About Us

Burgess Paluch Legal Recruitment is a boutique specialist legal recruitment agency.

We specialise in recruiting lawyers for law firms and corporate clients.

Our service is broad and of high quality. We recruit lawyers from equity partner level to articled clerks. Our clients include top-tier firms, multinational corporates and boutique practices.

We recruit in most commonwealth jurisdictions. Our experienced recruiters cover all capital cities within Australia as well as most countries Australian lawyers relocate to, including the UK, New Zealand, Asia (including Singapore and Hong Kong), Tokyo and the Middle East, as well as the US and offshore countries.

Whether you are an employer or lawyer, we will take the pain out of the recruitment process for you and free up more of your time to concentrate on what is important to you.

We understand lawyers. Founded by a former lawyer and leading legal recruiter, our aim is to provide personalised service to lawyers and make their career move as good as it can be. We provide straight-up, no nonsense advice, because we are lawyers, not salespeople. That’s why so many of our lawyers come to us by referral.

We understand and appreciate employers. Hiring a lawyer can be time-consuming and frustrating. Our role is to make the process smoother for you by providing up-front and frank advice, accessibility and accountability. After all, we’ve seen it first hand from the employers’ perspective. Our experience includes working for top-tier firms in HR on large projects and on contracts.

We are highly accessible. We do have the time to speak to you and talk about your particular needs. We understand that each client and lawyer is unique and we want to learn what is important to you and why.

Burgess Paluch Legal Recruitment was established because we believe we can provide better service within the legal sector than any other recruiter currently in the market. We promise not to forget the basics, like returning your phone calls promptly and being accessible when you need us most. At Burgess Paluch we also go the extra mile – encouraging you to benefit from our experience, understanding and market knowledge.


We partner with you to find the right opportunity for your long-term career success.


We focus on attracting high-performing lawyers for quality law firms, corporates and government.

Can't thank Thomas Hobbs enough for the time and effort he's gone to in helping me get my dream job. I hadn't been through a recruiter before, and never realised how helpful it could be to have someone in your corner every step of the interview and job offer process. It's been a pleasure dealing with Thomas; highly recommend.
