Successful recruitment is based on mutual trust between all involved stakeholders. For over 20 years, Hays has built solid bridges between companies, law firms and lawyers. Discretion, reliability and experience are the foundations of our recruitment strategy. Through our dedicated and committed recruitment consultants, we offer lawyers additional freedom to manoeuvre in a difficult market and highlight new directions in which they can move their careers.

Businesses and law firms benefit from our long-standing personal contacts with legal experts who have made outstanding achievements during their training and who can confidently perform on an international level. Our certified recruitment processes ensure we can effectively provide you with consultancy services that enable you to fill vacant positions quickly and reliably with promising new employees, well-trained lawyers as well as partners who can deliver a strong turnover.

Legal generalists and specialists who possess proven professional skills and relevant additional qualifications are in great demand by both law firms and the private sector. We see ourselves as partners in planning careers across all areas of legal employment and practice groups and provide free advice to all our candidates. As part of a personal, one-to-one interview, we analyse an individual's given qualifications and highlight the specific career options available on the legal market. And it is here that our network of contacts comes into its own, because we have offices in the most important economic regions throughout Germany. We also recruit for international positions in over 100 countries.

In addition to recruiting lawyers for legal firms, we recruit in-house legal experts across all industries and business sectors. We also recruit patent experts for patent departments in companies and law firms: This includes patent lawyers, patent engineers, patent officers and patent paralegals. Our portfolio of services covers all industries: automotive, plant construction and mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, etc. as well as the pharmaceutical and chemical industries.

The majority of our experienced consultants are themselves qualified lawyers who can bring their particular legal expertise to bear when handling your recruitment needs. And, of course, discretion is always top priority. We believe a successful placement is the best reference. Just take the first step - we'll be with you the rest of the way.
