About Thornton Legal

We’re proud of the testimonials we receive and we feel there is no better way to promote Thornton Legal’s recruitment services to future clients and candidates.Below is a selection of testimonials given to us over the past few months: 

Property Solicitor Joe is a very diligent, honest and professional recruitment consultant. He took the trouble to get to know exactly what I was looking for in my next role and delivered. I would have no hesitation in working with Joe again in future and would definitely recommend him to fellow professionals.

Family Solicitor I can't recommend enough the professional service I received from Nick at Thornton Legal .  He took a lot of the stress out of searching for suitable roles.  He kept informed and was always available to speak to when I needed him.

Private Client Solicitor Nick was really helpful in finding me a great new role. Before contacting Thornton Legal I was unsure what was available on the legal market job wise. He had lots of good advice and before too long he was able to secure me a new private client solicitor position at a firm that offered the flexibility I required from a childcare perspective. I would definitely recommend Thornton Legal to anybody looking for a move. They are well connected with firms in Lancashire and offered a consultative service instead of pushing me in any particular direction. 

Family Solicitor I would highly recommend Joe Rees who took the time to assist me in finding the ideal new role. Joe took a pro-active and tailored approach which resulted in a successful move for me as a candidate, and I found Thornton Legal to be supportive throughout which made the process far less stressful than I was expecting.

Costs Draftsman Nick was a real help in finding me a suitable new role in the centre of town. I was really happy with his efforts and he was able to negotiate a good deal for me in a role that I was suited to. I would definitely recommend any Costs Draftsmen in the market use Thornton Legal in their job search"

Residential Conveyancer I would highly recommend Thornton Legal and Joe Rees to anybody looking for a new position within the legal arena. I had been looking for 'the right move' for several months and Joe has facilitated that for me. His support for me as a candidate was outstanding, ensuring I had the best information at my fingertips in preparation for my interview and then afterwards ensuring that I was offered the contract which met my requirements. Thus creating a win-win situation for both employer and candidate, which can only be good for a successful long term working relationship. The 'Congratulations' card I received was a really lovely touch too.

Senior Commercial Solicitor I would highly recommend Joe Rees and TL to any solicitor seeking a move. He took the time to meet with me which was both appreciated and useful. Not only were TL professional and attentive but Joe Rees's knowledge of the market and that he didn't just at obvious placement positions resulted in a very successful move.

Private Client Solicitor I had the hard task of finding a new job retraining into Wills and Probate from a litigation background. It proved to be a very pleasant task with the help of Joe. Joe was very positive and helped me prepare for interview. He went above and beyond the call of duty and met with me before the Interview. He was extremely helpful and approachable throughout the process and I could not recommend Joe or Thornton Legal enough. After my interview Joe then met with the Law Firm and made sure I was offered the best contract. I loved the extra touch of receiving a Congratulations Card when I secured the job. From my previous experience of recruitment consultants, it often seemed impersonal but Thornton Legal made the whole experience very pleasant.

Managing Director Having rarely used agencies in the past to assist with recruitment, it was refreshing to come across Thornton Legal who exceeded expectations.  I dealt with Joe throughout the process who understood exactly what we were looking for in the ideal candidate and I was impressed with the calibre of CVs that I received.  I have now placed a candidate via Thornton Legal and I am using them again to source a candidate for a new position.

HR Director I have worked with Thornton Legal since I moved to my current firm in the Spring and I have found him to be both professional and polished in the manner in which they deal with their clients and their needs in terms of candidate profiles. Look forward to working with them again in the future.

Private Client Solicitor Joe was fantastic from beginning to end and even thereafter. He found me a role that suited my needs to a tee. He offered unfettered support and guidance throughout the whole process and made a very difficult time for me much more bearable. I would recommend Joe to anyone considering new opportunities.

FILEX Insurance Litigator I would highly recommend the services of Thornton Legal.  When I got in touch with Nick it was a refreshing change from what I had experienced with other recruiters.  He put me forward for a specialist position following a lengthy discussion about my career to date, where I wanted to be in the future and provided full support throughout the process. I would certainly utilise Thornton again should the need arise and would encourage others to do so.  Their level of communication and personal touch is, in my experience, unrivalled in the legal recruitment industry.
