Legal recruitment in Financial Services

Many of our Financial Services clients lack the in-house specialist knowledge to recruit the best legal talent and often struggle to find candidates that are the right cultural fit. With our pools of high-calibre talent ready to move in-house; in-depth market knowledge; and collaboration with our other specialist teams, we have become a one-stop shop for many FS clients. We stay up to date with trends through regular market interaction and are seen by our clients as trusted advisors.
