About Us

We are a legal search and recruitment company.

Founded by two of Australia’s best-known legal search and recruitment specialists, we have established deep relationships with strategically aligned clients.  We operate in a flexible but focused way to deliver a premium service in a rapidly changing legal market.

Our Approach

Developing deep and long-term relationships with our clients drives our approach to legal search and recruitment.  We invest the time required through clear and open communication to understand our clients’ business and help them attract, develop and retain exceptional people.

This approach to communication is mirrored in our dealings with candidates, ensuring that we have all the information relevant to assessing a candidate’s experience, strengths and suitability for a role.

These steps are integral to Montgomery’s unique Structured Assessment Techniques (SAT), which has consistently delivered long term successful placements.  The SAT assesses candidate information in the context of the carefully developed client parameters, market conditions and market predictions.

Our approach ensures that our clients enjoy the benefit of our experience and continuous monitoring of the legal market, which enables us to proactively add value to our clients’ businesses.

Our clients and candidates rely on our capability, but value our distinctive personality and approach.

Open and direct communication

We communicate concisely, openly and directly.  Our advice and views are informed by our knowledge of the market generally, but also by our deep understanding of the industries in which our clients operate.

Enjoy what we do

Our ability to provide a premium service is underpinned by our enjoyment in what we do.  We strongly believe that if we do not enjoy what we do, then we can hardly help other people on their path to enjoy what they do.

Our Clients

We are fortunate to work with a diverse range of clients including multinational conglomerates, international and top-tier law firms, Australian privately held companies, national law firms, government entities, not-for-profit organisations, boutique law firms and regional law firms.

Our commitment to excellent service remains the same whether you are global brand or a suburban law firm.
