We are a market-leading legal, risk and compliance search and recruitment consultancy, offering employees the benefits of joining a genuine global leader with an entrepreneurial approach.
Choose your path
We are proud to be a market leader in legal, risk and compliance search and recruitment.
Having operated since 1989, we work with many of the most prestigious law firms and businesses around the world. Through 13 international offices and clients and candidates in every corner of the world, we have unrivalled global reach.
We also actively encourage our employees to work overseas, ensuring that our global reach offers huge opportunities for your career, too.
We are part of The SR Group, a renowned group of specialist recruitment consultancies devoted to different markets – offering further ways to develop your career.
How we work
We encourage you to work independently. You have the freedom to build your own client base and manage your own time.
But you are supported by an experienced team at all times and a culture where our values – being authentic, collaborative, agile and expert – are attitudes that we live and breathe every day.
It is an approach that brings out the best in people time and time again.
Wellbeing and mental health
We are passionate about mental health and supporting our employees’ wellbeing at all times.
Every year we run two ‘Wellbeing Weeks’ and release our ‘Mental Health Matters’ magazine. In recognition of everyone’s hard work, we often gift employees paid time off to recharge – for example around World Mental Health Day – and have signed up to the Mindful Business Charter.
Proudly, we also give all our people access to six free, independently run counselling sessions a year – and encourage everyone to use them. And we have trained mental health first aiders at many of our global offices.
Throughout the working year we also offer lots of other content and events aimed at supporting mental wellbeing at the workplace – and beyond.
Diversity, equity and inclusion
As recruiters, we play a vital role in making workplaces more progressive – and as a business, we are on a journey to becoming the most diverse, inclusive and transparent company we can be.
Examples of actions we are taking include our diversity manifesto, setting out pledges to improve our diversity practices, membership of the Mindful Business Charter, which supports better mental health in the workplace, and a dedicated diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) committee, in place to drive change across the company.
Whether you call it agile, hybrid or flexible working, we are committed to giving you the freedom to work in a way that fits your lifestyle. We all have a life outside of work, and it is important that we are able to live it.
So, whether you want to drop your kids at school, squeeze in a quick trip to the gym, or just work when you are at your most productive, you can do so.
We just want to create the conditions for you to be at your best and happiest, in or out of work.
Learning and development
You won’t find off-the-shelf trainee schemes and tired training models here.
With our dedicated, in-house learning, we pool resources across The SR Group to ensure best-in-class learning and development throughout your career. Our highly experienced teams provide a local and global network of mentorship opportunities.
And because we know growth comes from looking beyond ourselves too, so we also invest in external expertise to offer a different perspective on your development.
Our approach to management is built around empowerment. We may well shape the ‘what’, but you will be in charge of the ‘how’.
It is an autonomous model, where you are given the freedom to get the job done, your way. But of course, the guidance of all our experienced leaders is always there.
We review performance against your goals throughout the year, and we run weekly check-ins. You will also get monthly updates on how you are tracking against your goals.
Part of our workforce are parents – and we know that it is about more than just flexibility. Itis about not missing parents’ evening, or your team understanding what it means when childcare falls through.
So, in addition to agile working policies – which give you the flexibility to adapt your working patterns to childcare needs – we take the time to get to know your personal circumstances and needs.
We offer childcare support in every way we can – you don’t have to choose between having a career and having a family.
We don’t just support international transfers between our network of global offices – we actively encourage them.
Relocations are offered frequently, between London, New York, Dubai and beyond. They are life-changing moves that are fantastic for your career, and our company.
And we support you every step of the way, helping you to navigate all the admin and jump through all the hoops, so you can hit the ground running in your new home.
You are supported in your role by a wide range of internal teams.
Our marketing team support you in creating content, running events and building your personal brand, while our HR team are here to look after your wellbeing and everything that might affect your day-to-day life.
Our finance team handle anything invoice-related so you don’t have to, while our internal recruitment teams all over the world help to keep us growing. Then there’s client services, who will help write proposals that win us business, and our legal teams who ensure we do everything by the book.
Plus, there are all kinds of brilliant support staff, from IT specialists to executive assistants, here to set you up for success.
Socials and incentives
We are a sociable business, and our social events and incentives are frequent and varied. After all, not everyone’s idea of fun is the same.
We love bringing our global teams together for giant summer parties too – celebrations that offer something for everyone.
All offices have their own holiday traditions – like New York’s legendary desk decorating competition.
And we also offer a top biller incentive, which offers cash rewards for our top performers.
We know how important time off is in a fast-paced industry like recruitment.
So, we are always closed during December holidays, giving you valuable time to re-charge.
And after five years of service, we grant an extra ten days of leave – and encourage you to take a month off to do something special.
We also offer paid time off for volunteering. We are passionate about giving you the freedom to support the charities that matter most to you.

Corporate social responsibility
Our social purpose agenda is based on using our vast global marketing and sales networks and experience to help charities in any way we can.
Acknowledging the power of our connections, the breadth of our list of charity clients and the footprint we have across the sector, it became clear that we had plenty to offer.
Some of the initiatives we’ve developed include:
- A platform that connects marketing and sales professionals willing to volunteer for free to small charities with limited budgets
- Pro bono opportunities and trusteeships across our professional network – helping charities to grow
- An opportunity for brands to connect with our broad network of charity clients, in order to foster working partnerships and collaborations
We’re extremely proud that through these initiatives we are supporting the growth of charities and causes that matter.
