Finding the right position for you...

Having been a lawyer and candidate myself, I understand how difficult it is to find a good consultant who will answer their phone, reply to emails, keep you updated and give honest feedback.

It's also hard to find someone who acts in your best interests when their focus is on hitting targets. We are able to offer a much more personable and responsive service because we work with fewer candidates and have realistic targets.

We listen to your career aspirations and offer tailored job searches so that we can focus on finding the right opportunity for you!

About Us

Chris Woodward, Director & Founder

I originally trained and qualified as a lawyer with a well-regarded City firm before moving to a market leading legal recruitment consultancy (assisting lawyers with their moves to a wide range of Legal 500 and Chambers rated law firms). I founded Progress Legal (originally CGW Legal) with the aim of providing a friendly, trustworthy and more bespoke legal recruitment service to a high quality candidate and client base.
