Heriot Brown

We understand the challenges that young, ambitious businesses face because we are one. And we know what established teams are looking for because we’ve been there. Whatever stage your in-house legal function is at, we quickly integrate and build relationships with your team to understand your current needs and find solutions.

Although we tailor every project to the needs of every client, we offer several specialist services that address the various recruitment challenges that today’s organisations face.

Permanent Recruitment 

From helping businesses recruit their very first in-house lawyer through to growing their team domestically or internationally, we have a wealth of experience advising on the legal skills needed.  For a permanent hire, we understand there is no “one size fits all”. We are often instructed on a retained and exclusive basis but have the capacity to work alongside internal talent teams to support with candidate attraction. 

Flexible Resourcing 

The legal landscape has changed significantly over the last decade with contract work becoming a more popular choice for legal professionals and for more sophisticated in-house legal teams who look for a flexible capacity management solution. We are able to supply candidates on both a fixed-term contract and a temporary basis (offering full payroll and umbrella facilities), which comply with IR35 regulations. 

Legal Support 

Hiring paralegals to undertake administrative, routine or process-driven work can have a huge impact on the efficiency of an in-house legal team. This frees time for qualified lawyers to focus on complex work and also to dedicate time to developing client relationships. Our Heriot Brown Legal Support team recruit paralegals on both an interim and a permanent basis for clients across all sectors.
