I have known Tony for over 20 year’s following our time at the Bar. I specifically hired him to work on a number of bespoke projects to assist with the launch of the International Arbitration Centre. Due to the nature of our work, confidentiality is always key to the work we do and because of this, the briefs we sent him were very strategic and specific. Tony went to market using his knowledge and large network. He was able to quickly present us with some outstanding candidates. Personality and fit were absolutely essential as we were a new business starting out. Being authentic is very important to me and his attention to detail coupled with his speed in response and also his advice, gave me the trust and confidence to build my outstanding team.
When placing me from the Bar into private practice, Guy and Tony stood out from other recruiters owing to the personal level of service they provided. They both took the time to get to know me and what I was looking for, and then kept me updated every step of the way. Their diverse network of contacts between them meant they were able to secure me an interview with my target firm very quickly and provide insightful advice in preparation for interview. I would highly recommend them, particularly to self-employed barristers looking to move either laterally or into private practice. Their specialist knowledge about the Bar and their vast experience between them makes them uniquely placed to secure candidates the very best roles available.
Guy is a delight to deal with and makes the whole recruitment process seem effortless. He is authentic and honest in keeping all sides up to date on where matters stand and plays a pivotal role in negotiations. He found a superb candidate recently for me who is exactly the calibre and personality I needed for my team.
Tony is a pleasure to deal with and I would not hesitate in recommending him. He provides excellent professional support and has an in depth understanding of the market. Tony is sincere and always goes the extra mile.
Tony knows the market and understands what makes a lawyer tick. He is personable, authentic and always adds value.
I have worked with Tony for many years. He is a consummate professional, who at the same time is easy to get on with and very personable.
I have worked with Guy on numerous recruitment exercises recently and would very highly recommend him and his team. There really is an art to good recruitment and Guy has a rare touch. He’s never simply “chasing the fee” but invests a huge amount of time in really getting to know his clients and candidates. He has an extensive network to draw on and is a truly lovely person to work with, which helps enormously and is so refreshing from the employer’s point of view. From the wonderful new members of our team who have joined through him, I know that candidates feel the same way. An exceptional person all round!
When considering a chambers move with my team, I met with all the major players in the industry. Guy and Tony were our clear preferred choice.
They were authentic in their approach, challenged us when they felt it necessary and ultimately delivered a seamless service. Most importantly they showed complete discretion, which was for us the most important criteria.
Their reputation for being leaders in their field is well deserved and I would not hesitate to recommend them to others.
