We are delighted and very proud to announce that this November, LAW Absolute celebrates 20 years of placing legal staff into private practice, in-house and the public sector.
We have placed with more than 1,000 organisations. Our Lawyers, Paralegals and Business Support professionals work in Magic and Silver Circle and global firms as well as legal 500 and small firms. They operate in FTSE companies, start-ups, government bodies, regulators, universities, charities and most UK local authorities.
LAW Absolute have made over 15,000 placements. Our lawyers assist in Public Inquiries investigating prisoner abuse, contaminated blood deaths, Bloody Sunday, historical institutional abuse and much more. Our lawyers have helped deliver the 2012 Olympics, represented at every court and tribunal, completed billion pound deals, assisted with legislative reform post Brexit, designed and delivered major urban and rural redevelopment projects nationwide, protected vulnerable children, prosecuted tax fraudsters, completed hundreds of thousands of conveyances, reviewed hundreds of thousands of documents and won clients billions in compensation. Whilst the majority of our placements have been transactional lawyers, our placements include thousands of paralegals taking their first career steps into the industry.
LAW Absolute’s impact on the legal industry has been huge. We host CPD events, GC roundtables and Public Law Forums. We write articles for trade press, are quoted in legal journals and opine on changes to the profession in forums, blogs and at Law Society events. We present in front of hundreds of lawyers from government departments and charities and provide market and salary information to Partners, GCs and job seekers every day. We move teams of lawyers, we help those relocating from abroad, offer advice to departmental lawyers facing redundancy and help those looking to re-specialise within the sector. Our team has helped lawyers navigate recessions, AI, legal reforms, SQE, remote working, Covid and other challenges – always in partnership and with an eye to developing long term successful careers.
Our clients include many global and US firms, our lawyers have assisted in some of the world’s largest corporate deals, civil claims and international human rights matters. We have placed beyond these shores, with our lawyers operating across Europe, the Middle East and Australia. They have provided advice to the people of British Overseas territories, those displaced through war and famine and those who need protection from decisions made by our government and those abroad. LAW Absolute has a strong foothold in the Document Review market and has provided high volume staff to support high profile class actions.
We are immensely proud of the long-term client and candidate relationships that we have worked hard to grow. Thousands of lawyers have progressed their careers through our introductions, help and support, coming back to us when they need to move, referring colleagues and using our services when they need to grow their own teams.
We look forward to the next twenty years of helping grow the legal sector in the UK and beyond!
