Private Practice

Jameson Legal has successfully placed lawyers into law firms within a multitude of legal jurisdictions – this remains the key part of what we do. We are known for the quality of our work, professionalism and integrity with the lawyers we work with and we act with the same qualities in mind for the law firms we work with. 

We work closely with a wide range of the leading commercial law firms across the globe, from the Magic Circle in London to high-end West End boutiques, together with the leading practices in Asia, the Middle East, the Caribbean, the Channel Islands, mainland Europe and Latin America. We have experts focusing solely on jurisdictions in those regions.  We advise those looking for a move within their own country and those also considering a move overseas.

We advise and successfully place qualified lawyers at all levels, from newly-qualified solicitors to equity partners.

Our aim is for law firms to be completely satisfied with the quality of our work, ultimately with the end result of finding the right people who fulfil or exceed their current needs or who will contribute to the firm’s strategy.

We should be a key point of contact for you – our consultants each specialise in a limited number of practice areas so if you are seeking to hire in a certain practice area, we can provide the expertise you need and we will know the people who can add value to the firm.

We also offer added value. We are experts in the jurisdictions we work in. We are based in or regularly visit our core locations and can provide up-to-date information on the overall legal market, trends and salaries.
