We understand our clients’ corporate cultures and their recruitment needs, and offer honest and impartial advice to our candidates to ensure the best match in each case. All the candidates we put through to clients have already gone through close scrutiny by our team and carry our reputation in their provision of legal services. This is borne out when our clients and candidates consistently return to us for their placement needs. For legal recruiting in Singapore and the Asian region, you can rely on us.


    Our consultants are the reason for our success. All of us are legally qualified and have practised in large law firms and/or companies. Our background in law informs our judgment when assessing candidates and matching them to roles. As former legal professionals ourselves, we are also well placed to tap our own established networks of legal contacts. With our broad experience combined with in-depth market knowledge and our genuine interest to find the right fit, we ensure any change you undertake is the best solution for you.
