Recruitment Agency of the Year – Micro (up to 19 Employees) 2020


RedLaw is an independent executive search consultancy specialising in working with private practice legal professionals in the UK, the US and internationally.

  • With only 15 employees (10 fee earners), RedLaw has made an enormous, long-term impact on the legal sector, with notable successes in the highly competitive London private practice legal sector.
  • In January 2019, RedLaw launched a German desk with the appointment of a German-born recruiter to service the lucrative recruitment market and add value to clients. As German lawyers are very particular, it was essential to have a native, German-speaking consultant heading the division to earn the trust of candidates and clients.
  • RedLaw offers personal Career Pathway Programmes in line with each employee’s aims, as well as agile and part-time working opportunities for all, training, mentoring and the latest recruitment tools.
  • The judges liked that RedLaw aims to enhance the reputation of legal recruiters and position law as a sector not only focused on money, but caring about social enterprise and giving back. As a company, RedLaw fund-raises for organisations and charities linked to the legal industry, and is proud to be a member of the Association of Asian Woman Lawyers Society and work with the Black Solicitors’ Network.

Judges’ comments: “RedLaw is a consistent and innovative business who focus on quality – not just on results. It is a well-rounded recruitment business that puts employees first and understands the importance of CSR.”

Also: The judges felt the shortlist was very competitive, making it difficult to make a final decision.
