Barclay Simpson’s legal division specialises in providing in-house legal recruitment solutions to a wide range of organisations, be they global institutions with large legal functions, or small privately owned businesses looking to recruit their first in-house legal advisor. We work with lawyers at all levels from newly qualified to general counsels and we have built an excellent reputation within in-house markets. We choose not to recruit for law firms and we are free to move lawyers from any of the top City firms, so allowing us to offer those looking to move in-house a truly bespoke service. Our consultants are sector specific, with some covering niche areas of financial services, whilst others recruit for some of the leading brands in commerce and industry. 

Our strength lies in our consultants’ depth of experience and understanding of the niche markets in which we operate. Our network of legal professionals in these markets is extensive and we fully appreciate that effective recruitment is key to building a strong department. We provide a tailored, discreet and professional service throughout the in-house market.
