Case Studies

Challenge – A large international law company were under immense pressure to quickly establish a new office in Northern Ireland and needed staff at all levels. The company was a large firm but with no local personnel, zero employer brand and no office; but we held several discussions with them on the phone, skype and emails. We even met their VP at an airport! We soon became a brand ambassador.

Solution – We supplied salary tables, data on candidate availability, insight on quality of hire, time to hire and cost of hire, held preliminary interviews (in our office) and managed it throughout. We have now placed over 100 people with them firm and they are one of the best clients we have ever worked with.


Challenge – A large manufacturing company were seeking to recruit a Senior In-House lawyer with strong commercial contracts experience.  This role would also involve travel to international offices.

Solution – Abacus presented a shortlist of 10 candidates that met the criteria and also assisted the client with shortlisting (criteria grids).  We co-ordinated interviews from candidates that were travelling from outside of NI and ultimately, successfully recruited a very experienced Lawyer.

Challenge – A large local Law firm were keen to hire an experienced Corporate Solicitor with niche talent for Funds. This role was challenging for them to attract the right quality of applicant as it was a Partner designate level appointment.

Solution – Utilising our online presence and our Social Media reach, we reached out to some experienced lawyers relocating from London and after meetings in London and Belfast, the acquisition was successful.
