We approach partner recruitment scientifically; we track all commercial law firm moves in London (see our bi-monthly Partner Moves  publication) and, together with a host of financial and non-financial tools, objectively analyse the market on your behalf in order to find client and business synergies for your practice. Currently, we are compiling our November-December 2021 Partner Moves, which are evidencing an increase in lateral hiring activity compared to last year as well as the previous 5-year, and 10-year averages.

We won't just tell you about live opportunities, we'll arm you with all the information you'll need about the evolution of relevant firms and departments to enable you to make a truly informed choice on the very best firm for your practice to thrive. We build deep trusting relationships with the partners we represent, many of whom go on to become long term clients. We save you time by providing hands on assistance at each milestone of the process - in particular, we bring significant experience of business planning (see our article on  writing an effective business plan), assist with drafting and provide secretarial help, as well as providing objective negotiation advice.

We are always available, regularly taking calls well into the evening, weekends and public holidays, and we like to think that the partners we represent are given the best service in the market - if you don't believe us please allow us to put you in touch with them.
