The law plays an increasing role in business life today; corporate and practicing lawyers at the height of their profession are hard to attract.
The growth of regulation in all major sectors, the increased tendency to litigate and the need to interpret new legislation all require legal advice. The lawyer of today needs to be both technically proficient and commercially astute and legal advice is increasingly sought on every day issues affecting corporate life.
Odgers Berndtson's Legal Practice specialises in assisting corporate, law firm and governmental clients in recruiting lawyers of the highest calibre in a variety of specialist fields.
The team also has expertise in finding company secretaries for listed corporations and senior management hires for the profession in the areas of HR, marketing/business development, learning and development, finance and compliance.
The legal team are qualified or part qualified as lawyers and therefore understand the sector and its challenges in each jurisdiction. Cross border assignments for global organizations (law firms, corporations, banks and public bodies) play to the strength of our international expertise in this area.
