Unlike many legal recruitment consultants, our teams solely specialise in each discipline and location across the UK, giving them unrivalled insight, local knowledge and contacts.We understand that you’re looking for a specialist legal recruiter who understands your market thoroughly.

That’s why with BCL, although the level of care and attention remains the same, the process and the consultant will not.

We also assist with recruitment advice and assistance, regularly advising partners and practice managers on suitable salary and package levels.

We offer unlimited permanent and locum recruitment for a fixed monthly fee or one-off fees depending on the job. We donate 10% of our profits annually to charity, hence our name.
At present we have three recruitment consultants, Jonathan Fagan, Clare Fagan and Pete Gresty. Together we have over 40 years of experience in the legal profession. Jonathan Fagan is a qualified solicitor and still (reluctantly!) undertakes litigation on behalf of the company when required.
The Ten-Percent Group of Legal Recruitment websites gives 10% of annual profits to charity (hence our name). We have carried on with this tradition since we formed the company in April 2000. So far over £100,000 has been donated to charities in the UK and Africa including LawCare and the CAB.

"We source legal professionals for high profile top 100 and legal 500 firms, in line with their talent management and recruiting strategy. We are very niche - we are a team of ex lawyers and/or CIPD qualified professionals and we only work in the main within Property & Construction Law and thus are in a great position to ‘pin point’ the best candidates in the marketplace for your business."
