Our Services

At Hughes Legal Recruitment, our focus is predominantly on senior recruitment (legal and non-legal) for law firms and in-house legal functions. We are proud to work with companies and individuals throughout Scotland and the UK.

In addition to our knowledge and insight, you can be assured that all of our services are underpinned by our core values of Discretion, Confidentiality, Integrity and Reliability.


We take a bespoke approach to recruitment. Each role requires careful consideration – different approaches and search methodologies can be appropriate. Working with you, we will agree the correct recruitment strategies. We can also assist with the creation of job specifications, to ensure best fit for your firm, and your culture.

We understand that certain roles are particularly sensitive and may require a unique approach. Similarly, we appreciate that the specific circumstances surrounding a search may give rise to a need for discretion and a tailored approach.

Personal day to day involvement by Michael Hughes and absolute discretion are guaranteed.


Through detailed discussion and face to face meetings, we work with you to identify your key drivers and requirements – and identify those opportunities most closely aligned.

We are focused on helping candidates (including senior non-lawyers) find the right opportunity by providing informed, nuanced and insightful analysis and support. 

We will work with you to optimise your CV, highlighting your strengths and assets, and helping you prepare for interview. In the first instance, we will agree with you our approach, including protection of your identity and CV.  

Throughout all stages, we will be contactable whenever required and we will ensure that you are always kept up to date, and informed.
