Legal jobs East Anglia

East Anglia is far more than just farming and green fields, and the region now hosts a number of leading international law firms. As Cambridge’s Science & Technology cluster grows at an unprecedented rate, so more national and international law firms and IP specialists choose to put down roots in the City.

The law pool in the region is the largest ever; more law firms are thriving here but the region is by no means over-lawyered as more and more local companies scale internationally with all the many and varied legislative demands global expansion entails.

The East Anglian team at Origin Legal is headed by Andrew Porter. Andrew has unrivalled experience of the legal industry within the East of England and is the consultant behind many of the regions published high profile moves. He can give you access to the right opportunity at the right time and his knowledge is unsurpassed locally. He will always make the time to offer you unbiased advice and guidance on the kind of roles that are available and what salary you can expect to achieve.

The team recruits on behalf of law firms and in-house legal teams across Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire and East London from NQ to Partner level. Being based in the region, we have built an enviable client base, working with firms of all sizes, from the country’s leading regional law firms to small local/boutique practices across East Anglia. We are regularly placing lawyers in Cambridge, Colchester, Norwich, Ipswich, Chelmsford, Brentwood, Basildon, Romford, Southend, Peterborough and Bury St. Edmunds.

For a completely confidential and unbiased conversation give Andrew a call today on 01206 233500 or browse all of our latest opportunities online on our jobs board here.

Testimonials

Professional Liability & Commercial Litigation

“They are very different from the usual agency style recruiters and as such have access to a wide range of different jobs across the City. I briefed them on what I wanted and I found consultants who provided a totally personalized service. They were the only consultants to find me a job in Aviation. I had such an unexpectedly brilliant service from them that I thought you might like to know”

City Law Firm

“I have been impressed with the degree of personal service received by Origin Legal. Their approach seems to be to not bother clients unless they have someone suitable or a valid and relevant question to ask, which is appreciated, particularly in the current climate. The consultants are also honest, professional and friendly.”

Birkett Long LLP

Origin Legal have always taken the time to carefully establish our recruitment requirements and we have a good working relationship with them.
