Duane graduated with a 2:1 in Law (LLB) from the University of Manchester, whilst also receiving the R.G Lawson and Damien Bourke prizes. Having gained experience within marketing and recruitment for a national non-for-profit organisation, Duane moved into legal recruitment several years back and has specialised in recruiting lawyers ever since.

Duane is well-connected in the regional markets. He primarily recruits for senior solicitor-level positions for private practices, ranging from niche firms to regional heavyweights, as well as for in-house roles and other legal jobs in the North West.

In particular, Duane specialises in Private Client (including Trusts & Tax and Court of Protection) and Professional Indemnity/Commercial Insurance roles. He also recruits into a range of other practice areas and for a variety of legal jobs in Manchester, Birmingham and beyond.

He is honest, offers sound advice, and his consultative approach has been summed up in the description of him being ‘informative but not pushy’.

Outside of work, Duane is an active member of The Junior Chamber of Commerce and an Ambassador for Forever Manchester. He enjoys cooking, watching most sports, and walks with his springer spaniel, particularly those that end at a decent country pub. Duane is also an Aston Villa fan.
