Enriching Careers Since 1988.

Over 35 Years of Building Exceptional Legal Teams.

After years in the recruitment industry, Mr Laurence Simons realised that a one-size-fits-all approach to executive legal search did not meet the unique needs and sensitivities of the legal sector.

To meet the requirements of the in-house and private practice markets, he founded a search firm in his name comprised of a team of former lawyers with first-hand knowledge and experience with the requirements of the roles they were placing. In the following decades, we have built on his legacy and passion for service by consistently creating exceptional legal and compliance teams from our London headquarters to North America, Latin America, Europe, Africa and Asia. These teams have added value to our clients and enriched their organisations, evidencing our unmatched international track record of success at Laurence Simons.
