Meet the Team: Legal

Posted February 2 2018 By Meena Bahanda

With over thirty five years’ experience and a network of connections that stretches beyond Scotland to the Channel Islands and the Republic of Ireland, the HRC Recruitment Legal Team are at the heart of their market. We firmly believe that our collective industry experience sets us apart and we are confident that we deliver the best quality for our clients and candidates.

Our Principal Consultant, Meena Bahanda, swapped the bright lights of London, where she worked as a PR Account Director for high profile food and drink brands, for home in Glasgow, where she began her Legal recruitment career fifteen years ago. She has worked for both national and independent recruitment firms in Scotland. Meena’s success, with both clients and candidates alike, is based on her dedication to confidentiality, honesty and integrity in every aspect of the recruitment process.

She has recruited at all levels of the Legal sector; from Paralegals to Partner level in Private Practice, Public Sector and In-House roles, primarily in the UK and the Channel Islands. Meena also recruits within international, magic and silver circle and mid-tier Private Practice and boutique firms. She covers a range of Legal specialisms including IP/IT, Corporate, Banking, Contracts, Litigation, Employment, Family, Commercial, Residential Property and Private Client.

Meena also has a love for networking and attends as many conferences and events as she can throughout the year, in order to keep her finger on the pulse of her market. She was joined here at HRC by Paul Steven in early 2017.  Paul is our Director of Executive Legal Search and brings to the company over twenty years’ experience in the market.

He has worked exclusively in the Legal sector throughout his career, both in Scotland and within the rest of the UK. His experience of working with almost all of the top law firms and many of the best niche boutique firms has enabled him to develop and incredibly well-rounded view of the market.

Paul brings this wealth of experience and fantastic network of contacts to strengthen our Executive level resources. He will be recruiting across Scotland for Partner level roles within the Legal sector. He will be head hunting senior lawyers for Private Practice firms in the major cities and beyond. His reputation across Scotland precedes him; Paul is known for his exemplary track record of successfully completed assignments.

Meena and Paul’s combined length of experience as specialist Legal recruiters is unparalleled in the recruitment market, making them one of the strongest teams in their sector. They have an unrivalled insight and understanding as to how the Legal market moves, what factors affect the recruitment process and, most importantly, what their clients and candidates are looking for.

So, if you would like your recruitment needs to be met effectively and efficiently, the HRC Legal Recruitment Team are the last word in their market.

Following our rebrand as HRC, we are delighted to be able to continue to support our clients and candidates with their endeavours in the Legal market.
