Services to clients

Legal recruitment is rarely a sprint and can be a marathon. We take time to understand your requirements and work with you every step of the way to ensure that the market is comprehensively explored for the best suited candidates. We are not satisfied unless you are.  We pride ourselves on presenting high quality shortlists as we know your time is precious. We understand that the representations we make as your recruitment partner reflect strongly on you and we take these responsibilities very seriously.


Our extensive experience in undertaking many client assignments over the years has made us finely tuned to recruitment best practice and we are continuously developing our market knowledge and networks to maintain an insightful and valued service. We listen to and respond to the needs of our clients by offering flexible recruitment solutions based on database search, display advertising and targeted search or by combining these strategies.


Through our dedicated and professional management of the recruitment process, attention to detail and by utilising our market knowledge and connections, we aim to provide you with confidence in your recruitment decision making.


Services to candidates

We know that working in the legal profession can be highly demanding. Often little time or energy remains to consider career advice or explore alternate options. We aim to provide candidates with personable, honest and relevant advice tailored to individual requirements. The in-house legal market in New Zealand is compact and dynamic with more candidates seeking to transition in-house than positions readily available. Our specialist expertise and connections in this area can assist you to make the most of the opportunities that do present.


You may be considering a move in-house for the first time and seeking realistic feedback on whether your skills and experience are likely to suit, or you may be a seasoned in-house lawyer considering your next move or keen to hear practical, honest career advice. Whatever the reason, we welcome your contact and enjoy sharing our expertise. We take time to listen and to talk to you at a time that is convenient to you. Professional integrity and confidentiality are the cornerstones of our relationships with candidates and we are continually developing our market knowledge and connections to ensure that the advice we provide is relevant and insightful.


We invite you to make contact and look forward to getting to know you.
