Meet your team
Realm provides an incomparably specialist legal recruitment service, as each of our consultants recruits for a specific area of law. This means we can develop closer relationships with more lawyers in that field than any of our competitors. What’s more, over half of our team has a legal background, so they can really get under the skin of what makes your firm great to work for.
