WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO

We are a dedicated, energetic team of legal recruiters providing personalized service at every stage in the process. Our team features ex-lawyers and an Olympic medallist. Our work is research-heavy and candidate-focused. We are straight-talking, pragmatic, and ready to help.

Our job is to find you the right role. It’s just that simple. In order to do that, we endeavour to get to know you, what you’re looking for and why. This helps us to be targeted about your job search. We may ask you hard questions. Why move now and not in a few months? What is your bottom line re: salary given your lifestyle? Do you want to become a partner, or do you see yourself taking another path? We will meet you for a coffee or a drink to discuss your career at a time and location that suits you. We are not trying to make your days any more complicated. Our entire process is designed to make your job hunt as simple and streamlined as it can be, to allow you to focus on your day job and life outside the office.

WE AREN'T LIKE OTHER RECRUITERS

Our job is not 9-6, because yours isn’t. We are ready and willing to meet you before work, have calls later in the evening when you’re finally home, and talk on the weekends as necessary. Our business is designed to make your life easier. One of our candidates referred to this as a “concierge” level of service, and that’s true. We are here to make this major transition as easy as possible for you.

We will never send your CV anywhere without your specific written consent. This would seem to be an obvious rule that every recruiter should follow, but it is not the industry standard. We promise, your CV is safe with us. When you meet one of our consultants, then you’ll work with that person. There is no bait and switch. Our approach is targeted and personal. Our core principle is ethical recruitment – doing things the right way, without cutting any corners.

Working with us, you won’t need to do any outside research into firms. Instead, our incredible research team will provide you with every bit of information you could need about firms, practices, partners, their latest transactions or cases, and what they are looking for. You will be fully equipped with all of the relevant data without having to lift a finger. Before each interview you will receive an information packet from us about the partners, along with proposed questions to ask at the end of the interview.


Over and over we hear from our candidates that we are not like other recruiters. If you’re looking for a career-long relationship with a recruiter who will take the time to get to know you, be available when you need them, and give you everything you need to interview with preparation and confidence, look no further.
