I found David Thomson to be excellent during my search for a role upon qualification. I would highly recommend David to anybody seeking further opportunities. Particularly Irish lawyers based abroad seeking a return to home shores.  David’s market knowledge and ability to offer practical and reliable advice was highly helpful during what can be a stressful time. Furthermore, David really goes the extra mile by staying in touch at the conclusion of the process ensuring that the move and the new role are both working out. Great to deal with.
