We know the difference the right job can make to your life, your career and your mindset. Because we have had legal careers ourselves, we are always happy to talk to you about yours, and give you frank, practical guidance about where you want to be. We’ll help you find what you need, be it permanent, part time or flexible work.

We draw from our backgrounds of 20 years’ combined experience working as qualified senior lawyers. Between us we have worked for small, medium and large firms, in-house legal departments, and as a barrister. We understand legal jobs and legal careers – we do law and only law.
