinds of places.
  • We passionately believe that law firms are uniquely placed to create 'MAPD Moments' for clients, whether they're in highly stressed or distressed situations, excited about a new project, or somewhere in between.

And we know that making a positive difference starts from the inside out ...

Our People

We do this through our people - MAPD people - our differentiators, empowering them to create outstanding Human to Human (H2H) interactions, enabled by technology and supported by strong infrastructure, culture and personal development opportunities.

We're all about trying to create an AWESOME journey for those who want to 'jump on the rocket', 'smash the rear view mirror', 'look to the future' and create an experience internally and externally not found in other law firms!

MAPD people are all different but fundamentally they all want to make a positive difference to and for others

Law Firms in the UK

Our philosophy

Our businesses are powered by MAPD and our MAPD way of thinking.

The MAPD Way balances people, client, quality and profit in equal measure.

  • It is a privilege to help our people to grow and realise their potential.
  • It is a privilege to be able to help clients.
  • We are very careful with that privilege.

Who you are

We know one size doesn't fit all, we don't believe in change for change's sake and we know that the first rule of acquisitions is first do no harm.

We want to collaborate to make your business better, not pull it apart and lose all the things that have made it what it is today.

Want to get on the rocket with us?

We want firms whose people want to share the journey and grow something great together!
What really makes us tick is working WITH you to lead and manage your business and to take away the headaches.

We're not looking to change things for the sake of it; we see the benefit of your brand in your area and we understand how important your people are to you.

We want firms that can show a positive sustainable trend of profitability, not necessarily growth (although that'd be good)!

How will it work?

Being 'Powered by MAPD' means that the MAPD Group acquires the members' interests of the LLP, or entire share capital of the firm.

This can be structured in many different ways depending on type of firm, practice areas, working capital requirements, WIP, Capital Accounts, sustainable profitability etc . . .
