Let's talk about your legal career.

We care about your career.  And we use the word ‘career’ because we want to work with you throughout your working life. Even when you are happy in your role, you should be thinking about the next step. That next step doesn’t have to result in a move but either way, we can advise you and guide you with honesty and market knowledge. 


Call or email us and we’ll give you a career appraisal. Our London legal recruitment experience enables us to tell you whether you are being paid the market rate, how your firm is ranked and give you an idea of the alternatives in the market. We’ll even provide a CV template and business plan. And, every conversation is confidential and free of expectation.

We just wanted to assure all our candidates that are currently in the middle of a legal recruitment process (or about to begin one) that we are doing everything we can to ensure that the process moves forward as smoothly as possible. Like our clients, we are following all the guidance available and implementing it as best we can. Where it is needed, we will proceed with interviews using video conferencing, Skype, FaceTime or equivalent. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions about this. Thank you for reading.



We take a long-term approach to recruitment. It’s not just about your next role, it’s about your career path. By taking an honest and consultative outlook, we make sure that you get the right advice and the benefit of our market knowledge throughout your career.

We’ll carry out a career health check, help with the initial CV and interview process and ensure that you are fully appraised of everything the market has to offer. We’ll be with you every step of the way so you won’t be doing this alone!


We understand how important it is to hire the most talented lawyers. We also appreciate the value of keeping your existing people as engaged as possible. It can be time consuming and costly to continuously hire new starters.

With many years’ experience, we take a transparent approach, ensuring that you get the most capable lawyers and a stress-free process. Our legal recruitment in London operates across all levels (from newly qualified solicitors through to partners) and we ensure that our candidate relationships are built on market knowledge, trust and integrity.
