At Taylor Root, we believe that what you decide to do upon graduation is the single most important career decision you will ever make – and we’ve created our Private practice newly qualified guide with you in mind. This brochure is designed to support and guide you in this decision-making process.

We are a market-leading recruiter of newly qualified lawyers, helping law firms and businesses in every sector of every size to find bright new talent. We have a proven track record of helping newly qualified lawyers (NQs) find roles upon qualification and providing consultative advice during the recruitment process. Our goal is to build a long-term relationship and provide guidance and market insight throughout your career.

Whatever your preference, there will be relevant opportunities available to you in London which we will be happy to discuss and help you make the right career move.
