I am very clear about what I stand for. My aim is to deliver to my clients the best lawyers in the market. They may not necessarily be the best lawyers currently seeking a move.
I take my clients and my work seriously but not myself. I believe that you can be professional, creative, ethical, focused and successful and still keep a smile on your face.
I believe that this is why clients, targets and candidates enjoy working with me.

1 2 1 I work on a one-to-one basis in partnership with lawyers to help them to maximise their career success.

“Addleshaw Goddard have used Glass Consultancy for the past 12 months and have been delighted with their results. ... We have been impressed with the quality and breath of their research. Jonathan's been great to work with and has over delivered on our expectations. We look forward to continuing to work with Jonathan in the future.”
"We have enjoyed working with Glass Consultancy in our recent successful campaign to develop and strengthen our London ... office. The research was extensive and well presented, and Glass was clearly on top of the market information. Jonathan added his customary direct advice and encouraged us with his positive attitude, supporting us over the refinement of our search and culmination of it - the quality of candidate was particularly impressive, helped no doubt by Jonathan’s intuitive grasp of our business, what we could offer and what we were looking for. Large enough to deal with our assignments, but small enough to care, Jonathan and his team provide a personal service which gets results."

"The quality of the Glass research product was exceptionally high, showing not only the necessary industry knowledge and an ... understanding of our practice, but also including really helpful insights which could only have been obtained through thorough research. Our follow up discussions were realistic and informed. Jonathan stood out as having the necessary combination of qualities of 'likeability' and professionalism that would assist in getting candidates to meet with us, understand our offering and ultimately to join. We knew we would be looking at a very limited pool of possible hires from the outset and we also knew that the top targets were loyal to their existing firms and understood to be unlikely to move. Jonathan worked his magic against a tight timetable."
