Meet the Team

Thornton Legal was founded by Nick Tappin and Joe Rees. Between us, we have over 20 years combined experience in recruitment and the law. Our business is now one of the most respected legal recruiters in the region.

Before becoming a legal recruiter in 2013 Nick worked in private practice as a Solicitor for over 10 years. Joe has been a professional services recruiter since leaving University in 2001 with the most recent years specialising in the legal sector across the North West and Yorkshire.

Jade is our Marketing and Recruitment Administrator looking after all things marketing and social media related as well as supporting the Directors from an administration perspective. She has over 2 years’ experience in marketing at a law firm along with a degree in Marketing with Advertising.

Alex graduated from Liverpool John Moores University in 2017 and quickly secured a role within sales. He joined us in March 2018 and is a recruitment consultant focusing on the non qualified legal market. 

We are confident in the quality of service we offer our clients and candidates. But don’t just take our word for it, have a look at our client and candidate testimonials that we are always proud to receive.
