The employment law recruitment process can be difficult and time-consuming. We understand that when conducting the process of senior recruitment law firm, hiring teams can be under a lot of pressure.

At Executive Headhunters EMA Partners we have extensive experience making this process easier, finding ideal candidates for businesses in the legal sector.

One of these businesses is legal firm Mossop & Bowser Solicitors. Let’s take a look at the journey we embarked on with Mossop & Bowser, finding them the best candidate for their business and their business opportunity.

The Business


Founded in 1826 by Robert Mossop, Mossop & Bowser Solicitors are a traditional legal professional service. Mr C M Bowser became a partner of the firm in 1916, and the business became Mossop & Bowser. They offer a bespoke legal advisory service to their clients, and believe that every client has the right to receive tailored advice based on their individual wants and needs.

They believe in providing an efficient, cost-effective, and fast service. Making full use of modern technology in order to enhance the advice provided for their clients.

The Challenge

Mossop & Bowser needed to recruit a Litigation Solicitor who could take on a senior role within their business. There was a family and employment law emphasis to the role.

The business has large industry presence, and offer a complete legal service. As such, they required a talented professional solicitor with a positive outlook who would be able to maintain Mossop & Bowser’s strong brand image.

Although the need to find a candidate for this role was urgent, Mossop & Bowser emphasised that this shouldn’t lead to any compromise in candidate quality.

The Ideal Candidate

The successful candidate would need 4-5 years experience in family and employment law, and have an ethical and personal approach to business.

The candidate had to demonstrate they had sufficient experience dealing with clients on a personal basis. They also had to be competent with technology, with a natural drive to work effectively and efficiently.

Mossop & Bowser’s management team preferred to promote from within, and their business has an upward trajectory. As a result, the ideal candidate for this role had to have a naturally driven attitude. They needed to have a clear aim to establish themselves in the role and work their way up the company.

Our client requested we provide candidates from relevant firms, who were found within a certain geographical area. We then searched ‘outside the box’ for candidates who possessed the necessary transferable experiences and skill sets. We took this into account and followed this procedure in the course of our detailed executive search.
