Joining Constantine Law

All our lawyers say they are “empowered”, “liberated” and earning more. They are free of politics and admin to concentrate on their practices and client work. We have a compelling recruitment proposition: unique in the UK legal market. 


We are not owned by a private equity house and our teams are structured by lawyers for lawyers.


Once you’ve read our compelling proposition, we’d like you to contact us in two ways:


  • To book a call with John Hayes and he can explain more

  • To allow us to send you a recruitment brochure.

Why join Constantine Law

Our recruitment offering

We are looking to recruit entrepreneurially focussed employment and regulatory lawyers, who have credible books of business. We have recently recruited our 15th lawyer. Our stated aim is to be the leading consultant-led employment and regulatory practice in the UK.

Our unique recruitment offering includes:

  • A better commission package including: (a) better percentages across the board for introducing and doing work; and (b) a commission advance for 6 months to take the “pain” out of joining: no other firm offers this

  • Support from associate and assistant solicitors: working collaboratively with a “pyramid” of lawyers, as you would now (no other challenger firm does this)

  • Better support package: full PA cover, PLC paid for, High-level press-comms support, tax advice and company set-up to maximise advantages of the model; you won’t prepare your own bills or open your own files

  • Collaborative firm: weekly meetings and twice-annual strategic away days to involve targeted business development and know-how support for your practice

  • Active support to develop your “book”: including free restrictive covenant advice

  • True expertise: we will only focus on the law of work. And we are owned and run by an employment lawyer, not a private equity house. You will have what you need to do high-level employment and regulatory work.

Joining is easy,
work from anywhere

We understand that the process of joining a law firm can be daunting and we deconstruct that process for you to make it as easy as possible. We do this as follows:


  • Full IT support: We will configure a lap-top and desk-top for you immediately. With good wi-fi you can work from anywhere. We provide full IT support during the working day from a leading IT-consultant. We use the leading cloud-based document management system (NetDocs) + Outlook 365 + time recording software.


  • Inception programme: Fully supported by our experienced PA team: broken-down and tailored to your needs. Partners can start productive work immediately.


  • Co-ordinated marketing “launch”: Each of our new partners has been “launched” with co-ordinated Linked In + Press campaign to maximise your marketing potential. 


  • Charge-out rates + Billing: partner-consultants set their own rates. Partners have total professional freedom. Our PAs raise and chase the bills. 


  • Full PA support: unlike other challenger firms, we meet the cost of PA support. You don’t have to buy-it on a per-hour basis. Our PA team have over 100 years of PQE between them. 


  • Facilities: Paid for use of the Clubhouse or an equivalent regional office/Document archiving and secure storage/active marketing support from a dedicated professional.


  • Know-how Training and CPD: Full PLC and Westlaw access. Access to firm precedents. Membership of ELA/ILPA/etc. 

Culture and Values

We had an away day. Everyone was invited and everyone spoke: partners, solicitors, PAs, support staff. 


We invited a brand-consultancy to gather the “essence” of Constantine Law. We agreed on our 4 core values and they mean something tangible for us:


  • Clarity: by which we provide solutions-orientated advice from experienced lawyers. What does this mean? Team members speak of becoming better lawyers (even after many years practice) because they are freed from meaningless admin and meetings to do what they love: deliver solutions for clients. Directness, or unmediated excellence, is therefore a core value. 


  • Modernity: We are a modern law firm. We do deploy the latest cloud (and other) solutions to do law more effectively. For each of our core services we work with outstanding outsourced suppliers to deliver the best solution. The way we do business matters to us, and our clients, and we will continue to deploy the latest business solutions to meet the needs of the times. 


  • Value: by stripping-out fixed overheads we pass on the cost savings to our clients. Lawyers set their own rates and they are frequently somewhat lower than competitor firms. Our clients benefit from our modernity by paying less.  


  • Collaboration: We work together, between ourselves and with our clients to get outstanding results. We have a weekly team meeting. We have away days. We don’t have politics. People are supported and valued. They are happier. Our people describe Constantine law as the best place they’ve ever worked.
