We are a dynamic, agile and fast-moving business passionate about Legal Recruitment. Our ongoing success has been inspired by our clients’ expansion strategies, of which we are a key component. We enjoy close relationships with a number of top tier national firms; the Big 4; Magic Circle, Silver Circle, White Shoe American firms to boutique specialists. It is this network that feeds into our in-depth market knowledge and expertise, and enables us to guide both clients and candidates towards best outcomes. We are a vibrant results-based business with a totally ethical underpin.

We constantly strive to add value to the entire process by understanding motivations and drivers that govern mood and behaviours; we always aim to get it right, each time. This requires tact, empathy and business maturity. We think long term. We deliver excellence, and have recently been accredited by the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Programme, as being expert in field, and are further graduates of the Goldman Sachs Re-Imaging Business Programme to ensure that we have the skills to adapt in a rapidly changing market.

No matter your position, experience or aspirations, we can help. We recognise the faith you place in us by putting your career in our hands – we covet this. We thrive on fulfilling your needs.
