Legal, Risk & Compliance

Legal, Risk and Compliance leadership roles have become increasingly complex and demanding in the global, regulated world that businesses must navigate. Acting as a sounding board for the senior leadership team, they have always played a critical role to ensure that risks are managed, and legal frameworks adapt to market demands. Today, the ongoing socio-political issues such as Brexit, Covid-19 and climate change mean that these leaders have an even more crucial role as strategic partner to the Board, helping drive decisions at the top of the organisation to ensure they stay competitive and set up for growth.

We have a strong track record of working with senior leadership teams to find the best legal, risk and compliance talent in the market paying particular attention to culture fit and business strategy. Drawing on our strong network and dedicated research team, we’ve helped a wide range of organisations; from PE-backed to FTSE listed, to find the best talent whether on a permanent or interim basis.
