Looking for
Deacon Search?

Our reputation is based on matching the right lawyer to the right role.
This is how we do it:

Market Intelligence

As part of the Deacon Legal group, our market intelligence is second to none. We can offer you unrivalled expert advice and our contacts at law firms are at top partner level given our prestigious partner brand. You do not necessarily need to be actively looking for your next role in order to contact us – we are always happy to have a no-strings attached confidential chat.

Personal & Dedicated Service

As we are a boutique, you will receive a personal and dedicated service. Our hands-on consultants understand the need for momentum in securing you the position of your choice, but we are also aware of the often sensitive nature of moving firms, so confidentiality is central to everything we do. Integrity is key for us, and we would never breach your trust by discussing your details with a client or sending your CV out without your clear consent.

Independently Owned

We are an independent, privately owned business and therefore under no obligation to external investors. We seek to form meaningful, long-term relationships, rather than looking to make a ‘quick fee’.

Wide Network of Firms

We have close relationships with key decision makers in a wide network of firms, which serves to maximise your choice and opportunities. Put simply, this means we are more likely to get you interviews than other recruiters.


If you are interested in an In-House opportunity, or a move outside of London (especially Asia, the Middle East or the US), please also get in touch. We have strategic alliances with established recruiters who are specialist in these areas, and we would be happy to put you in contact with them.

Proven Track Record

We have a track record for matching candidates to the right position for them. Similarly, we help our clients to seek out the best possible candidate for a certain position, so we might approach you with specific opportunities.
