About us.

lustrum partners' mission
We exist to empower legal to deliver its real value to business. Our aim is to elevate GCs and legal functions - until legal reaches its full potential, a business cannot reach its own.

Many organisations don't realise they have a problem until they have a problem. The reality is, if you use lawyers in a narrow sense you get a narrow response.

We're on a mission to increase the impact of legal, so businesses are better protected against risk and better equipped to embrace opportunities.

a new approach

Lustrum's unique take.

Our approach is different because you're different.  We're led by your organisation, and will always provide bespoke solutions.

We're independent.

We have no ties to any law firms or service providers - we act entirely on what's best for your business and its specific requirements.

We've done the job.

With 40 years in-house experience between us, many spent as General Counsel, we know the job from every level and legal inside out.

We're practical & personal.

We don't get lost in theory, we focus on providing practical solutions, tailored to allow you to take it forward.

"We want to take the GC role to the next stage, so that those coming after us embrace discipline and rigour from the outset."

Positive challenge.
