Thomson Wilks Inc. is expanding aggressively. We are looking to appoint experienced, high calibre attorneys with an established client base or the potential to develop a client base.

We offer a unique working environment which allows our attorneys the flexibility to establish their own balance between work and family and still enjoy the same levels of support and professionalism usually offered by medium and large sized conventional law firms.

Our attorneys work from a home office or other premises remote from the head office. They do not need to travel to work but have access to workstations, should it be convenient to work from the office from time to time. They work at their own pace, according to their own schedule, and have access to all of the facilities and resources offered by the Thomson Wilks head office in Sandton and its offices in Cape Town and Durban.

We are not prescriptive with our attorneys in terms of targets or fee rates. Our attorneys set their own targets and establish their own hourly fee rate. They work to their own schedule and earnings depend upon their own input. Our attorneys receive 75% of all recovered fees written.

Should you be appointed as an attorney with the firm, our IT expert will arrange an ADSL internet connection at your home or office, which will connect you to our intranet and server. You will receive a Thomson Wilks e-mail address, a profile on our website and you will have access to other on-line products. Your clients will receive invitations to our cricket suite at Wanderers and will receive invitations to participate in regularly organised promotional activities. We also have a PR firm on a permanent retainer to assist in developing the public profile of the firm and its attorneys.

Our accounts department will take care of invoicing, collections, client account queries and the distribution of fees collected. We manage the trust account and all deposits into and payments from it. We take care of the annual trust audit, BEE accreditation (we are presently a level 1 contributor) and maintain significant professional indemnity insurance. We provide messenger assistance, service requirements, branded stationery and business cards. You will have access to our law library, use of our fully equipped and well appointed boardrooms, access to typing facilities, litigation support and research assistance. You will receive all of the resources necessary to ensure that you are able to provide an efficient and professional service to your clients, irrespective of where you choose to practice.

You could be an attorney with a large firm looking to take charge of your own life, or a sole practitioner tired of the monotony and the cost of single-handedly managing your own practice at the expense of fee-generating activities, or you may simply be an attorney looking for more flexibility. Thomson Wilks offers you the opportunity to make the change. Give us a call and set up an appointment to find out more.
