Since our inception, Segal Placements have been totally focused on building a strategic, quality search practice.
Our founding director Julian Segal, a qualified lawyer himself, has worked as a legal headhunter for many years, previously with two well-known agencies, before setting up Segal Placements.
Post qualifying but before working in legal search, Julian spent 8 years writing for the Chambers Legal Directories, where he helped to compile copy for Chambers UK and Chambers USA, the Who’s Who of the legal industry.
Eventually rising to Assistant Editor, whilst there he was tasked with speaking to the leading lights of the profession, be they Managing Partners, Heads of Department or Industry specialists, on a daily basis, and where he made connections with hundreds of such people over many years. This stood him in excellent stead when moving into the field of Legal Recruitment as he was to call upon his contacts as soon as he became a consultant.
Julian remains in contact with many of these key decision makers who have, for many years, facilitated him enormously when looking to introduce his candidates to that particular Firm.
With all of this in mind, we like to think that Segal Placements is perfectly positioned to help any Partner who is seeking a move, since whichever Firm best suits you and your practice, it is more than likely that we already have a good relationship with one of the key decision makers there.
