Our private practice service mirrors the expertise and values that underpin our success and reputation in the in-house market.

I bring over 10 years’ experience as a legal recruiter within private practice; with a successful track record of placing lawyers at all levels from NQ to equity partner. Before moving into recruitment, I was a Barristers’ Clerk and worked as a paralegal whilst I studied for my law degree.

Having learned the ropes at a large City recruiter, I moved to a boutique start-up in 2009, where I began to develop partner lateral recruitment expertise. I have since completed search mandates for a number of the UK’s leading law firms and counselled numerous senior lawyers on managing their next moves.

I have a particular interest and expertise within the legal disciplines related to TMT and innovation, as well as Employment/HR and Real Estate. My clients range from major international law firms (including Magic Circle and US firms) to highly specialist boutiques.

Although the UK is my primary market, I have recruited throughout Europe, Asia, the Middle East, the Caribbean and South America.

I place a high value on building and sustaining long-term business relationships. Candidates and clients return to me for informed and measured advice, the breadth of my network and my professional diligence.
