The Big Four Accountancy Firms

Taylor Root recognises the unique nature of the London legal market. Whilst some legal recruitment agencies focus their attention solely on Magic Circle and large international firms, we appreciate that there are also many other firms with outstanding reputations in their areas of focus, which can offer legal professionals a different type of career.

Taylor Root has a specialist desk which is focussed on working with the “Big Four” Accountancy Firms, Deloitte, PwC, KPMG and EY. With the exception of Deloitte, who is yet to enter the legal market, all established legal divisions and are making a significant impact on the legal market; which will play a key role in re-defining the legal industry.

As well as the attraction of working at one of the largest and most recognisable global brands, an advantage for any prospective lawyer looking to make this sort of move is that working at the Big Four presents a quasi-hybrid between a traditional private practice role; and working in an environment which is more aligned with an in-house culture. They typically offer an enhanced work/life balance for lawyers, a competitive City salary, as well as offering high levels of client exposure and the opportunity to play an integral part of the growth of the business moving forward.

As the market continues to evolve, the impact of the legal branches of the Big Four will only continue to increase. They are offering something different to mainstream legal practices and represent a significant threat to many established law firms.
