At Kinsella Legal, the clients who we engage with are key to our success – we work only with those who we are proud to represent.
We are often the “recruiter of choice” for many companies and firms who will only come to us because they know that we deliver.
Each consultant at Kinsella Legal works for a small selection of clients across a range of sectors. We don’t parade a plethora of consultants in front of you, each offering a different service. We get to know you and your business, which means that whether you are recruitng for a fixed term contract lawyer or a permanent member of the team, you deal with the same person. We are fully invested in offering a full service consultancy and do not carve up our client relationships for the sake of promoting internal competition between consultants.
