Our Lawyers

Contax Law has curated a pool of vetted lawyers who enable us to provide to our clients innovative and flexible legal resourcing solutions. We also work with a number of paralegals, legal project managers and compliance professionals.  With the benefit of our years of experience in permanent legal recruitment and legal practice, we aim to provide our clients and with an excellent service. This requires us to get to know our lawyers’ individual preferences and strengths, to be able to place them effectively. We aim to only provide clients with lawyers who we have property assessed for suitability for the client’s requirements, not just from an experience but also from a personality perspective. Using our mobile App we can send our lawyers instant notification of new roles that meet the role criteria they have specified, to which they can quickly respond to express an interest in being put forward.

We employ processes to ensure that our lawyers are all of the highest quality, with training and experience at quality law firms and in-house roles. In addition to assessing their suitability for the specific role, we will vet their qualifications, identity, references, right to work in the UK, PI cover and criminal background.

Lawyer Testimonials

Here are some testimonials from the candidates we work with:

“Contax Law offers a personal and friendly service to its legal professionals.  I knew Nick the CEO from earlier in my career, and have got to know the other team members, who make me feel like a valued member of the pool of lawyers and that I am welcome any time in the office in London.  Contax are consummate professionals who know their market inside out.  I would trust them every time to match the right lawyer with the right role and vice versa.  I had been on Contax’s books for a while before I was placed in my first assignment, because of timing and my availability, but we kept in regular contact, and when a suitable role coincided with my being available, I was delighted to have the opportunity finally to work through them.”

Commercial Lawyer we placed with BT.


“Originally referred to the consultancy by a colleague and friend, I found them to be a pleasure to work with. Professional, knowledgeable and easy to get along with. In my experience of working for nearly 25 years in the Legal and Commercial environment, I believe them to apply a logical and fair approach in finding the best solution to any issues that arose (of which fortunately there were not many).”

Commercial Lawyer we placed with Fleet Solutions Ltd.
