Why lawyers open to a career change prefer Foxwood’s legal recruitment experience

Today's legal recruitment firms work surface level, relying on nothing more than high level details to pitch opportunities based on nothing more than a candidate's online profile. We understand that what is important in an opportunity varies greatly from one lawyer to the next, and just as a doctor wouldn't write a prescription without first conducting a diagnosis, our recruiters don't pitch opportunities to people we know nothing about.

Instead, we do what other legal search firms rarely do for their candidates - ask what they want.

Taking the time to understand what is important to each candidate allows us to match them with opportunities that are in line with their professional goals, and will relieve their professional pain.

The Foxwood Way

Candidate Confidentiality

Foxwood is able to offer more and better opportunities while maintaining candidate confidentiality further into the recruiting process than any of our competitors. We take every precaution to avoid sending a candidate's information to a client only to learn that the firm is not interested in meeting with them in the first place.

No Retainers, No Exclusivity.

We don't do retainers. If we were in a candidate's shoes, we wouldn't want to speak to a recruiter who's trying to sell us on the one job he or she is under pressure to fill.

Refusing retainers allows us to offer candidates a full range of options in the market along with unbiased advice, giving the good and the bad with every opportunity.

Real Law Career Consulting

Throughout the recruitment process, our legal head hunters provide valuable and relevant interview preparation sessions, critical interview debrief calls, and expert coaching.

We believe that, with all things being equal, a Foxwood candidate will come out on top 100% of the time.
