Jameson Legal’s London & UK Practice

London Skyline

Jameson Legal is one of the leading legal recruitment and search companies in London, one of the world’s premier legal centres. With an established brand founded on integrity and professionalism, we have built long-term relationships with lawyers, law firms and companies across London.

We have three divisions operating from our City office:

  • Private practice – we represent solicitors at all levels from NQ through junior to senior associate and Partners, as well as paralegals. Our team works closely with the best law firms in London, from the Magic Circle and US law firms to the leading national and boutique practices as well as West End firms. We have built up valued relationships over many years with these firms and act on an exclusive or preferred basis for many associate and partner roles.
  • In-house – our team advises an established and growing client base of in-house legal teams across all sectors and lawyers at all levels of experience and are regularly instructed on in-house legal roles on an exclusive basis. We have particular expertise in placing lawyers into the Financial Services and Commerce & Industry sectors including asset managers, banks, hedge funds, and energy/construction and shipping companies. We also increasingly work with technology companies including fintech companies.
  • Contract/Interim – Jameson Contract Solutions (JCS) is our separate, established contract recruitment offering. We advise lawyers at all levels on fixed-term contract or rolling contract roles within both law firms and in-house teams. Our dedicated contract recruitment team and relationships within both law firm and in-house recruitment teams means that our clients regularly refer to us to advise on interim/contract hiring needs.

Our experienced, highly-trained teams include former City and international lawyers as well as experienced recruiters who work hard and act proactively for both our lawyers and their careers, and our client firms/companies, to reach a successful outcome.

Legal consultants in our three teams are also able to assist firms, companies and lawyers with requirements in other areas of the UK and to advise initially on opportunities with our clients in jurisdictions outside of the UK.
