Industry Insight: 

For all of our jobseekers and law firms we like to go above and beyond and whether you’re a Private Client Paralegal, Private Client panel Solicitor or a specialist Private Client law firm we aim to give you the best service possible. We see ourselves as more than simply legal recruiters; we’re legal recruitment consultants. 

We aim to pair the right talent with the right law firm but further than that we work hard to equip those we service with the right knowledge to help them achieve their commercial goals. That’s why, each year, we carry out in-depth research to better understand the state of the market so that we can effectively advise the lawyers and law firms we work with. 

Our 2021 market research revealed that almost half of lawyers don’t believe they are paid fairly. However, because firms are willing to pay to secure the right people, it’s never been a more important time to understand current market rates and whether you’re being paid enough.  

We have thoroughly researched the market and compiled a breakdown of salary by PQE level to help you understand exactly where you sit compared to other Private Client lawyers.

What our Private Client Law candidates and clients say

 

“Having been in my last role over a decade, I was very cautious about looking for a new role. Having met Kelly at a few networking events, I asked to meet her for a coffee and she was able to answer all my questions.

She was very discreet and communicated with me every step of the way. She was really open and honest, so I always felt she had my best interests at heart. I would absolutely recommend Kelly to anyone considering their next move.”

Elaine Roche, Tax & Estate Planning Partner at Kuits Solicitors

 

“I have recently worked with Kelly on a difficult role to fill due to a lack of candidates on the market for Private Client. Kelly was really helpful throughout - she listened to what I was looking for and actively applied that to the candidates she was representing so the candidate on paper was perfect and in person even more so!

Kelly is responsive and works hard to understand the role and our 'ideal'. It is a refreshing and reassuring approach. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her services!”

Sarah Walker, Head of Wills, Trusts, Tax and Probate at Weightmans

 

"We turned to Kelly when we were looking for a Head of our Private Client department. She took the time to understand our business and culture and quickly provided several very credible candidates for a role for which we had been finding it difficult to find the right person.

We found a fantastic solicitor with great skills and who fits our ethos very well. Kelly supported us throughout and I highly recommend her."

Chris Gawne, Director at Price Slater Gawne Solicitors
