Over the years, we’ve helped to build established connections and networks within the Magic Circle and Silver Circle firms, as well as the UK’s wider top 200 and US law firms.

In addition, our reputation for sourcing high-calibre personnel has attracted assignments from within HR functions, including finance, insurance, and professional services.
