Our Method

We support law firms every step of the way, often helping to scope out senior positions where firms know new skills are needed but are unsure how to translate requirements to a well-balanced role. We then shortlist only those with the right mind-set and abilities, keeping them engaged through what may be a long recruitment process, supporting negotiations as an impartial third party, and helping to build and cement the foundations of relationships that last. These are the abilities that we pride ourselves on.

When you choose to work with Totum, you get:

1. The first and only leadership search team dedicated to placing business services leaders in law.
2. Unparalleled knowledge of the legal market, brought to you by a team that each has more than 20 years’ experience in legal recruitment.
3. Consistent delivery of excellence in personal service – a fact that we stake our reputation on.

At a senior level, we know that it’s the relationships that count. This is what Totum is all about. Understanding your needs, applying our expertise, and making the right matches across leadership communities to change the face of law.

We have worked on assignments covering all senior level job titles, across all functions, and we source candidates from a wide range of sectors including law, accountancy, property, pharmaceuticals, financial services, publishing, charity, recruitment and management consultancy.
