About Thornton Legal

Thornton Legal is a recruitment business owned and managed by Joe Rees and Nick Tappin. We have strong relationships with law firms of all sizes and specialisms, and we help build the careers of solicitors and paralegals across a broad range of experience levels. The team has over 20 years combined legal and recruitment experience with Nick qualifying as a solicitor in 2003 and Joe working in the recruitment industry since 2005.

For candidates we work with:

  • We guarantee not to send your cv to firms without permission
  • We offer a fully consultative service as opposed to being a CV sending agency
  • We would rather have a chat over the phone so, if we are available, we will take you call 
  • We consult, support and advise, but ultimately the choice is always yours 
  • It’s really important to meet people, and we hope you feel the same
  • We won’t spam you with irrelevant jobs (but you may receive information we think you will be interested in)

The Thornton Legal Ethos

  • We don’t want to be the biggest but we do want to be the best 
  • Repeat business and referrals are key to Thornton Legal’s success 
  • We’re not interested in making quick sales but in building relationships
  • We are the bosses so we can tailor our service suit your individual requirements
  • This also means we can be agile and commercial when making decisions
  • We are a quality rather than quantity recruitment business e.g. No spam!
  • Running a business is hard work, so having a laugh along the way is important!
