About us

Sumner Brown Search is a specialist legal search consultancy. Our focus is on the placement of partners and lawyers at every level; within private practice and into legal roles in-house.

Our consultants are true sector specialists. Our defined practice area focus means that we not only understand, in great detail, the technical requirements of our clients and candidates; but that we have strong relationships within our network, from which to find the best fit - be it client or candidate led.

We service the Corporate, Private Equity, Investment Funds and Asset Management practice areas.  We have extensive knowledge of these core practice areas and our consultants have placed partners, counsel and associates at every level within law firms and into in-house roles within these sectors.

whilst recruitment is at the heart of our business,

we strive to build and maintain relationships in order to add value to both our clients and our candidates over and above the search process.

 
Many of our competitors decide to divide their services into either private practice, or in-house mandates. By choosing to work across both in-house and private practice, and instead focusing on a specialist practice area, we can assist our clients and candidates over the long term by not only understanding the work they undertake; but the impact of the market, regulation & other factors that affect their business environment.

We work with the full spectrum of law firms, including US, UK, Magic Circle, Silver Circle, West End and more specialised or niche firms.

Our in-house offering spans the full corporate and finance markets. Our consultants have placed General Counsel and Legal Counsel into Private Equity Funds, Hedge Funds, Family Offices, Asset Managers, Banks and Companies, amongst others.

 

Whilst the mainstay of our mandates are geographically located in the City of London, we have experience in Europe, the UAE, Australasia and off-shore.

Our approach is underpinned by our core values - integrity, honesty and initiative. We pride ourselves on being an extension of our clients, and on maintaining the utmost confidentiality of every individual involved in any process.

Whilst recruitment is at the heart of our business, we strive to build and maintain relationships in order to add value to both our clients and our candidates over and above the search process. Alongside legal search services, we also offer discreet due diligence reports and views on market trends; as well as advice on compensation, development, employee motivation and attrition. Our aim is always to be our client's trusted advisor.
