Duane and Abbie, specialist recruiters

Duane Cormell and Abbie Hart, two ambitious recruiters aged 27, are celebrating the launch of a new specialist legal recruitment consultancy.

Realm Recruit begins trading this month and will work with a variety of private practices, ranging from niche and boutique firms, to Legal 500 listed regional practices.

Based in Altrincham, Cheshire, the new consultancy will focus on recruiting outstanding talent throughout the North and the Midlands.

Using award-winning technology and advanced methodology, Realm will take an innovative approach to candidate assessment, going beyond the traditional CV approach to save administrative time, reduce costs and drastically increase employee retention, breeding a whole new level of efficiency.

Duane has specialised in legal recruitment for five years and is a recognisable figure in the West Midlands and North West markets. He has recruited for a range of private practices and public sector bodies, as well as a number of Blue Chip companies.

Abbie is an experienced recruiter who has focused on the legal sector in recent years. She has extensive experience in the North West legal market, having worked with a large number of private practices in the region.

Duane comments on the launch, “There is a gap in the market for truly innovative legal recruitment and we believe that by using market-leading technology and assessment methods can deliver better value to our clients, whilst ensuring exceptional service.”

Abbie adds, “In the same period of time in which office-based working has been revolutionised by ever-improving technology, the traditional recruitment model has essentially stayed the same. We aim to combine extensive experience in our markets with a cutting-edge approach in order to put Realm at the top of its game.”

How does your law firm manage and track leads? Part 1

David Kerr

You’ve set up your new website, invested in getting to number one in Google, implemented other online and offline marketing activities to support your business objectives and then, wait for it… The phone rings. Great! A new client, right? Easy! Sadly, for too many firms, this isn’t the case. In an increasingly competitive market place, law firms invest enormous amounts in marketing and lead-generation activities. They invest yet more in getting the very best lawyers they can to carry out the work. Yet most firms pay little heed to one of the most important parts of the process: converting enquiries into paying clients.
