Partners - Private Practice
Partners- private practice
We have a long track record in working with senior lawyers facilitating lateral moves at Partner level and helping lawyers make transformational career moves. Sometimes to maximise your potential, you need an alternative platform but navigating that direction and your choices can be complex. We help make it simple.
We adopt a holistic approach, understanding that at this level it's not just a career move but a life move.
We get personal and tailor our approach to the individual - the experience, motivations and personalities of Partners considering their options can vary widely.
We become your trusted adviser. To do this, we need you to be open in order to truly get to know you and what you want to achieve from working with us.
Lateral partner recruitment processes can be intense, lengthy and detailed. However experienced and talented a partner may be, any firm needs to assess and justify that hire carefully and methodically. We will make sure you know exactly what to expect.
If we believe your career is best served by you remaining with your current firm, as can sometimes be the case, we'll tell you.
We pride ourselves on being global citizens - we have lived and worked in multiple overseas jurisdictions so we get what's involved in a move overseas. It's a life change. Helping professionals progress their careers overseas is one of our core specialisms. Wherever in the world you want to go, we'll take you there.
Contact the Cross-Border team
All of our cross-border consultants have themselves experienced international relocations. We have detailed knowledge not only of the various legal markets but also what it's like to make the move, with or without a family.
Our team has lived in, and understands the culture of, all the regions we help relocate lawyers to.
Unlike many of our competitors, you will work closely with one consultant who will support, advise and represent you through the whole process. Any other approach creates a disconnect.
With very little time for contemplation, lawyers often find themselves on a track for years before they realise that maybe it was right for them at one point in their career, but maybe it isn't any more. As we grow and develop, we need and want different things. Advising and helping is the best part of our day and we regularly engage in confidential exploratory discussions with senior lawyers who want this level of service and support.
Book in a consultation call and we will arm you with the questions you need to ask yourself. If you want to take that a step further, you can book in with our Executive Coach, a specialist in the legal industry. Once we know more about you and your goals, we can also advise what options may be open to you.
We know our stuff. All of our highly experienced team have legal backgrounds, and have worked in all the international markets in which we operate.
We provide both in-depth analysis and personal experience of the jurisdiction and location you’re considering.
We rely on repeat business and referrals - it is mutually beneficial for us to be nothing but honest about the prospect of you achieving your goals.
A key part of our role is helping you understand what you need in order to achieve your ultimate vision and avoid all the pitfalls which could inhibit your development.
Without doubt, the best consultant I ever used and once I found them, the only one I ever used, for over 10 years. Their level of knowledge, integrity and professionalism is reflective of what you would look for in the legal sector; and their level of passion and commitment to a successful outcome is something rarely seen in any sector.

But more so, they go to great lengths to ensure they know and understand our business in-depth, which in turn allows them to passionately advocate for our business. This unique formula is the secret to their success.
Managing Partner, Top 20 Global Law Firm
They convinced me to make my biggest career move and I have had no regrets since. They combine unsurpassed industry knowledge, unquestionable integrity and a pragmatic approach. Put simply, you can trust them to help you make the right decision - which is what you really need when faced with a life-changing decision like moving overseas.
Partner and now Global Management Board member, Top 20 Global Firm
You were fantastic. I've come across so many average recruiters in the past, so it's been great finding one who was ethical and genuinely interested in helping me find the right role. Constantly in touch throughout the process – they gave me lots of detailed advice not just about the opportunity but also the broader aspects of relocation.I'd recommend them without hesitation.
