PRESS RELEASE: Taylor Root launch two new offices: Dublin and Birmingham

Today 10th September 2019, legal recruitment specialist Taylor Root launches two new offices in Dublin and Birmingham, increasing their global network of international offices across 10 countries.

Our Dublin office will be headed up by Hamish Richmond and will focus on legal recruitment across the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. Hamish has specialised in Irish legal recruitment for several years working with Irish law firms and in-house legal teams within Irish-based blue chip organisations. Hamish has worked for Taylor Root for seven years and prior to moving to Dublin he gained experience in a number of jurisdictions, including Sydney, Hong Kong and London.

Hamish Richmond, Associate Director, commented, “The Dublin launch is a very exciting time for Taylor Root. The Irish legal market has seen a period of sustained growth as a result of the strong economy and the effects of Brexit which has led to banks, companies and law firms looking to grow their capabilities in Dublin as well as other regions. We are looking forward to growing the Taylor Root brand across Ireland using our expertise and unrivalled global reach to meet our clients’ needs.”

Our Birmingham office will focus on legal recruitment across the Midlands and will be spearheaded by Darryn Hale, Partner in our private practice division. Taylor Root are delighted to have hired two of the most experienced legal recruitment specialists in the Midland’s market, James Brewster and Chloe Matthews, both of whom have been recruiting lawyers into law firms for many years.

Darryn Hale, Partner commented “The regional recruitment markets are growing and changing rapidly. We already act for many of the firms who have a strong presence in Birmingham and these clients have been very encouraging of our ambition to establish an office in the City. Our reputation is built on the high-quality consultative service that we deliver to both Clients and Candidates and we are looking forward to replicating this in the Midlands market.”

Julian Stone, Senior Partner of Taylor Root added “In our 30th year we are excited to grow our business and launch Taylor Root in both Dublin and Birmingham. These two office openings are part of our strategy to adjust to the continuous economic shifts as well as having strategic locations which enhance our offering to the law firms and in-house teams we partner with.”
