US giant scoops UK recruitment firm

British legal recruitment firm Badenoch & Clark has been bought by US giant AccuStaff Inc for an estimated £50m. Neither company will reveal the purchase price, but The Lawyer understands it was between £40 and £50m. AccuStaff Inc is the world's fourth largest staffing services company and Badenoch & Clark is its first acquisition outside of North America. Badenoch & Clark managing director Deirdra Moynihan said it had actively been looking for a buyer and the deal would allow the company to expand in the UK and beyond.
