Track Record

At SSQ we have rapidly become one of the market leaders in private practice partner and team recruitment.  A significant number of the highest profile recent senior moves in the UK and continental Europe have been arranged by SSQ.

We pride ourselves on the calibre and variety of the partner, team and associate placements we make in the UK and continental Europe, as well as our track record of in-house placements.

The directors of SSQ have over 50 years’ combined experience transacting partner and team moves.

Gareth Quarry is regarded by many senior lawyers in the UK market as the number one legal search and recruitment consultant for senior private practice moves, with experience dating back to the mid 1980s. He has been responsible for a very significant number of truly headline making partner and team moves involving both US and UK firms and he has assisted many US law firms to open offices in London.

Nick Shilton was the first international legal recruitment consultant to open an office in Germany in 1999. Since then based primarily in Frankfurt he has focused on recruiting partners and teams across Germany. This has included helping a number of international law firms to launch offices in Germany. He is also involved in recruiting at partner and team level in Italy, France and Spain.

The directors are supported for partner and team recruitment matters by senior consultants in the UK, Germany, Italy, Spain, France and Hong Kong.  All have experience of writing business plans with senior lawyers and helping to broker the most appropriate deals for all involved.
