Adam heads up the Commerce & Industry desk at Pure Search.


Acutely aware of the different rules, regulations and challenges that apply to these markets, Adam understands each sector's complexities and specific requirements. This knowledge allows him to provide insightful and current advice on how best to source and attract candidates with the right skill sets for each business.

Adam goes beyond the technical skills that individuals possess. He understands the importance of lawyers immersing themselves in the business they represent and the need for them to forge close relationships with their commercial colleagues. 

With a constantly changing landscape, legal departments must remain agile and responsive. Central to this business partnering and adaptability are the ‘softer’ skills, and Adam prides himself on his ability to delve deeper and appraise and assess each candidate in this regard. 

This approach has yielded significant success, and Adam partners with a range of clients, from start-ups and scale-ups to well-established domestic and global companies. Whether partnering in a search for a Junior Commercial Lawyer or engaging in a retained executive search for General Counsel, he always looks to maintain the imperative elements to ensure a successful outcome.
