Duane Cormell


Meet Duane Cormell

I am the co-founder of Realm Recruit. I believe that when it comes to work-life balance, life is the more important of the two, and that’s something I try to put at the centre of everything Realm does.

Since moving to recruitment after obtaining a degree in Law, I have amassed more than 10 years’ legal recruitment experience, and I use the knowledge I have gained in that time to help law firms, lawyers, and aspiring lawyers alike.

I co-founded Realm in 2015 with the aim of developing careers and sustainably growing law firms through a refreshing, values-driven approach to legal recruitment.

Recently I’ve been researching the impact that COVID-19 has had on the legal profession, in terms of employee engagement, attraction and retention, and employees’ employability. In July 2020, this research was featured in an article by The Law Society Gazette about ‘The New World of Work’.
