Work with the most experienced, best-in-class lateral partner level recruiters worldwide. Our Legal Practice Group has a stellar track record in delivering partner and teams moves.

Combining global reach with detailed local market knowledge, we act on behalf of a select group of clients, comprising some of the world’s most respected law firms.

Exclusive retained search

Law firms enjoy our support on an exclusive, retained search basis – supported by named, dedicated consultants. This allows our specialists to focus solely on each client’s needs, forging deep, long-standing relationships and gathering the strategic insight they need to support their commercial success in all the key legal jurisdictions.

This approach is designed to minimise conflicts and give our consultants the freedom to select only the very best candidates for every assignment. It is the driving force behind our unrivalled track record and explains why law firms worldwide rely on us for business-critical strategic hires - from growing existing services lines and developing new practice offerings to facilitating office launches and mergers.

Unique insight

Clients do not simply rely on us to identify talent. They know that our focus on our consultants’ continuous professional development and on specialist markets means we are uniquely positioned to offer advice and insight that is not in the public domain, confidentially drawing on long established professional networks across every legal practice area.

Coupled with our consultants’ expertise and experience, that insight also informs the detailed market analysis that shapes our approach to every brief. It ensures that we explore every avenue in delivering highly focused shortlists and carrying out talent due diligence in order to mitigate the chance of a costly mis-hire.

Advise, close, convert

Crucially, our clients value our focus on commercial outcomes and trust us to deliver on their strategic needs – our ability to advise, close and convert partner moves saves our clients precious time.

In addition, clients know that we value open, honest partnership over short-term gain. For instance, while we take pride in delivering on the most challenging strategic assignments for our clients, we never take on an assignment if we do not have the capacity or the capability to deliver - we will always offer honest, expert advice if we think a brief is unrealistic or unachievable.

Quality and consistency

In everything we do our focus is on quality and consistency. Our Legal Practice Group has a proud record of successful delivery against retained search mandates undertaken to date. But we never rest on our laurels. We are always seeking extending our firm’s international legal capability through a combination of organic growth and select appointments, which ensures that our own growth does not come at the expense of our commitment to maintaining the highest standards of quality in everything we do.
