We offer a seamless service aimed at creating long-standing relationships

I qualified into the Corporate Insurance team at Hogan Lovells in 2000. I moved into legal recruitment in 2003 and worked both in London and Madrid, placing lawyers in to both law firms and Industry & Commerce.

I joined Kinsella Legal in 2012, wanting to be part of a highly experienced and talented team which values honesty, market expertise, strong professional relationships and results – rather than gimmicks! I have experience of recruiting and placing lawyers at all levels, from newly qualified team members up to General Counsel, across a wide range of sectors. I have a particular focus on first-time legal appointments into start-ups and VC-backed businesses.

Most of my work focusses on London and the UK, but I have also worked with clients in the UAE, Spain and in off-shore jurisdictions. My clients include Virgin, Just Eat, Farfetch, Nintendo, King, Deliveroo, Travelex, Ratesetter, McLaren, Ofcom and the IOC, as well as family offices and boutique FS houses. As part of a seamless service aimed at creating long-standing relationships, I advise clients on salary benchmarking and I work on both permanent and contract roles, on a contingent and retained basis.
