Sarah Fulbrook

Deacon Search


Sarah graduated from London University (UCL) in 1997 with a 2:1 LLB (Hons) degree in Law with French Law, having spent the third year of her degree at the University of Aix-Marseille in Provence. She then completed her Legal Practice Course at the College of Law in York. Sarah trained with Eversheds where she qualified as a Corporate lawyer and remained until re-training as a matrimonial lawyer, working for Goodman Derrick and Manches (now Penningtons Manches).

Sarah moved into legal recruitment with Deacon Search in October 2007.  After enjoying a two-year career break to look after her young children, she returned to the office in early 2016.

Sarah has always specialised in recruiting at partner and partner designate level, primarily in the London market. Since joining the business she has successfully completed a wide variety of partner assignments for City, US, and West End firms.

Interests: Other than spending time with her family, Sarah enjoys mountain walking, skiing, pub lunches, good books, attempts to improve her much neglected French and catching up with friends preferably over good food and wine (and the occasional G&T…).

Surprising fact about Sarah: In her youth Sarah appeared on the televised student game show "Blockbusters" and her Bob Holness signed dictionary remains one of her most prized possessions. She also recently successfully completed a longstanding personal ambition for charity - to climb the national three peaks in under 24 hours. She is still aching.
