Tenet’s founder, Arun Chauhan, has been shortlisted in The Law Society Excellence Awards 2020 in the ‘Sole Practitioner of the Year’ category.
The Sole Practitioner of the Year award celebrates innovative and pioneering practitioners, who provide exceptional solutions and foster unique ways of working within the constantly evolving industry.
Tenet Compliance and Litigation was founded to do things differently to the traditional law practice to help advise clients seeking to prevent and respond to fraud.
Part-time or flexible working is not commonplace at traditional legal practices, and, as a result, many lawyers with family commitments can find it difficult to secure roles that support their needs.
Understanding this issue entirely, having a young family himself, Arun founded Tenet and adopted a flexible working approach.
Since 2016, the team has worked remotely, with the option of a central office location whenever needed. The team – all from national or international law firm backgrounds – do not have fee targets, chargeable hours targets or cash collection targets, allowing the core focus to be placed on delivering high-quality work for clients.
The unique model allows Tenet’s team to deliver high-calibre work, without the concern or pressure of presenteeism. This has resulted in an overall happier team and has also increased client satisfaction, when coupled with the lower overheads of a fully dispersed model resulting in costs savings being passed onto clients to offer lower rates than competitors for the niche area of work Tenet undertake.
