Obelisk Support, the legal services provider for FTSE companies and law firms HQ-ed in London, was today named as one of the top 25% fastest growing companies in Europe – at no 1,171 out of 5,000 companies ranked in the 2018 edition of “Inc. 5000” Europe.
“We are thrilled to be listed in the Inc. 5000 list in 2018 as is a testament to the important legal needs we solve for our customers,” said Dana Denis-Smith, CEO of Obelisk Support. “Our clients trust Obelisk to help them with their legal work by matching the right skills to each job; importantly, I am proud of this achievement as it shows that driving positive change in the legal industry by being focused on people has a positive impact on financial performance; our social impact ethos means that our 1,000+ lawyers are loyal to us because we are committed to change the opportunities they have to work differently.”
In addition to Obelisk Support, the Inc. 5000 Europe list added notable companies such as HelloFresh, Dyson, Moo and Coolblue. You are in some pretty impressive company—which is exactly where you belong. As an Inc. 5000 Europe honouree, Obelisk Support Solutions now shares a pedigree with Intuit, Under Armour, Microsoft, Timberland, Pandora, Patagonia, Oracle, and dozens of other prominent recent U.S. alumni.
Obelisk Support is a revolutionary multi award-winning legal services company that connects law firms and in-house legal teams to highly-experienced corporate lawyers who want to work flexibly, whether for family or other reasons. Denis-Smith founded the business after becoming dismayed at the numbers of women she saw leaving the profession for family reasons – and realising this could be a key untapped pool of talent for innovative firms and in-house teams prepared to take a more flexible approach.
For 37 years, Inc. has welcomed the fastest-growing private companies into a very exclusive club. To be sure, considering the millions of private companies operating throughout Europe, being listed on the Inc. 5000 Europe is a significant achievement. The median company on the list increased sales by more than 254% since the start of 2013, while the average honouree grew a mind-boggling 473%. Those are results most companies could only dream of in the economy of the past three years.
“In an incredibly competitive business landscape, it takes something extraordinary to take your company to the top,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “The founders and CEOs of the Inc. 5000 Europe tell us they think determination, risk taking, and vision were the keys to their success, and I believe them.”
