Case study

Over the last 18 months, the team at Realm have worked closely with Maguire Family Law.

From the outset, we worked hard to get to know the team at Maguire. We visited their offices in Wilmslow to better understand their company culture, way of working and their plans for growth. We regularly meet with the directors at Maguire and have got to know the entire team through various networking events.

We have recruited at all levels, from legal secretary to associate solicitor for Maguire, helping the firm grow headcount by more than 50%. During this period, they have also been able to expand from their Wilmslow headquarters into a second office in Knutsford.

“Realm were introduced to Maguire Family Law by recommendation and we have not been disappointed. Duane came to our office to meet the team and get a grasp of our ethos.

We have only ever received appropriate CVs, excellent communication and client care. Thank you, team Realm.”
