About Us

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.

Our consultants work closely with our clients to ensure that each receives an individual and personalised service. We have an established database of experienced candidates at varying levels and take a proactive approach to finding the right candidates for our clients. Ryder Reid’s aim is to achieve long-lasting, successful working relationships that benefit both clients and candidates alike.
