At Whitworth Brough we provide four core services to our clients:

Executive Search

Whitworth Brough has proven expertise in advising clients on how to deliver a search project successfully. Search is a talent acquisition tool that is best utilised in parallel with a client’s own strategy. Going beyond just identification, we work with you to craft a message to take to market; manage your brand reputation; and, where necessary, change perception and project manage the search to a successful close.

Whitworth Brough provides these services to law firms for Partner, Counsel and strategic Associate hires, as well as, CEO, CFO, COO, HR, Marketing, Business Development and other management and administrative hires.

For In House clients we provide these services for GC, CLO, Head of Legal, Deputy GC and Counsel hires.

Due Diligence

Our due diligence services are bespoke to the needs of the client. This discreet and confidential service should provide the client with facts and detail to better inform decisions and assist with integration.

Whitworth Brough’s due diligence reports provide the client with intelligence to assess the quality of the potential hire, the likely success of on-boarding, business critical information around financial planning, and assist with an integration strategy (including coaching where necessary).


Our consultancy and advisory services complement all of our work. Our market and product knowledge can be used to focus on niche but business-ciritical areas. These include:

  • Competitor analysis, including organisational structure;
  • Sector analysis;
  • Remuneration and salary reports;
  • Succession planning; and
  • Merger viability.


Reinforcing the Whitworth Brough approach, we look at ways to ensure that the completion of the process results in a successful and lasting hire. Working with a team of qualified coaches, with their own careers spent in the legal sector, our clients use coaching to help with integration, development and retention of their investment.
