Legal recruiter secures IP heavyweight hire

Specialist legal recruitment consultancy, Cogence Search, is delighted to announce the appointment of Peter Rouse, founder of international IP firm Rouse and former chief executive of barristers chambers 7 Bedford Row, as a Senior Legal Recruitment Consultant.

Peter established the Rouse organisation - now an international consultancy with 13 offices worldwide - in 1990. Since leaving in 2000, in addition to his time as chief executive of 7 Bedford Row, he has engaged in various business and consulting roles including Director of Bar Select Limited, providers of an online barrister search and booking service for professional and lay clients and Case Record, a secure online venue for confidential correspondence between professionals and their clients.

Commenting on the appointment, Mark Husband, Executive Director of Cogence Search said: Peter is an exceptional authority in his field, however it is his unique personal approach to service delivery that really makes him stand out from the crowd - and it is this that has defined the success of his career to date. It is also a skill that precisely matches the knowledge-based approach adopted at Cogence Search. We are thrilled and excited to welcome him to the team.

Peter added: When building my own firm at home and internationally, recruitment was of paramount importance to achieving my vision for the business. This experience has shown me what a senior lawyer can bring to legal recruitment: creativity, innovation and a mature understanding of the art of relationships, combined with partner level experience of both the practice of law and the business of legal services.

I see an opportunity to bring all I have learned during my career into service for the benefit of clients and candidates alike who can have confidence that I am able to listen to and genuinely understand their aspirations as well as the context in which they are to be realised.
