Our Approach

One of our core methodologies, is that we ensure that we take the time to get to know our clients. We want to clearly understand your requirements, the positives and he the challenges, allowing us to present the legal market with their opportunities in an informative manner and allowing us to source candidates that have the correct background, experience, motivation and personality. Our dedicated research team analyses the market data for each individual project and we tailor our approach and methodology specifically to our client’s requirements.

Our search process starts with a open discussion with clients on what they aim to achieve, the current market conditions and the most effective strategy for success. We do not advocate a ‘one size fits all approach’- on the contrary, our methods are always bespoke, presenting the most effective approach for each individual client. We provide tailored market-mapping data (often adopting a multi-jurisdictional approach) highlighting current market trends and ultimately, providing a comprehensive list of potential targets with an evaluation of potential suitability for the specific role or projects.

After discussing the target list with our clients, we professionally and diligently approach potential candidates presenting the opportunity to them resulting in a short list of candidates available for interview by our clients. As with all recruitment processes, we assist with offer management and resignation processes to ensure an end result that is beneficial for both client and candidates.
