Cleveland & Co was formed in September 2012 by Emma Cleveland. Previously to forming Cleveland & Co, Emma worked with a variety of in-house teams in some of the world’s leading investment management companies. Emma launched Cleveland & Co after identifying that:

  1. in-house legal teams often don’t have the time and resources to deal with the high volumes of work that they encounter on a daily basis;
  2. firms are looking for alternative services providers in the wake of resource and cost cutting; and
  3. it can be tough for firms to find the right expertise and resource on a temporary basis.

Emma realised that she could bridge the gap between in-house and external counsel and this is what Cleveland & Co has been doing ever since, by providing the excellent service that law firms deliver, at a competitive price, whilst maintaining the in-house needs of the firm.
