private practice

We recruit Partners, Teams and Associates into international and domestic law firms including magic and silver circle, city, regional and niche firms, as well and US and transatlantic merger firms. Our highly experienced team of private practice consultants each specialise in a specific sector or legal practice area. We recruit lawyers into law firms around the world including London, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, North America, Africa and offshore.

advertised selection

There are specific occasions when we may strongly recommend the use of advertising – these include unusual high profiled roles, location, high volume recruitment and company branding activities. Our strong relationships with media and advertising agencies ensure we are able to offer our clients the most competitive price as well as gaining some of the most premium positions within publications and online.

in-house

Our in-house team of consultants recruit lawyers across all levels of seniority including General Counsel, Heads of Legal, Senior Counsel, Legal Counsel and Company Secretaries. We partner with a broad range of clients including financial institutions, corporates, governments, regulators, small to medium enterprises and start-ups. Our highly experienced team of in-house consultants each focus on a specific industry sector.

interim solutions

Demand for lawyers to work on an interim basis is at an all-time high, as clients look to reduce costs and incorporate greater flexibility in their recruitment strategies. Whether this has been a two-week interim compliance hire or a twelve-month General Counsel appointment, we are able to introduce an extremely specific shortlist of immediately available candidates, providing not only a quick and flexible solution for our client, but a cost effective one too.

retained search

Retained search is at the core of what we do. We have helped negotiate advancing career moves for many of the world’s most prominent lawyers. This is a more streamlined process, which requires not only complete participation on the client’s side, but also a retainer. This search option provides clients with the “fast-track” option, extensive resources, in-depth screening, and competitive intelligence within the market. If you invest in us as your legal recruiting partner, you become our top priority- and the results with show.

market mapping

We offer bespoke, relevant, market maps that provide invaluable insight into active and passive candidate communities within specific legal practice areas or sectors across all jurisdictions. Our mapping service is carried out by specialist legal consultants and expert researchers. Working with internal recruitment teams we can help our clients increase their headhunting capability to gain a more comprehensive understanding of their market position.

team moves

We appreciate that sometimes law firms and organisations alike need long-standing and established teams to join their business and so we are steadfast in recruiting for team moves. Our relationships with lawyers and compliance professional in the sectors which we operate give us immediate access to the highest calibre candidates available.

insourcing

Our consultant secondment programmes enables our clients to make smart resourcing decisions when recruiting for larger volume legal positions that reduce fixed investment or an over reliance on more expensive executive search firms. These secondments range from part to full time, remote to onsite.

contingency search

Our specialist approach to legal recruitment means that we can introduce targeted, qualified and available candidates to you within very short timescales. The potent combination of a powerful and extensive database, our deep industry contacts combined with an excellent reputation in the industry allows us to deliver exceptional candidates quickly on an ‘exclusive success’ basis, only charging a fee once we have found the right candidate.
