About Paul

Having worked within legal recruitment for over 17 years as both a contingency recruiter and head hunter, my experience and in-depth knowledge of the market nationally has allowed me to identify and capitalise on a niche in the market place.

I've recruited for law firms that are looking to make strategic appointments at Director, Partner or Board level or for aspiring Assistants and Associates and helped businesses increase turnover and profitability by recruiting some of the most technically gifted, influential and talented lawyers in Europe.

This proven track record of completing major assignments in niche markets across the UK and Ireland coupled with developing and managing legal recruitment offices and teams in Dublin, Edinburgh, Leeds, Birmingham and Manchester gives me a thorough understanding of what it takes to be successful in retained search and selection campaigns on a nationwide basis.
