Sherwood PSF Consulting

Consultants to professional service firms.

Law firms. Barristers' chambers. In-house legal teams. That's where we work.

Consulting. Facilitation. Education. Coaching. That's what we do.

And in our field, we will be surprised if you can find anyone more experienced, more effective or easier to work with.

Over the years, we have won (or helped our clients win) awards for our programme designs and delivery, including:

  • FT European Survey of Innovative Law Firms 
  • LETG Training Organisation/Trainer of the Year

More recently Sherwood was a leading provider assisting Penningtons Manches LLP in the design and delivery of its Partner Designate programme. The programme won the 2015 HR in Law Award for Excellence in Learning & Development.

Sherwood has recently interviewed 28 law firms as part of a research project for the Legal Education and Training Group looking at what different firms are doing to encourage more female lawyers through to partnership and senior leadership levels. The results of the research are contained in our report which we think makes interesting reading. Please click here to access the report.

In the 2015/16 silk competition 51/107 new silks worked with Sherwood in some shape or form, with advice and support at either the application or interview stages, or indeed both.
That is 48% of all the silks made up in 2016.  Our success rate was 63% compared to 45% for the whole competition.
