Roles we recruit for: General Counsel

General Counsel recruitment

We have extensive experience in the General Counsel market, having worked on senior searches 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 recruitment and search assignments swiftly and effectively, through an extensive market mapping exercise and also accessing our network of General Counsel clients and senior lawyers we have worked with.

We are often able to deliver shortlists in a matter of week. Our General Counsel team collaborates across all of our global offices to ensure that our shortlists represent the best talent available in the market.

We regularly conduct research on behalf of our 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. 

Sarah Ingwersen, as well as being hugely personable is incredibly professional and responsive. She 'gets it' - when acting for you both as a candidate and a client and does not waste your time with inappropriate roles or irrelevant advice. Sarah offers great insight, is tenacious and works in partnership with you - never shy about giving constructive advice too.

I have worked with Sarah for 13 years now, she’s helped me recruit some great team members, as well as finding me some fantastic opportunities, including my first in-house role at and being instrumental in my recent role at Superdry. We’ve brainstormed ideas for events and supported each other in challenging times. Sarah is a refreshing and focused individual and I would thoroughly recommend her.
