Don’t Just Take Our Word For It.

Managing Director

5 Legal have been an excellent recruitment partner for us. They have now found two permanent members of staff who have been excellent additions to our team. 5 Legal listened to our requirements exactly and have proved to be very efficient, communicating at all times throughout the recruitment process. We could not recommend them more highly and have not found the need to use any other agencies.



I would highly recommend Matthew at 5 legal. He worked very quickly and found a position for me and an interview was arranged within days. I was offered the post in an excellent practice and have never looked back. I feel that Matthew went “that extra mile”. Very much appreciated.
