Whilst the majority of the business is for permanent placements, the temp business forms approximately 25% of Chadwick Nott’s current business.

Chadwick Nott generally supply on standard terms and conditions.

International Work:

We occasionally place qualified solicitors into permanent positions in the Channel Islands, Middle East and Asia.

Occasionally, we receive international document review requests where we charge a margin only fee or retainer (the client pays the candidates directly as limited company contractors or self-employed and invoice the client directly). We currently receive about 3 projects per year currently (totaling about 30 people) but this may increase.
