Welcome to Ryder Reid

Ryder Reid Legal was founded in 1994 by Beverley Ryder and Ciara Reid, who recognised that the recruitment requirements of US law firms were unique in terms of working practices and culture. Ryder Reid has since established itself as London’s premier recruitment and search agency working with US and International Law Firms. More recently, in response to client demand, Ryder Reid has diversified into the UK law firm market and now also works with many of the top UK law firms, who value the individualised, 24-hour customer service our consultants provide.

Ryder Reid specialises in recruiting at all levels, from Senior Executive roles through to Secretarial, HR, Finance, Marketing and IT roles, on both a temporary and permanent basis. We are also the market leaders in the recruitment of lawyers and paralegals for the purposes of Document Review/eDiscovery and have built a strong reputation as the preferred supplier for many of the foremost law firms in London. Ryder Reid recruits experienced lawyers and paralegals from many different jurisdictions and a range of linguistic backgrounds, ensuring we can meet the varying needs of our international clients. We offer a consultative approach by providing firms with different recruitment options for document review, in addition to up-to-date market information.

Ryder Reid Legal are continuing to operate as normal to support both our clients and candidates during this difficult time – we have taken measures to protect our staff, candidates and clients and are conducting client meetings and candidate registrations via telephone and video facility.  Our staff are also working from home and are fully up and running as per our business continuity plan.  All phone numbers are operating as normal and all consultants can be reached via their direct dials and emails. 

As this situation is ever-changing, we are taking our lead from the government as well as our clients and candidates.  For those who are still interviewing for roles, we are asking that all candidates and client follow government guidelines in relation to washing hands and to inform us if they have travelled to any of the countries listed.  This will also include if they have been in contact with individuals who have been to these areas – a full list of the guidelines can be found here.   We hope everyone stays safe during this time and thank you to our clients and candidates for their continued support.
