What we do 

by providing a range of bespoke legal recruitment services across the UK and internationally.  We work for you: to your timelines and within your budget.  We take pride in our work and in the completion of each mandate.  Your priorities become our priorities, to ensure that, at the end of the process, you have the right lawyer for you.


Why work with us

We Are small and focused on you

we do not beat the drum.  Our small team is personal and our in-depth methods uncover qualities not obvious by simply reading a CV.  We use our experience and insight to identify each lawyer's attributes, along with the relevant skill set, to focus our search to find the best match for you. We treat clients with respect and openness; in this way, amongst others, we avoid putting ourselves in a position of conflict between clients.

We Are good at matchmaking
so we ensure you are confident in your final choice of lawyer.  We excel at creating matches where the outstanding lawyers we place will thrive, adding substantial value to both their careers and to the employers who will profit from their strengths.  We help you identify a definite alignment between the content of the role and the business strategy.  We never recommend you see anyone who we do not think is right for the role. 
we offer in-depth market knowledge
in terms of personalities, teams and salaries, across a wide variety of practice areas.  Our clients are from both private practice and the corporate world, however we do have a particular strength within the London hedge fund industry.​ We are able to add enormously to the search process as a result of our own market due diligence giving us added depth in understanding and knowledge.
We save you time and money 
by working on your behalf.  We know that your time is money, so we utilise our experience to work efficiently and cost-effectively, to find what you need through the process your prefer.
