Jamie Newbold is a well-known and highly respected name in the global legal recruitment industry. Prior to launching Newbold Search, he was a Partner at Taylor Root. Over his twenty year career in legal recruitment, Jamie forged a reputation recruiting lawyers into the offshore jurisdictions, the Middle East and Asia as well as placing partners in London. Jamie was responsible for opening Taylor Root’s Dubai office in 2007 and also their Singapore office in 2010. He has a wealth of experience of placing lawyers around the world that is unmatched. Many of his placements are now leaders of their respective firms.
Jamie was previously a commercial litigation solicitor at Norton Rose and Theodore (Addleshaw) Goddard.
Jamie is extremely well connected with the people that matter, knowledgeable about the offshore markets through years of experience and, above all, personable.
Jamie was relentless in his pursuit to find and close the right opportunity for me. He has a strong understanding of the market, great relationships and was extremely supportive throughout the process.
Jamie helped recruit two of our most recent Counsel. He shortlisted some excellent candidates and took time to listen to our requirements and understand the needs of the organisation. Jamie is easy to deal with, honest and straightforward and I would recommend him to anyone wanting to make a move within the legal world in the Middle East. We will certainly use Jamie again.
I have known and worked with Jamie for over 20 years – he has unrivalled market knowledge, is highly professional and has consistently produced excellent results.
Jamie has been a heavyweight presence in the offshore recruitment market over the past twenty years and has been instrumental in shaping the evolution of the offshore recruitment market. Jamie’s keen insights into the offshore market make him a valuable resource to prospective candidates and law firm stakeholders alike.
Jamie was a great resource for me whilst I was searching for a role that would be a good fit. Looking for suitable employment during the pandemic has been difficult but Jamie was great at bringing excellent international opportunities to my attention and helping me through the interview process for various roles. Thank you Jamie for being patient and for truly listening to what I wanted as we worked together to find a role that aligned with my career goals and aspirations!
I recently had the pleasure to deal with Jamie, who helped me with my move to Dubai. He is one of the most honest, trustworthy, and experienced recruiters out there (which is not something easy to get by in the recruitment business). He also has a deep knowledge of the legal market in the Middle East and is therefore very highly recommended.
