Our Services


At Legal Labs, we recognise the challenges which organisations face in recruiting the right person, and we invest time to understand your business, corporate culture and recruitment needs. This, together with our vast combined contacts, personal network on the ground and well documented proprietary database in core markets have contributed to our ability to produce reliable results.

We are able to support

  • permanent placements
  • short term contract placements (see LegalFlex)
  • part-time/flexi arrangements

Our fees are payable on a contingency basis and computed on a straightforward, fixed percentage of the placed candidate’s 1st year compensation package (or part thereof for short term contracts).
