Buchanan Law Opens in Miami

Specialist international legal recruitment firm expands in US

Specialist international legal recruitment firm Buchanan Law is pleased to announce the launch of its Miami office. Buchanan Law specialises in placing top legal talent in large full-service firms, smaller specialist firms, and in-house at major corporates. These appointments cover the whole talent pipeline, from newly qualified lawyers to seasoned partners at the top of their field.

The London-based firm’s second office will be headed by Thomas Hanlon, director and head of Buchanan’s US practice. CEO James Baker is also relocating to Miami as the firm sees significant growth across the US market. Thomas and James are joined by senior consultants Ciro Di Stefano and Emily Smith, with the firm’s 2024 extensive hiring plans for US based associates being a priority following the launch.

Miami is fast becoming the principal hub for the US east coast legal industry, with many of the largest firms expanding into the city over recent years. Where Miami was once primarily a go-between for US and Latin America deals, the technology and private equity sectors have since boomed, attracting a flood of capital.

Commenting on the launch, Thomas Hanlon explained: “The global legal talent market is more competitive than it has ever been, and we are seeing firms completely reimagine the hiring process. Being ahead of the curve and having our finger on the pulse is what allows us to connect our clients with the very best talent. Our Miami office will allow us to continue to service these clients across the US – the largest legal market in the world, and one that shows no signs of slowing down.”

James Baker added: “This is a significant milestone for Buchanan Law. While we have been in the US market now for many years, and have built excellent relationships with top firms, the launch of our Miami office solidifies our commitment to providing the very best in legal recruitment solutions at an international level.”

Buchanan Law’s new office is based in the Sabadell Financial Center in the heart of Brickell, a commercial hub in Miami and one of the largest financial districts in the United States.
