Our Key Services

A Warm Welcome To Charles Park

Charles Park Search and Selection (CPSS) is one of the leading, international legal headhunting firms in the market.

In the earlier years we developed a specialist international private client offering and CPSS is now regarded as the main go to business for high end partner, team and M&A work in this market. The quality of the clients reflect the work that we do, which is covered more in other parts of this website.

In addition to private client legal recruitment services, CPSS has invested into its business legal recruitment services offering and now has a niche, high end team that works on international corporate/commercial projects for clients in the UK, international and offshore markets. We are client driven and cover many jurisdictions outside the UK, with a particular focus on the Middle East region.

We hope that this website gives you enough information on CPSS and what we do. Like many of our legal clients, we bespoke our services to suit our client’s needs.

If you are a new potential client or candidate, please take some time to look through this website to see, in more detail, what we do and to read some of our testimonials. If you have any questions, then please do not hesitate to contact us in the strictest confidence on +44(0)1252 844133.
