Testimonials

Flint Bishop

“Flint Bishop have used Origin Legal for a number of years and in particular retained them to deal with several high profile Partner appointments. We have always been delighted with the service that we receive and in particular the consultant’s practical approach coupled with sound commercial advice. I would have no hesitation in recommending Origin Legal to others.”

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.”
