Edwards Gibson specialises in placing law firm partners across all disciplines and practices into the leading UK, US, and international law firms. We have extensive experience of partner representation, having placed scores of equity and fixed share partners, as well as assisting countless senior associates in their first lateral move into partnership.

We approach partner recruitment scientifically; we track all commercial law firm moves in London (see our bi-monthly Law Firm Partner Moves in London 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. 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. 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 'Quantifying your following and writing an effective law firm business plan' and our Sample 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.
