Our core values drive everything we do...
Trust is the key quality that defines us. It’s what we stand for and what our customers can expect from us.
Our story and values
RedLaw was set up in 2009 with the aim of doing things differently. What was missing from the industry was a proactive consultancy offering a bespoke service going beyond the existing recruitment models.
Our insight and knowledge ensure lawyers and legal professionals find the best career opportunities, and law firms achieve their strategic goals. The groundbreaking introductions RedLaw makes play a vital role in our clients’ growth, enabling law firms to strategically change their businesses. They build teams and practices, enter new sectors and extend their reputation in their existing fields.
The professionals we place make a longstanding contribution to the success of the firms they go to, and in turn make a lasting impact on the wider legal sector. Our moves are regularly reported in the legal and financial press.
Since RedLaw began, we have built a reputation as a leading independent recruitment consultancy meeting the needs of clients in the UK, US and internationally. By maintaining a boutique approach, our skills, knowledge, expertise and experience combine with the flexibility that enables us to adapt to each client’s individual needs. This is why lawyers and law firms trust RedLaw – we offer a truly personal and results-driven service with no boundaries restricting our capabilities.
