lawyers or patent experts?

Above-average exam results, extensive experience, a strong specialisation, additional qualifications and preferably, immediate availability: The high demands made by law firms and businesses seeking new candidates must be met quickly and, above all, cost effectively. The legal professionals they require, however, know how to make the most of this very advantageous situation. Because of these factors, recruiting legal experts has become a lengthy process with a measurable impact on both clients and revenue.

Efficient recruitment thanks to our specialist expertise and electronic processes

Since 1991, Hays has offered law firms and businesses the support they need. As a pioneer in the field of personnel consulting, we put promising lawyers with great potential in touch with interesting employment opportunities. The majority of our German-speaking recruitment experts have studied law themselves, so they understand our customers' needs. The combination of their expertise, our certified quality management system (DIN EN ISO 9001) and a comprehensive database of candidate profiles across all levels and departments makes us a powerful partner to have on your side.

Our integrated approach makes it possible for us to simplify recruitment procedures and thus save time and resources. From targeted searches to contacting lawyers to the coordination of the interview process; with our integrated workflow, we can electronically manage all processes for you.

Individual recruitment advice for you

In contrast to other recruitment firms that merely act as headhunters, we provide businesses and law firms with individual employment consultancy, covering all aspects of the recruitment process. This includes market analysis, an evaluation of the required qualifications and experience as well as an overview of current price levels on the market. All of which means you benefit from improved cost management.

Bina Brünjes

After completing my legal studies in Frankfurt am Main, I moved to Chicago, Illinois in 1999 to pursue my LL.M (Master of Laws) degree at Northwestern University. During my training, I returned to Frankfurt where I specialised in IP (Intellectual Property) and competition law.

In 2004, I joined Hays to develop our In-house division. Since 2007, I have been in charge of our entire legal team nationwide, which includes not only our law firm and patents units, but also our Legal Temp business (lawyers working in a temp capacity).

If you would like to discuss your particular needs, I would be happy to hear from you.

In Frankfurt am Main I studied law at Johann Wolfgang Goethe University. After completion of my second state exam, I headed the civil law/litigation department for a medium-sized firm of solicitors for two years. Prior to joining Hays Legal, I also worked for two years in his family’s business.

I lead the Law Practice Team and have been advising national and international law firms throughout Germany on the recruitment of attorneys since 2006. I handle the recruitment of partners and entire teams as well as that of associates and senior associates. If you're considering a change of employment, please contact me.

After completing a commercial apprenticeship, I founded a digital photography agency in 2003 and was responsible for the sales and digitisation side of the business.

In 2009, I joined Hays AG as an Account Manager. Since joining the company, I have been responsible for supporting our customers in Northern Germany in recruiting IT specialists.
In addition to the traditional recruitment of freelancers, I am also actively assisting in introducing and implementing a managed service provision package at a large German insurance company.

Since the summer of 2016, I have been actively working to expand our temp legal business throughout Germany for both in-house customers as well as for legal practices. This applies in particular for contract law, document review and due diligence work.

If you require temporary legal support in your company or if you are a legal professional interested in working with some of our exciting customers on a temporary basis, please feel free to contact me directly.
