Alliance partners

As a boutique, local firm, we do not plan to try to provide all services to our clients that they may need. We have found that many clients have leveraged our networks to find people or organisations suitable to a specific challenge.

In establishing Coxswain Alliance, we have formalised the relationship with a number of trusted, expertise-driven groups; through working collaboratively with these groups, we have been able to expand and round out our ability to meet our clients’ needs.
