Welcome to Beckett Legal

Beckett Legal is a niche recruitment consultancy specialising in placing lawyers at all levels within Private Practice, both in the UK and internationally, in five core areas: Construction, Corporate, Insurance, Litigation and Real Estate.

Our specific market focus enables us to devote time and dedication to all of our assignments. It also gives us the opportunity to further develop our contacts in these particular disciplines which enhances the level of service we provide.

We distinguish ourselves from other consultancies by being a candidate driven company. For candidates, our extensive range of contacts amongst heads of department, partners and Human Resources, together with our dedicated candidate service, Beckett Complete, results in maximum success as we are able to source as many positions as possible, not just those specifically advertised. We listen to our candidates and respect the need for confidentiality with a discreet, personalised and consultative approach.

For clients, our unique and exclusive working relationship with our candidates ensures a prompt and responsive service. Knowing where our candidate is throughout the search process, both emotionally and physically, means we can advise clients accordingly. We are always available to discuss salaries, differing methods of recruitment and current issues in the market to help ensure our clients stay ahead of the competition in securing the best talent.

We recognise that both firms and individuals are our clients and are always treated as such. Our responsibility at both ends is to control the process, manage the emotions and ensure both parties are kept completely informed and updated throughout, with the ultimate goal of achieving a successful match. We are proud the majority of our work comes from referrals which we believe is a result of honesty and transparency in all our dealings.

As professionals consulting professionals, we advise our candidates and clients on the best decision for their career or firm; not the best decision for our fee board. We are able to adhere to this ethical code of conduct because we are an independent, privately owned company with no external pressures to hit billing targets and no corporate banner to hide behind. We genuinely enjoy assisting people who seek our expertise and we thrive in helping people make positive career choices. We know the field truly does lie open to talent and with our help firms can achieve their objectives and individuals can realise their full potential.
