Having spent more than 40 years between them working within traditional law firm structures, Mark Archer and Joss Alcraft decided that they wanted to create something unique in the legal sector and founded Maddox Legal in January 2018. A law firm with a difference.
Maddox Legal offers a no compromise solution to the legal needs of businesses.
No compromise on quality; we are personable, precise, efficient, highly commercial and always available. We strike an excellent balance between getting the deal done and protecting our clients’ interests. Our engagement letter includes a service level agreement which defines how responsive we will be in our dealings with all our clients. In every case a Partner will be responsible for fulfilling our obligations to you and every client will be treated as a priority client.
No compromise on cost; costs budgets are agreed in advance with clients and generally we will work to an agreed fixed fee rather than to an hourly rate. There are no surprises.
No compromise on experience; the Founders are entrepreneurs themselves. Not only do they own Maddox Legal but they have been businesses owners elsewhere and sit on the boards of diverse companies.
Our philosophy is simple. Focus on the things that matter. Do the best for the client. Deliver on service, within budget, each and every time.
Our partnership with Mark and Joss at Maddox has been incredibly fruitful. From the start they have advised us expertly on the legal and technical aspects of our bond raise. The bond was listed on the Vienna Stock Exchange (MTF) at the start of the journey – a process which Mark and Joss handled personally and made the most of their excellent relationships with the Stock Exchange. Subsequent to this they have remained on hand, giving expert guidance at every step of the way, becoming invaluable partners to our business. Creating our bond, listing it and monetising it were all significant tasks, with multiple unknown hurdles. It has been great having Maddox by our side and they have significantly assisted in us achieving all of our goals.
The Barry-Wehmiller group of companies is a market-leading US headquartered three billion dollar turnover industrial group with operations across the globe. We have instructed Joss Alcraft on the majority of our English law matters over the last 8 years, particularly our mergers and acquisitions work. Joss has been a pleasure to work with – he is diligent, pro-active and highly astute. He strikes an excellent balance between getting the deal done and protecting our interests.
