    I recently received an offer of employment with a new firm and have Greg to thank for his work in this. Following our initial conversation, Greg was very proactive in identifying and notifying me of appropriate opportunities. He was onside throughout the selection and interview process and always followed up with communications and feedback. A great recruiter to work with.

    I have worked closely with Greg to find a position with a new firm. I am a specialist lawyer in a very niche area trying to find a new role in a challenging economic environment. Greg was incredibly supportive and professional in all my dealings with him. He clearly had a very good understanding of my area of expertise and the firms that would be a good fit for me. He had some very good contacts and made an opportunity where there clearly wasn’t one to begin with. The result is a position as a Partner in a top law firm. I could not recommend Greg more highly.

    Greg is hugely personable and approachable and has a great knowledge of the legal market. He provided a great deal of support at a time when there was lots going on. I would highly recommend Greg if you need the support of a legal recruiter.

    I would highly recommend Greg as a recruitment consultant. He worked hard to place me with my current employer; my first step back into private practice after a number of years in local government. He was very supportive during the period of time it took to place me, and proved very reliable and approachable.

    Very happily placed as a result of Greg’s efforts. Greg took a pro-active approach to placing me and worked with commitment and enthusiasm to successfully help “sell” my candidature.

    Newly Qualifieds -Zero to Hero

    Back in 2010/11 when many of today’s second year Trainee Solicitors secured their training contracts, the legal market wasn’t in great shape, reflecting the wider economy. Training contracts fell off a cliff, with most Graduates just being grateful of securing a contract with any firm they could. Fast-forward to 2015. The economy continues to gain
