Ortolan Connect Law

What is Ortolan Connect Law?

Ortolan Connect Law is our fixed fee legal recruitment service, helping law firms and businesses to recruit high-quality lawyers. Unlike traditional agencies that might charge you 25% or more of salary as their fee, with Ortolan Connect Law you pay a fixed fee of £1,200. Our clients include law firms and businesses with in-house legal teams.

We have a strong understanding of the legal sector. Our fast-growing sister company, Ortolan Legal, is a commercial law firm, authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. Its experienced solicitors specialise in corporate & commercial, employment law, dispute resolution, commercial property and insolvency. We benefit from access to their expert knowledge which, combined with our recruitment expertise at Ortolan People, enables us to recruit great lawyers. Our selection and assessment of candidates for you is informed by specialists who really know what you are looking for and understand how to identify candidates with the right attributes and experience for your position. We can not only judge whether a lawyer has the required technical skills and experience, but can also assess those other particular requirements which vary from position to position.

What's included in our £1,200 fixed fee?

Wandle engaged Ortolan People to design and deliver an assessment centre to support an organisational restructuring we were undertaking in early 2016. From the outset we were impressed by the intelligent and responsive approach Ortolan took to this assignment. They designed a bespoke set of exercises to address our specific requirements and put together all of the elements we needed to enable them to deliver the assessment centre exactly as Wandle required. Their team were professional, always helpful and extremely responsive and they integrated seamlessly with me and my colleagues. It was exactly what we had hoped for and I would have no hesitation in recommending Ortolan to anyone who needs this type of service. They know what they are doing and deliver at a price point which feels like real value for money.
