How can we help?

Our in-house team is a leader in the in-house legal search and recruitment market.  Most of our consultants have qualified and practised as lawyers, making our team one of the most experienced in the Italian market.

We work with clients in Italy and internationally across commerce and industry and financial services in order to build their legal teams at all levels of seniority.  Whether a multinational is looking for a Group or Regional general counsel, a start-up is seeking their first in-house lawyer or an established in-house legal function wants to supplement their existing legal team with non-qualified legal professionals, we are able to connect them to some of the strongest talent within the industry.

How we work

We pride ourselves on partnering with our clients, understanding their requirements and finding the best talent for their business. We have a track record of success in tailoring our approach to the market to ensure the process and the outcome is exactly what our client is looking for.

We have a number of approaches we can take, independently or in tandem, depending on the instruction.

  • We can utilise our existing international network which has been developed over the lifetime of our business coupled with the longevity of networks with each consultant in our business.
  • We can supplement our network with online and offline advertising which can prove to be particularly helpful in identifying individuals in challenging locations or with niche skill-sets.
  • For more strategic or sensitive hires, both in Italy or internationally, where our client requires assurances that the entire pool of relevant talent has been mapped and targeted, we can provide a more structured headhunting project.

International network

We have a truly international footprint, with in-house specialist recruiters across all of our 13 offices. This, coupled with our track record of running searches for our clients in jurisdictions where we do not yet have a physical presence, ensures we can offer a one stop shop for any organisation looking to grow their legal function in the UK and/or internationally.
