Legal People - 25 years of matching people with job

Mediation of lawyers for all kinds of legal services

Legal People is the first specialised executive search consultancy for legal professionals in the Netherlands. We have consciously chosen to focus on one specific functional area. This focus allows us to leverage our knowledge of the market optimally.

Current jobs

Enduring connecting in an upright and discreet way

Executive search

From the beginning we have focused on recruitment and selection of junior civil-law notaries, lawyers and company lawyers. Initially, we mainly recruited for junior and mid-level positions – lawyers who were to strengthen an existing team. Next, we moved towards more strategic and senior positions, such as General Counsel and partner, and we expanded our range of services to recruiting teams of lawyers. At present, we even recruit and select entire law firms.

Interim Solutions

From the start, we found there was a need for interim solutions. To meet such short-term issues, e.g. replacement in the context of pregnancy leave, we started Legal People Interim Solutions. Meanwhile, we now also recruit candidates for temporary specialist positions, e.g. in the area of privacy or M&A.

Web Working Women

The focus of our interim projects initially was on positions based at our client’s premises. However, such positions were difficult to manage for lawyers with young families, who were keen to work (partially) from home. In order to offer them flexibility, we founded Legal People Web Working Women, and now we also fill interim vacancies whereby interim lawyers can work from home full time or part time.

We can introduce specialised interim Laywers within 48 hours

Tax and Compliance

Innovation, following market developments and matching our service provision to the wishes of our clients, continues to hold our attention. For this reason, we have expanded our services last year with two additional focus areas: tax and compliance. In October 2015 we launched two new labels: Tax People and Compliance People.

Our different labels

Charities and social enterprises

In addition to our work for commercial businesses and government organisations, we saw that charities and social organisations were also often looking for legal support. For a number of years, we have worked for charities on a pro bono basis, and also for social enterprises, for which we charge a reduced rate.

Our team

We have been working with a fixed team of honest, dedicated advisers and executive search assistants. We all share a passion for our work. We are very proud of the way in which we succeed in matching lawyers, (junior) civil-law notaries, company lawyers and tax lawyers with clients, accurately and confidentially. The way in which we do that has developed over the years into the best practice in our market. Within an agreed time we supply a selected number of candidates who match the agreed profile. The market considers our procedures as professional and successful. Our working method yields a success rate of over 95%, and for company lawyer positions even 100%.
