What a journey so far

When Birchrose Associates was established in 2019, we were clear on our vision of being a niche legal recruitment specialist, dedicated to private practice. We wanted to offer a consultative service to our clients and candidates, be honest and transparent in our approach, and most importantly, be a trusted recruitment partner.

Despite the significant challenges faced by the recruitment industry throughout the pandemic, we have stayed true to our strategy and values and consequently established ourselves as a niche but significant player in the market.

years’ combined experience

To date, all our consultants have come from either law or legal recruitment backgrounds. We have over 40 years’ combined experience in legal recruitment and significant market knowledge between us. We are passionate about working with candidates throughout their legal careers and advising our clients to ensure they get the very best from the recruitment process.
