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.

At a time of significant change for chambers, with the attendant risks and opportunities, it was important that we identified and recruited an exceptional new Chief Executive for our chambers. Guy Hewetson provided us with an excellent and high calibre pool of candidates. Guy’s knowledge and assistance with the process was invaluable and has resulted in the appointment of an exceptional new Chief Executive for our chambers.

Chambers have worked extensively with Tony . He has been creative and understands the inner workings of Chambers and the sort of personalities required. I would recommend Tony and Hewetson & Co.

I have sought Guy Hewetson’s advice twice. On one occasion he prevented me from making an error of judgment and on the other he gave me an option I had not considered. He knows the market place very well but more importantly he understands the key to placing professional people correctly. He is conscientious, trustworthy, authentic.

Guy Hewetson is a sound judge of character and abilities. His prepared summaries on each of about 20 candidates (for four roles), were invariably spot on. It made the tasks of my interviewing panels much easier than would otherwise have been the case.

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.
