Clients who trust us

BCL placed me in my current role and was extremely supportive throughout the recruitment process, providing helpful CV and interview advice. I would highly recommend BCL Legal.

Associate, Charles Russell Speechlys LLP
Mark Levine is extremely knowledgeable in relation to in-house roles. He didn’t just ask me what I needed - he analysed the role, the work, my company – it was a full but carefully constructed analysis. When he finds candidates he then explains how they might fit, the areas that might not work and then how they might view the company. This is very important as lawyers will often have different views of companies when compared to law firms. Mark has managed to find candidates when others have failed.
Nigel Dale
General Counsel, Together Money
BCL know the legal market and the retail sector well. They put forward a number of good candidates and provided sound advice to the business.
