In brief: Personal touch for personnel recruitment

A new legal recruitment consultancy has been set up by Hugh Kelly, former head of personnel at City firm Ashurst Morris Crisp. Kelly has co-founded Kellyfield Consulting with Mark Field, a former Freshfields corporate lawyer who has been working in recruitment with Quarry Dougall. Kelly says: “As a client in legal recruitment over the last six years, I have become increasingly convinced that there is a gap in the market for a quality service, able to provide the personal touch to both candidates and law firms alike.”
