About us

Who we are
We are experienced headhunters with a background from the largest recruitment companies in the City and from legal practice. 

We take a long-term view in all actions which allows us to support our people and provide the best service to our candidates and clients. We promote long-lasting, successful placements with our clients over quick wins and focus
on results rather than activity. 

We have a handful of staff and, following continued success, are expanding by hiring the right people for our team and clients. 

What we do
We recruit qualified lawyers for the leading US and UK private practice law firms in the City of London. 

We have particular strength in corporate, finance, funds, competition and tax although we have made placements across other areas. We are open to those who want to specialise in these practice areas as well as those who would like to build a team servicing other practice areas for our clients or other comparable firms. Our expertise is in dealing with the elite US, Magic Circle and leading International Law Firms in London but we would be open to those who would like to focus on different segments of the market where they may have existing relationships for instance.
Why join us?
For juniors, we offer excellent training and a personal approach to your development. We focus on quality not quantity and give you the time you need to succeed in a supportive environment. 

For mid-level and seniors, as an owner-managed business we are looking for people we can support inot into management and leadership positions as we grow the business and develop new markets. We would love to hear from peopel who are ambitious to build their own teams and in time there will be opportunities to take profit shares and equity.

Legal recruitment is a high-margin business and we offer the best commission structure in the market because we believe in paying people fairly. We value career progression and want to provide our staff with meaningful, rewarding work. To this end, there are career progression prospects not only for team managers and big billers but also good trainers and knowledgeable recruiters. 

All consultants will benefit from resourcer support as well as referred candidates from the directors.

We are friendly and relaxed but dedicated.
