Thomson Geer was featured in an article published by Lawyers Weekly on Monday 21 August. The article focussed on the potential advantages for staff from a listed structure.
Chief Executive Partner, Adrian Tembel, provided comments to Lawyers Weekly.
“We are, piece by piece, step by step, transforming the organisation into an organisation that could be fit and ready for a listed environment at some point in the future” he said. Aside from the key benefit of greater access to capital, he said listing would enable the firm to distribute equity beyond the ranks of its partnership and create greater engagement among all its people”.
Adrian spoke the significant cultural shift required. “We think it would be a huge mistake for anyone to rush into a listing event, and it takes a number of years to be ready”.
