In-house Legal Recruitment: It’s all we do!
Florit Legal is a legal recruitment consultancy specialising in in-house legal jobs. We are experts in the search, selection and retention of in-house legal counsel. The recruitment projects we are retained on range from General Counsel and Company Secretary, Legal Director and Head of Legal jobs down to less experienced lawyers taking on their first in-house legal counsel position. We are one of only a small handful of top legal recruitment agencies in the world focused exclusively on in-house legal jobs.

I would absolutely recommend Florit Legal... I have dealt with Miguel now for many years, both when in private practice and subsequently having moved into industry. Miguel is one of the most knowledgeable and passionate recruitment professionals I have met and very sensible with it. He has always been clear with me that his role is to help employers and candidates make the right connections and be a good "fit", and to ensure that the introductions he makes will give the best for both parties. It's a great philosophy which helps to explain why if I have a recruitment query, Miguel is usually the first person I call.
I've known Miguel for years- absolutely top man; as good as you'll get. He's become a friend.
Miguel did a great job in helping me secure my first in-house role. He counselled patience in waiting for the right opportunity, and he found a role in a team that was an excellent fit for me. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Florit Legal to anyone looking to make the move from private legal practice to in-house.
The team at Florit Legal have an exceptional wealth of market knowledge, coupled with expert legal/recruitment experience, the go-to legal recruitment firm.
Miguel has assisted me in my recruitment for over 8 years and has consistently met my requirements in terms of quality of applicants and speed of response.
I've known Miguel for many years as both a candidate and customer - the advice from both perspectives is honest and appropriate.

I have known Miguel for a number of years and have had the pleasure of dealing with him on a number of occasions. Thoroughly professional and great market knowledge.
I have dealt with Miguel and his colleagues over a number of years both as a candidate and in instructing his firms to find candidates. I have found the firms he has led to be professional and tenacious in achieving a good outcome for all in either situation.
I would highly recommend Florit Legal to anyone either looking for their next move in house or wanting to take that first in house step. So much more than a legal recruiter they provide holistic and down to earth advice on advancing your career. Great people to deal with all round.
I have had dealings with Miguel and the team over a number of years. The team provides excellent and regular communication on where the recruitment process stands. Great care is taken early on to get to know candidates and employers so that when introductions are subsequently made, there are excellent matches. Thoroughly recommend Florit Legal to employers and candidates alike!
Professional and quality service provided. The owner of this firm is hands on, available and gives valuable market information. He also has an extensive network and I was pleased with the results. Will use again and would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.
