We understand how important your first move can be – that’s why we use all our experience and expertise to make sure it’s the right one.

We can advise you on the best time to consider making a move, what area to specialise in and how to manage the qualification process.

We can provide as much or as little guidance as you need, even if your ultimate goal is to stay with your training firm. Like everything we do at Bygott Biggs, it’s a process characterised by patience, discretion and understanding.



When it comes to placing solicitors, it’s the combination of our depth of knowledge, our range of connections and our remarkable tenacity that helps Bygott Biggs get results.

We also aim to keep in touch with all our candidates as they progress through their careers. The knowledge and understanding this provides helps us find the right role for you, one that matches your skills, experience and aspirations.


We’re known and trusted for our discretion and confidentiality. This has enabled us to build long-standing relationships with managing partners, CEOs and law firm HR directors, which in turn means we can deal directly with key decision makers on your behalf.

Another benefit of these relationships is we’re often aware of a firm’s growth strategies and recruitment plans before the wider market. We also understand the personalities of the firm’s partners, its structure, likely remuneration levels, department and team make up and the firm’s client base – all of which enable us to advise on the right fit.



We act for a range of UK and international companies, from the in-house departments of FTSE 100 businesses to companies looking to appoint their first in-house legal counsel.

Sectors include automotive, banking, construction, energy, financial services, house building, insurance, manufacturing, oil and gas, retail and transport, while positions range from legal counsel to general counsel and legal director.

Jane has been listening to me for over 20 years. It is something that she and the team at Bygott Biggs do rather well. And it explains why they are chosen by so many senior lawyers, to support them in their career moves, and by their law firms in recruiting the best legal talent.

Jane helped me to move firms as a partner. This was a true test of the level of Jane's discretion, especially around the financial discussions. It also showed me first hand the extent of her connections. Jane facilitated access to the key people at the right time and she was instrumental in making sure both sides got the most out of those discussions. I particularly appreciated Jane's input on my draft business plan, all of which I felt added value to the process.
