Urgent Placement for a Multinational Top-Tier law firm

Client: Multinational Top-Tier law firm

Industry: Legal 

This firm is a multinational law firm that operates in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region. The firm practices in a wide range of industries, including banking and finance, energy and resources, infrastructure and construction, technology, real estate, and more.


The firm was urgently seeking a Senior Practice Assistant to provide support to the Managing Partner based in Melbourne. This position requires a high level of professionalism, organisational skills, and the ability to navigate a fast-paced legal environment. The Managing Partner serves as a key leader within the firm, and wears many hats. The role was integral, ensuring the smooth support of the Managing Partner’s diary and practice group. They were facing challenges in finding suitable candidates due to it being a candidate-short market and a busy period around Christmas.

Our Approach:

Targeted LinkedIn Search: Leveraging our extensive network and expertise in legal recruitment, we conducted a comprehensive search on LinkedIn, specifically targeting Senior Practice Assistants within Corporate Law.

Thorough Screening and Assessment: We conducted a rigorous screening process to identify candidates who met the client’s criteria.


Due to our extensive network, we were able to source a suitable Senior Practice Assistant who was immediately available after having recently resigned from a Senior EA role. We were capable of organising initial interviews fast and secure the candidate for a January start.
