Introducing our Virtual CEO, Rob Patterson


The Found Group and its subsidiary, FCW Lawyers are excited to announce the appointment of Rob Patterson as CEO, or virtual CEO that is.

Rob Patterson has lived and breathed professional services his whole career. From Insolvency at Deloitte, to COO at HWL Ebsworth; from conventional partnerships to an incorporated New Law firm, he has traversed and gained an unparalleled, first-hand understanding of what makes the industry tick, grow and profitable.

He recently hit upon his perfect job! Terming his role as a “virtual CEO”, Rob works with flesh and blood Managing Partners of boutique and early stage firms, like FCW, assisting them with strategy implementation, organic and inorganic growth, IT and finance.

“It is exciting and invigorating working closely with early-stage law firms that are truly innovative and represent the future direction of law” said Rob. “FCW’s focus on the development and well-being of staff, achieved through professional coaching, focused technical development and tailored health and well-being programs sets it as a leader in its field.”

Rob notes that “it is no surprise FCW continues to grow so quickly and will soon be expanding through the addition of a commercial law capability” given clients benefit from interacting with a highly motivated team; one eager to provide value in every exchange, respond quickly to client needs and be totally transparent as to the strategy and progress of matters,.

“Rob and I worked together in a national commercial law-firm. During this time I was greatly impressed by his strategic approach and thoughtful and caring manner. His industry experience and generosity in sharing his insights made his appointment a no-brainer,” Andrew Douglas, FCW Managing Partner.
