General Counsel

We have extensive experience in the General Counsel market, having worked on high level assignments since we were first established in 1989. Due to the depth of our relationships within the General Counsel community and our strong reputation, we are able to transact General Counsel search assignments swiftly and effectively, through an extensive market mapping exercise and also tapping into our network of General Counsel clients and senior lawyers we have worked with.

We are able to deliver shortlists in a matter of weeks as opposed to months and our General Counsel team collaborates across all of our global offices to ensure that our shortlists represent the best General Counsel talent available in the market.

We regularly conduct research on behalf of our General Counsel clients including detailed salary benchmarking exercises and market mapping to provide guidance on particular markets. From our international offices in the US, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Australia we work with General Counsel from a variety of industries, either helping them to source the best talent for their team or providing them with advice on their next career choice.
