Helping clients and candidates alike

We use our unique network of global contacts to identify the best candidates for senior roles in both law firms and corporate legal/patent departments. We do this at national, European and global levels. Today more than 80 percent of our work is outside the UK. Because all our consultants and researchers are specialists, they bring deep insight, understanding and empathy to each assignment. We are trusted advisors, and our clients consistently tell us they receive high added value from this and our ‘client-first’ culture. We also pay close attention to the candidate experience, never forgetting we are an extension of our clients’ employer brand.
