A former City lawyer is the latest high profile name to join fast-growing legal recruitment specialist Bygott Biggs.

Kelly Barker has over a decade’s experience as a legal recruiter and is renowned for her extensive market knowledge.

Having initially qualified as a solicitor in 2001, Kelly has been recruiting lawyers since 2005. She worked in the City for a number of years but is now based in the Midlands and has spent much of her career moving lawyers to and from London and the regions.

Kelly said: “Bygott Biggs has been recruiting longer and more consistently than any other recruiter in the region. Its knowledge of the market and connections mean it has access to the best legal talent, so this is a great move for me.”

Jane Biggs, Managing Director of Bygott Biggs, said:”Kelly has a reputation among her clients and candidates for her discretion as well as well as being straightforward and easy to deal with.

“We’re extremely happy to have her on board at Bygott Biggs as she helps us grow our business even further.”

Away from the office, Kelly tries her best to juggle the competing interests of her three young children and her horses – usually with only mixed success.
