A London firm with a top tier crime practice wanted to recruit a partner to join their well-established practice to focus on developing the private revenue aspect. They had been searching for this person for two years without success; finding a good up and coming criminal lawyer with a private practice is like finding a needle in the haystack but they had previously not utilised executive search. The firm went on to instruct Ortus Group to research and engage with the market and following an intensive 6 week headhunting project, we found three crime lawyers (all with a focus on private work) for the firm to meet with. We worked with the firm and all partners throughout the interview process before an offer was made at the end of 2020 and that person went on to join the firm in early 2021. All are delighted with the final outcome.
