CANDIDATE TESTIMONIALS

Working with a relatively small number of candidates through advertising and headhunting, we have more time to look after the needs of these individuals. Below are a few candidate testimonials from people who are clearly pleased with the results.

2023

I would thoroughly recommend Dan to anyone considering their options or looking to move. He was excellent throughout the process, from the initial conversations through to evaluating offers and accepting the position. Great, honest and helpful advice from an experienced and calm head.

David Hicks, Simmons &Simmons Partner
I was incredibly lucky to meet Dan who quickly proved to be exceptionally skilled at what he does while always keeping his good spirit. He truly is in a league of his own.

Dan knows the legal market inside out. Besides being super professional and reliable, what I particularly liked about him is that he really cares about his candidates. He is great at focusing on their long-term career prospects as well as being a great strategic thinker. THANK YOU Dan for landing me a job that I am so much enjoying – you are an absolute star!

Ksenija Radonjic, Gibson Dunn & Crutcher

Jane is fantastic. She has a deep understanding of the PSL market and can offer meaningful insights and advice when you need it most. She’s also just really lovely to deal with.

Johnny Shearman, Greenberg Traurig
Jane is professional, patient, enthusiastic, responsive and highly knowledgeable about the PSL market.She provided me with expert support and advice throughout the application process, from initial market insights to very practical guidance at the offer stage. She is also a good listener and a great pleasure to work with. I would not hesitate to recommend her.
Rebecca Timms, CMS
Stephen was excellent. As well as being highly personable and great fun to work with, he was always available and keen to assist (whether that was by sharing his knowledge / insight into the market, offering practice interview sessions, being honest and transparent during the entire process or by taking me out for lunch to celebrate an offer).
Luke Kinrade, Sullivan & Worcester
Jane looked after my application for a professional support lawyer role and I found her to be very knowledgeable and well informed about what the role would involve and what the firm were looking for in terms of candidates – she was able to answer any questions I had on the role really quickly and with lots of detailed information. She prepared me well for each aspect of the process and was fully engaged with me at all stages. She kept me updated with any information from the firm as soon as it was available. Her approach was helpful, supportive and encouraging and also very pragmatic and responsive. On a personal level, our conversations were enjoyable, relaxed and she was a real pleasure to deal with.
Annie Harvey, Taylor Wessing

I’d been looking to move for a while and hadn’t found the right role. Rather than simply directing me to roles which were openly advertised, Stephen put me in touch with a contact which wasn’t openly recruiting but which he felt was a good fit. The move was a big step up in terms of the standing of the firm I moved to, and I wouldn’t have been able to make the move without Stephen taking the effort to seek out the opportunity, and guiding me through the process. He was good to deal throughout and didn’t push me to apply for roles which weren’t right. I’d highly recommend Stephen.

David Johnson, Simmons & Simmons
Stephen is a very trustworthy and professional recruiter. He did an amazing job in matching me with my current firm. Throughout the recruitment process, Stephen always took time to listen to me and give me guidance and support, where needed.

It was a great pleasure working with Stephen and I have no hesitation recommending him!

Lisa Dutiro, Bird & Bird
Jane is excellent to work with. She has a deep understanding of the PSL market and the evolution of the PSL role over the last few years. Jane totally understood my specific wish list and worked closely with me to make sure the role I was accepting was the right one for me. She was very patient and provided valuable guidance and insight throughout the process. I would highly recommend Jane and would not hesitate to work with her again.

Miles was a pleasure to deal with. He knows the market inside out and is able to offer well-researched and thoughtful advice. He takes into account your personal circumstances and does not put pressure on you to go for roles that won’t be suitable. On top of all of this, he is a really down to earth and personable individual. I would highly recommend him.

David has been an excellent recruiter, offering me guidance throughout the process, from exploring opportunities available in the legal market and selection of firms – suggesting opportunities that suited my PQE as well as long-term goals – through to preparing for interviews and follow-up. He always made himself available to answer queries that arose, providing trustworthy responses both via email and over calls. David’s interview tips were particularly appreciated, not least highlighting the value in telling a story about your career and building a rapport with those you are meeting. His advice was always positive and encouraging. I would not hesitate to recommend a conversation with David to anyone exploring a move.

I found Miles great to work with. He listened to what I would want in a new employer, and what my concerns with a move would be, and tailored his advice to that situation (which I find a lot of recruiters don’t do). He was very proactive, always happy to help and kept me informed throughout.

Katie Lewis
Taylor Wessing

Stephen is professional and hard working. He had done his research, and understood my practice and that of the firm that was looking. Throughout the (in my case, long) process between interviews and first day, Stephen remained on-hand and supported me throughout, including with interview prep, ironing out contractual issues and checking how the first days were going. If you are looking for a move, I highly recommend contacting him before other recruiters.

Associate

This is the second time I have turned to Miles and Noble to help me with my next career move. I was very pleased with the way the process was handled. Miles knew the market very well, was attentive and professional and helped me get a couple of excellent offers. Would recommend to anyone looking for their next professional challenge.

Michael Ioannides

Stephen was professional and very proactive. He went the extra mile in terms of interview preparation, and was extremely responsive.

Associate

Stephen and Miles were both great to work with. I appreciated the fact that they only put me forward for positions that fit my profile, and did not encourage speculative applications to a large number of firms. Once I was shortlisted for interview, they worked very closely with me at each stage so I knew what to expect and always checked in straight after each stage of the interview. I felt like I was supported and informed through the whole process, which definitely took a bit of the stress off!

Akin Gump

Adam recently helped to place me in a new role in a US law firm. He is pro-active and helpful and kept in close contact throughout the process. He took time to ensure I was prepared ahead of interviews and was encouraging throughout the process. If you are thinking about a PSL role I would recommend you contact him.

Adam helped to place me in a new role in a US law firm. He was extremely proactive and kept in constant contact throughout the process so that I was never left wondering how things were progressing. His in-depth knowledge of the firm was very helpful to me in preparing for the interviews as he could identify what would be of most interest to them. He was able to give me very useful insight into the firm and the interviewing panel. I would highly recommend him.

Kate Buttrey
White & Case

Miles and David were the consummate professionals in guiding me into a positive career move. Miles initially took the time to sit down in person to understand my background and priorities, rather than (as is so often the case) just presenting a shopping list of wholly unsuitable firms and positions. They provided invaluable advice and feedback throughout the interview and offer process, and ultimately we celebrated together such that it felt like a real team effort. If you are looking for a recruiter with whom to work in partnership, rather than simply for cold-call poorly-targeted approaches, then a strongly suggest speaking with Miles and David.

Stephen O’Grady
Taylor Wessing

Daniel and the team at Noble Legal were fundamental in securing me a job in London. They were always available to walk me through the London market and help me understand as an Australian how to approach firms. Noble Legal would immediately inform me of any opportunities and were always happy to provide further detail when I asked. As I approached interviews they provided me with detailed notes and guidance as well as going to extra step of calling me just beforehand to wish me luck (which is surprisingly beneficial!). Feedback after interviews was always quick and I felt they always had my best interests at the forefront of their minds. I would highly recommend Daniel and the Noble Legal team to anyone looking to work in London.

Robert Slattery
Mayer Brown

From the very first interaction with Adam I knew he was no ordinary recruiter. He is totally on top of his game, has immense knowledge and insight, is proactive, gives clear, useful guidance, and made my search for a new position very smooth, quick, and rewarding. I would highly recommend Adam.

Steven Rix

Dan was a fantastic help in finding me my new role. He was proactive, listened to what I wanted and put forward a really great position which I ended up taking. He managed the whole process and I am extremely grateful for his help.

Noble Legal consultant, Adam Shookhye, is truly committed to the candidates he represents. Always professional and engaging, I found his pre-interview preparatory work to be thorough and very helpful. He was able to apply his experience to identify the pertinent issues for each interviewer and this proved to be a valuable insight. I have no hesitation in recommending him to others; both candidates and employers.

Philippa Hayes

Adam is one of the best recruitment consultants I have worked with so far. He is friendly, enthusiastic, and kept me very well informed throughout the whole process. Adam is very personable and I felt that I could be completely honest with him when expressing my desires and concerns. As a result, he found me an excellent opportunity and provided sound advice. I would not hesitate to recommend him.

I have no hesitation in recommending Dan.

Harry Denlegh-Maxwell

Miles did a great job at helping me to find a NQ position. He is very engaging, proactive and friendly, which combined make him stand out from a number of other recruiters. At each stage of the interview process he kept me updated and provided very prompt feedback. I would certainly recommend Miles to anyone who is looking for a new position.

Harriet Dove
Sackers

I would highly recommend David. I found him to be friendly, approachable and professional. David took the time to meet with me before my first interview in order to go through tips for preparation and kept me fully updated throughout the interview process. Unlike other recruiters that I have dealt with, he was proactive in finding job roles that would suit both my needs and experience.

Laura Daly
Hamlins

Miles was an absolute pleasure to work with an invaluable help in finding me a great new Associate role in London (in a particularly difficult practice area). Miles took the time to understand my goals and worked hard to find a firm which fitted my personality and career ambitions. I would highly recommend Miles who is extremely personable, commercial and, above all, knowledgeable about the legal market.

Angie Wills-Risk

I would strongly recommend Adam and the Nobel legal team. Adam understood my search requirements and immediately began to recommend appropriate opportunities. I found him always ready to give pertinent advice and respond quickly to the demands of the recruitment process. Adam and the team’s personal touch really make a difference.

Daniel put me forward for a role for which I have been successfully recruited. He took the time to meet with me on a number of occasions and really got to grips with the role I was looking for and put forward a select number of positions. Daniel is an excellent communicator providing prompt and helpful updates and has an excellent working relationship with key decision makers in these firms. Daniel is a pleasure to deal with and made the process easy. I could not recommend him enough.

Adam Whitfield-Jones

Megan has been fantastically helpful throughout the process, guiding me every step of the way. In addition to getting the benefit of Megan’s numerous skills, I also appreciated the “human factor”; the process entailed a longer wait, and it was truly comforting to have the added support of such a capable recruitment consultant, who knew exactly when to chase for an update, when to leave it, and when I needed a follow up to make the delays more bearable.

Marina Semina

I’ve been extremely pleased with the support Megan has provided in securing my new role – the down to earth insight on my future employer, as well as the help in negotiating terms, has been invaluable.

Michael Jones

Miles was very professional and personable. He was helpful when giving advice and understood my specific needs. I would highly recommend him.

Anna A
Bristows

My initial contact with Noble Legal was through Miles Edson. Over a period spanning almost two years, and in the most positive sense, he kept me informed about developments and opportunities in the market. As well as being personable, Miles is patient, circumspect and discerning. From experience, I know that such traits are not always so obviously associated with those who practise in the recruitment sector.

With his reassuring knowledge of my background and ambitions for the future, Miles subsequently introduced me to Megan Williams. The knowledge that she had of her client – now my employer – was not only impressive, but it was also pivotal to my success. The support that Megan provided to me both before and during the recruitment process was first-rate.

In an ever uncertain and transitioning market, I would highly recommend to others the dedicated service that Miles and Megan offer.

Oliver Brooks
PWC Legal

Daniel has a very good knowledge of the market, the roles he identified were all relevant to my experience and well considered, and throughout the interview process he provided very helpful advice and assistance. I would strongly recommend Daniel and his team.

David is an attentive and supportive recruiter who genuinely has your interests at the forefront when conducting a search on your behalf. He was always readily available to address any concerns I had and provided me with regular updates on the progress of my applications. David and the team at Noble Legal provided me with the utmost support and reassurance to help me find a position I am truly happy with.

I appreciated that Noble Legal did not adopt a blanket approach to applications (which some recruitment companies often encourage you to do), instead we focussed on specific firms which delivered great results. If you want an efficient, personable and tailored service, Noble Legal comes highly recommended.

Misbah Imtiaz

I found Dan Smith of Noble Legal great to work with. He clearly has a very detailed knowledge of the legal market and took the time to understand the reasons for my wanting to switch firms and the nature of the work I do before suggesting and quickly effecting introductions to a number of suitable and high-quality firms. He was always available to provide assistance with business plans and interview preparations and his input was invaluable. I would not hesitate to recommend Dan to any private practice lawyer looking for a new opportunity.

Oliver Pilkington

David is upfront and easy to work with. He gives you an honest and fair appraisal of the opportunities that are on offer, including tips for success and whether the role seems right. You get the impression he’s in your corner and trying to get you that job you want as well as a good deal.

I am very grateful to Megan for placing me in my in-house role. Megan was highly professional and knowledgeable of the in-house legal market and the expectations of the particular company that I was interviewing for. Megan’s interview assistance was invaluable, particularly to someone that had last interviewed 8 years ago!!

Dan, Miles and the rest of the team at Noble Legal provide a first class service and were instrumental in helping me to secure a job at my law firm of choice. I felt in very safe hands from my first meeting with Dan right through to securing my offer. They clearly know their market and were able to give me really useful and practical advice for my interviews. I felt that Dan and the team properly engaged with the reasons I wanted to move firms and, as a result, took a very focused approach based on what was right for me. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone thinking of making a move.

Miles was integral in helping me secure my role. He was both professional and personal, making the process as straightforward as possible. He listened carefully to my requirements, secured me an interview with the firm of my choice, ensured that I was fully prepared and took the time to follow-up after each interview. Miles was recommended to me by a friend who rated him highly, and I would happily provide the same recommendation to others.

Keith Browne
Addleshaw Goddard

The service provided by the team at Noble Legal, and Dan Smith in particular, was first class. From the outset, Dan adopted a positive and pro-active approach to finding me the role I wanted. Dan and the team were a source of great support and advice throughout the interview process and, at every stage, they were working hard to progress matters and secure a positive outcome for me. Their efforts ensured that, from start to finish, the process was a seamless and stress-free one. It has been a pleasure to deal with Noble Legal; this is a quality recruiter that gets results for its candidates.

Cristin Mccann
Slaughter and May

Miles possesses all the qualities one should look for in a recruiter: deep industry-specific knowledge, honesty, patience, and an easy going, but confident, manner. Miles is meticulous in preparing his candidates for interview and he will always make time to meet candidates face-to-face.

Miles has fantastic contacts at many of the top Law Firms in the City – he secured me three interviews from three applications to Magic/Silver Circle firms.

Miles made the search process a breeze for me. Without being pushy, he guided me effortlessly through the whole process from CV preparation to receiving an offer.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Miles and, should I look to move in the future, I’ll trust Miles to guide my search again.

Ben Olushola
Linklaters

Dan Smith and the team at Noble Legal are professional, straight-talking and provide sound advice. As I was looking for a new firm at the same time as relocating to London, Dan not only presented me with suitable roles to apply for, but also provided useful advice about the London market more generally. Dan was particularly helpful to me by talking through the various options at different firms against my specific personal requirements. The team is excellent at keeping you updated and replying to emails quickly and efficiently. If your main contact at Noble is not available when you call, another member of the team will assist in the meantime, providing the same level of high quality advice.

Alex Szehidewicz
SJ Berwin

Miles is professional and polite. He has the right contacts at the big London IP firms and succeeded in introducing me successfully to both of my target firms within a week of receiving my CV. His guidance in respect of the interviewing and selection process was invaluable to me as a trainee who hadn’t been interviewed for several years. He always responds promptly with helpful suggestions and encouragement – highly recommended.

Dan Smith and the team at Noble Legal were instrumental in helping me secure the magic circle position I wanted. With a pro-active, “we-can-make-this-happen” approach, Dan helped me navigate the complexities of the London marketplace and guided me through the magic circle recruitment process so that I was well-prepared and knew what to expect. Dan and his team were in touch regularly throughout, taking a reassuringly no-nonsense, commercially savvy approach. Come interview time, they made sure that I was equipped with the information I needed so that I felt confident walking into the room and could perform at my best. With a good instinct for the market and with excellent connections in the industry, Dan and the team at Noble Legal helped make my magic circle dream a reality and I have no hesitation in recommending them to those looking to make a career move.

Niall Stewart

Noble Legal gave me a professional yet personal service throughout the entire recruitment process. My views were always listened to and taken on board, and I felt supported by the friendly team at all times. Overall, I found the advice provided by Noble to be invaluable and I would highly recommend them to anyone seeking to make a career move.

Tina
Magic Circle firm

I cannot recommend Noble Legal highly enough. They provide a genuinely first class service and were utterly efficient, professional and unobtrusive throughout the process. They distinguish themselves from competitor firms by taking a genuine interest in each candidate and through their commitment to understanding exactly the type of role each candidate is seeking. Their intricate insight and understanding into the legal market is also unrivalled and positions them perfectly to advise you on all opportunities. The excellent relationship they have with many of the city’s largest and most prestigious employers is also a distinct advantage and enables them to prepare you for interviews in a concise and accurate manner. I would confidently recommend Nobel to anyone who is looking for a smarter, more focused style of recruitment where the emphasis is on finding the best long-term fit both for the candidate and employer. A huge thank you to Miles Edson and all the team.

I recently accepted an offer to join the Restructuring department of a US firm in London. I dealt with Miles Edson throughout the process and was most impressed from start to finish. I initially met Miles for a general discussion regarding available positions and the market as a whole; he had clearly done his research and was well-informed but, equally importantly, he took the time to listen to what I had to say and assess what was important to me in any future role. Miles provided sound advice when it came to updating my CV (no mean feat as it hadn’t been touched for quite some time) and also more general comments as to what might be expected at each interview, etc. He was very prompt when it came to providing me with updates and feedback and also took the time to listen to my thoughts on both the firm and the people whom I had met. I found him both professional, trustworthy and friendly during the process and would have no hesitation in recommending him or seeking his advice at some stage in the future.

Peter Ibrahim

The level of service I received from Noble Legal was excellent. They took the time to understand my situation and identify the options that would work for me. Dan Smith [in particular] worked enthusiastically throughout despite the challenging market conditions and has excellent knowledge of the legal market. I never felt forgotten and was provided with extensive information prior to an interview. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dan and his team at Noble.

I have recently accepted an offer to join the corporate department of a Top 10 UK firm in their Hong Kong office. Dan Smith of Noble Legal provided an excellent service throughout. Firstly, he met with me for an hour to get to know me better and to give me some helpful advice about the firm’s recruitment process. Subsequently, he provided a considerable amount of very useful information about the firm, office, department and personalities involved at each stage of the process. He also got in touch very promptly to inform me that I had been successful at the previous interview and to confirm a time for the next stage in the process. Dan has clearly done his diligence on the big law firms and knows the market extremely well. He also has the ear of many influential people within the top law firms. For me though, Dan’s greatest attribute is his honesty. I lost count of the number of times other recruiters complimented me on how strong my CV was but were unable either to provide any further advice or to come up with any interviews at firms. Dan was able to identify my strengths and weaknesses in terms of experience and advised me where I should place an emphasis, both in terms of the layout of my CV and in the way I presented myself at interview. I may not have received as many platitudes from Dan as I had from other recruiters but his knowledge and opinions were invaluable. At the end of the day, I just wanted a job, not someone to massage my ego and Dan came up with the goods.

J. Parker
Corporate Solicitor – Hong Kong

The aspects of Noble’s service which I most appreciated were firstly the fact that they would not contact me about opportunities which did not meet my criteria and took time to get to know me and understand the type of role that I was interested in and that was best suited to me. All too often recruitment consultants will continue to call about the sorts of jobs that don’t fit the description you’ve provided, which is irritating. This doesn’t happen with Noble. Secondly, they are trustworthy. Trustworthy in that you won’t find the market flooded with your CV without your permission and trustworthy in that you are always under the impression that your best interests are being kept at the forefront of their discussions with their client. Finally, the Noble team are a thoroughly pleasant group of people and a real pleasure to work with while simultaneously being true professionals in their practice and reassuringly well versed in the industry.

D. Kirk
IP Associate – MagicCircle

Dan was awesome and did a great job. He really understands the legal market and gives practical, targeted advice. I really appreciated his proactive approach and regular updates. As a result, Dan quickly gained my trust and I had every confidence in him and his team. I would have no hesitation recommending Dan and Noble Legal.

I first contacted Noble Legal hoping to break out of a respected but very niche practice and into the general commercial litigation team of a world-leading firm – not a straightforward task after a few years of practice. Notwithstanding an historic downturn they’ve helped me to achieve that, and relatively quickly too. Daniel Smith and his team consistently identified the best roles before their competitors, and each time gave me invaluable insight into the firms that were offering them. Together we identified what I was looking for and how to get it. Equally importantly, Daniel was never shy to question whether something really was for me. That forward looking, cooperative approach couldn’t be more distinct from the blunderbuss approach assumed by many other recruiters, and it appears to inspire the same confidence in employers that it did in me; it is telling that my firm are using Noble to find my replacement. Responsive, straightforward and there with guidance at every turn in the recruitment process, I couldn’t recommend Noble more highly.

Noble Legal not only listens to your needs, but with you, they carefully target and tailor your search to firms you are aiming for and don’t put you forward for every possible firm, regardless of your views. They give you honest, reliable advice on each law firm, the good and bad sides and most importantly, whether they think you would fit in. Both David and Dan provided me with the comfort and reassurance I needed for the interview process and followed this up even after I accepted the job!

M. Liu
Corporate Solicitor – London

I arrived in London without a job. I had trained outside of the city. I had previously been trying to obtain a job through a recruitment consultant outside of London with no success. My CV was going to firms but apparently not to the right firms or the right people at the right firms. I decided to try recruitment consultants in London. After speaking to several other well known recruitment agencies I came across Noble Legal because of their carefully targeted marketing. I chose Noble Legal over the other bigger consultancies because of their positive approach and their can do attitude over the telephone in our first meeting. Within an hour of sending through my CV on the first day I spoke to them I had received feedback and by the end of the day they had obtained interviews for me at two firms that I would have been happy to work for. By Monday they had three firms willing to interview me. They arranged all three first interviews over the space of two days. I met my contact at Noble Legal on the same day as my first interview. They talked me through the process, including what was required and expected by the firms and gave me a much needed confidence boost. For the second interviews they obtained, through careful consultation with the firms, detailed information about the interviewers, more information about the firm and even some of the proposed questions. After each interview they gave me excellent debriefs and helped me choose the firm I eventually chose to work for, two weeks after I had first approached them. They also arranged an excellent employment package. In all it was an extremely well managed, thorough and professional approach and I remain very grateful for their efforts.

I approached Daniel Smith at Noble Legal following a personal recommendation through a colleague. At the time I was looking to change the emphasis of my legal career and become focused on a single specialism. I had not previously used a recruitment consultant and I felt apprehensive about whether an agent would have a genuine interest in finding me a role to fit my particular requirements. As part of the induction process, I had an initial meeting with David Crollick at Noble Legal during which time a detailed profile was taken with David taking particular care to understand my expectations and the sort of role which I was seeking and then progressing to explain the recruitment market and the procedure. I was immediately impressed by the professionalism of the firm’s approach and its bespoke service. During the interview process, my main contact was Daniel Smith. I was always fully briefed by Daniel Smith before I attended any interview and he demonstrated a detailed understanding of each firm’s business needs which resulted in a good rapport with the firms themselves. Daniel was quick to contact firms for feedback, to promote me as a candidate and always made himself available if I needed advice. This has resulted in my finding a role in a new firm in my specialist field. I would recommend this firm to anyone who is looking for agents who can provide individual client care without compromising on business acumen.
