We source legal talent across the Financial Services spectrum

As financial services firms face the increasingly complex and challenging business environments, organisations have been focussing on strengthening their legal departments and General Counsel to develop robust and effective advisory services.

The continuous evolution of technology also plays a role and presents many complexities for the General Counsel not only from a regulation and risk management perspective but also around managing intellectual property.  The need for specialists who possess the necessary attributes required to successfully lead a financial corporation’s legal division are in high demand.


We understand that the General Counsel’s advisory status to CEOs, the board of directors and executive committees within financial institutions requires equal amounts of trustworthiness and industry knowledge. To this end, we seek these key attributes alongside the more operational skill-set required in such roles.


We work closely with our clients to understand the culture and future strategy of the business so that we can partner with you as effectively as possible. As a team we work together collaboratively both locally and globally across offices to provide the best solution for your talent requirements, whether that’s executive search, independent consulting, executive interim or talent advisory.


If you’d like to find out more about how we can help you with your talent requirements please contact one of our Global Offices or contact us here.
