Legal Search


Mclean Executive is a privately owned legal search firm based in Hong Kong and we pride ourselves on being true legal search specialists across both private practice and in-house.  The firm is not a generalist search firm and we only work on legal search mandates.  Our sole ambition is to be the legal search firm of choice in Hong Kong. 

Having spent many years specialising in the Hong Kong legal market we have built deep and lasting relationships across both Private-Practice and In-House.  As a result of this the majority of the roles we recruit for are confidential, exclusive to the firm and not available or widely known of in the public domain.  We complete our mandates by utilising our extensive network as well as headhunting candidates specifically for specialist legal roles.  The firm does not advertise roles on job boards or even on our own website and the only way to hear about the mandates we are instructed on is by subscribing to our exclusive weekly job alert.  This will ensure you are amongst the first to hear about some of the hottest new roles on the Hong Kong legal market. 


You can trust

Candidate and client experience is at the heart of all decisions made at Mclean Executive and you will always be advised on what to expect during initial discussions with the firm.  When partnering with us we want you to have the best experience possible and our focus will always be on long-term relationships and never on short-term profits.  The firm wants to partner with you for the rest of your career, not just one move.  We encourage you to read our testimonials page which contains quotes directly from lawyers we have partnered with previously and ultimately placed into new positions in Hong Kong.  We are hopeful this will give you comfort that we will always look out for your needs first and advise you accordingly.  We have assisted many lawyers in making career defining moves and are frequently trusted with referrals which makes up a large proportion of our business.


Our team members have been top performers in the Hong Kong legal market for a number of years and are trusted advisors to many of the leading law firms, financial institutions and most prestigious MNC's across Hong Kong.  As demonstrated by our testimonials we are able to facilitate highly desirable moves for legal professionals looking to progress their career.  We will be able to provide you all the information you require whether that is guiding you on current market rates, bonuses being paid out, differences between in-house and law firm culture and ultimately we will more often than not be able to achieve a positive end result for you.


Referrals from our trusted network really do make up a large portion of the lawyers we partner with.  We want to give something back to the city and legal network who so consistently trust us with vital career moves.  For every lawyer referred to us whom we place in a new role and goes onto complete their probation period, we will either give you a HK$5,000 luxury goods voucher or donate HK$5,000 to a local Hong Kong charity.
