A refreshing approach to legal recruitment

We are Realm - the most specialised legal attraction, retention and recruitment consultancy, helping to develop legal careers and sustainably grow law firms by matching the right lawyers with the right firms.


We're trusted by wonderful companies


Legal recruitment done the right way

Realm was set up in 2015 to offer something different to an increasingly disillusioned and frustrated legal market – a truly specialist recruitment service, led by nice people with a legal background and genuine care for the lawyers and law firms they work with.

We focus on fostering positive, long-term relationships and measure our success on how many careers we’re helping to flourish and firms we’re helping to drive forward – not on how much commission we’ve made. Collaborative, dynamic, human – get ready for a completely different recruitment experience.

We’re specialists, just like you

Lawyers only specialise in one field, and we think recruitment should be the same. Unlike other agencies, each of our consultants specialises in a particular practice area, which means they have unrivalled depth of knowledge of your market and can therefore represent you better than anyone else.

Law firms love our specialist approach, too. This is why we have long-term relationships with, and actively recruit for, hundreds of boutique, regional and national law firms. Read on to find out how else we are working to disrupt the recruitment industry.


We work hard to foster meaningful relationships with people

Unhappy with the scattergun approach of some recruiters, we set up Realm in 2015 to offer something different. Over the last 5 years, we’ve grown from a team of two to a team of 17, comprising a core group of dedicated recruitment consultants, an in-house marketing team, a devoted office manager and an enthusiastic administration executive.

On a day-to-day basis, we work hard to deliver a personal and tailored recruitment service. We’re truly passionate about the people we work with and are committed to developing long-term mutually beneficial relationships with both lawyers and law firms.
