Unlocking the best talent demands the very highest levels of knowledge and understanding.

Stanford has curated a reputation as an expert legal search firm, working with prestigious clients as they hire the most coveted talent.

We take a long-term view on relationships, and have partnered with many clients for a decade or more; and similarly, have strong personal relationships with the candidates in our networks.

Our consultants specialise by practice area.

By remaining constant in one space, our market insight and career guidance advice is unparalleled.

By advising on both law firm and in-house options within one space, we’re able to truly advise candidates on the best course for their careers.

Through pro-actively networking and developing our candidate pools, we approach every search from a rolling start.

Practice Area Focused Model

Our practice area focused model allows us to dedicate our time to building long-term relationships with the individuals in our respective networks. This allows us not only to appreciate the world that our candidates and clients practice in, but – from a practical perspective – we are also able to work with our candidates through the lifespan of their careers by being able to advise them on private practice or in-house options, as they reach natural inflexion points in their careers.
