Our methods of working


We have 3 main methods to find suitable and high-profile candidates when doing a search:

  1. Database: We have a constantly growing database of candidates who are registered and we do take the time to make contact with them in order to be updated on their situation. We search our database for suitable candidates and make contact with them to set up a meeting or video conference when needs be.
  2. Headhunting: We headhunt suitable candidates from companies, banks, financial institutions and law firms to see their interest in considering a new position. We also headhunt from social media websites. We do not headhunt from our exclusive clients.
  3. Advert: We place adverts on our website as well as other legal websites, depending on our clients’ preferences. 


Once an agreement is signed with a client, we start the search(es) straight away. We arrange to meet most of our candidates prior to shortlisting them. If this is not possible, we plan for an interview via Visio conference. Further to the interview(s), we will prepare a shortlist for the client where we provide details of the interview and information about each candidate, together with the resumes to send to the client.

We usually provide a first shortlist within 3 weeks from the start of the search, although we usually manage to send the shortlist within 2 weeks, depending on the delay of responses of candidates. When we shortlist candidates, we look at the experience of course but also the personality and the qualities of each candidate to make sure that he/she will be a match for the client. We remain transparent with clients and candidates.

We remain available and we continue to assist our clients and candidates throughout each recruitment process; arrange interviews, collect references and provide any additional information which may be required, until the signature of the contract.


We have an open-minded and professional approach with both our clients and candidates and remain available when they need us. We provide the best possible advise and make sure that all queries are dealt with. We work both in English and French.
