About Us


Mouland Mann is a specialist legal search and merger consultancy focused on partner appointments, team moves and mergers. Operating primarily within private practice at the partner level, our directors and consultants are well established names in the industry and have over four decades of combined experience working with a wide variety of leading firms with a London presence.

Retained Partner Search

We have an established retained search practice, underpinned by thorough research and unrivalled market knowledge. Representing a carefully selected, diverse and conflict-free portfolio of clients, we work as a strategic advisor throughout the process. We take pride in partnering with our client to gain a thorough understanding of their business and look to align that with highly appropriate and fully briefed candidates. We recognise the value of building relationships based on mutual trust and understanding. Together with our substantial expertise, we believe that our integrity, insight and instinct are crucial to our success. See Search.

Bespoke Research

Our clients can expect a level and depth of research which goes far beyond analysis of web based data. Decades of experience specialising in partner recruitment, and specific sector knowledge gained through practicing as lawyers ourselves, combine with our wealth of law firm contacts to enable us to comprehensively identify and attract the most appropriate people. Candidates are also thoroughly vetted and business cases critically assessed so you will not discover any unwanted surprises at any stage of the process. See Research.

Select Candidate Representation

The candidates we represent are invariably highly rated by the directories as leaders in their respective specialisms. We have spent many years steadily building our candidate network. Consequently our candidate portfolio is also enhanced by relationships with key partners who may be highly appropriate for a particular search but not actively looking to move.

Naturally we are also adept at making sophisticated and well thought out director led approaches to other suitable candidates. Others are directed to us by personal recommendation. Many of the partners we represent have been working with us for several years and have come to regard us as their trusted advisors with regard to their career options and aspirations. See Partners & Team Moves.

International Coverage

In addition to serving our clients in the London law firm market, our Hong Kong office engages in both private practice and in-house searches on behalf of clients in Hong Kong, Mainland China, Singapore and Tokyo.

Merger and Law Firm Financial Expertise

All of what we do is underpinned by our specialist law firm financial expertise, see Mergers & Financial Advice. We are the only legal search firm in the London market with a director who is a PWC qualified chartered accountant with law firm management and finance director level expertise, having served in both of these roles prior to setting up Mouland Mann. Consequently we specialise in all aspects of law firm mergers and have brokered some of the most transformational combinations over the last 20 years.
