Our story

HIA Legal joined the HIA Group in 2016 and was founded by Victoria du Caurroy Tribe, a former senior associate at Allen & Overy and her brother Matthew Tribe and director David Houlihan, both co founders of the HIA Group. 

Matthew comments: "We've been looking to create a legal offering to our business for many years, but needed the talent base to drive it forward. Victoria and her team fits this criteria, offering many years of experience in the legal sector and the ability to have an in depth understanding of our candidate and client requirements."

The combination of legal and recruitment experience gives HIA Legal an edge from our competitors, bringing together a team of both lawyers and recruiters with the sole focus of offering a comprehensive 360 recruitment support to the legal profession.

Victoria says: "We understand the dynamics of legal teams and what specific roles entail and have a thorough understanding of the need for a discreet, professional service based on delivery and integrity."

Supporting this is a powerhouse management team who have over 50 years of combined legal and recruitment experience and are uniquely placed to understand the needs of lawyers, legal support staff and legal employers. This ensures that the right candidates are consistently put forward for the right roles.

Our core business is working with lawyers and legal teams and focussing on both private practice and in-house legal roles, from newly qualified to partner level. We provide a bespoke service, recognising that each lawyer and each legal team are different, with specific requirements and drivers.
