Partners & General Counsel Search

Magnifying glass searching worldwide

Retained search

Our principal focus is on law firm partner search. We work in conjuntion with our law firm clients on some of their most important lateral assignments. We understand all the whys and wherefores that come with team as well as individual moves. 

Our reputation is such that potential candidates understand we will only make approaches to them which are thought through and considered. Our research means that we only approach candidates who we know will be suited to a firm’s culture and the opportunity. We work with our clients on a retained basis, but with our fee structure strongly weighted to success, and not simply to the delivery of a shortlist of candidates. This ensures that our interests are closely aligned, with those of our clients.



In addition to retained search, we also assist firms that prefer to source partner candidates on a contingent basis. Our team has accumulated a wealth of experience in search assignments and we have a vast network of contacts enabling us to identify good quality candidates suited to our clients' needs.


Junior Partner Search

We frequently help senior associates/counsel looking for immediate or partner designate roles who are looking to accelerate their route to partnership. Many of these lawyers have client connections to bring with them. They can also provide a specialist skill set the law firms may not have, at a reasonable cost. We have a dedicated junior partner team specialising in this area.


Case Study

An international law firm, headquartered in London, instructed us to assist with hiring a Partner to build and develop their German practice. What made this assignment challenging was that the client’s ideal candidate would in all likelihood be German trained lawyer practising in Brussels who would be willing to relocate to Germany.
