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.

On meeting Stanford, who had been recommended to me, they had individual specialists who clearly work together across both in-house and private practice. I found them to be genuinely focused on giving long term advice and I can't recommend them highly enough.

They're well respected, we wouldn't use someone who wasn't. It's important to use someone who our clients see as credible.

Head of BankingLeading UK Firm

I found Stanford very knowledgeable about the market and particularly interested that I made the right choice of firm as they recognised that my move wasn’t just another job but a hugely important step in my career.

PartnerUK Firm

Stanford are my go-to people for recruiting for capital markets and M&A transactional lawyers when you need a name that is known by the banks; Stanford has extensive knowledge of both private practice practitioners in this area as well as the in-house lawyers at the leading investment banks so is able to provide high quality advice and candidates to both client types.
