Chris KempManaging Director
Chris has been recruiting lawyers, paralegals and support staff for over 30 years.
His initial career was in recruitment for the offshore engineering industry. Chris then became involved in the legal sector in 1987 when he was asked by a Magic Circle law firm to provide a team of technical consultants to process evidence in a multi-million-pound oil & gas industry litigation case.
That assignment quickly progressed to ongoing requirements for flexible teams of temporary staff with legal qualifications. Whilst the relationship with that first law firm client has endured for many years, the business soon expanded to work with a number of other leading City law firms, almost exclusively via word-of-mouth recommendation.
Chris now concentrates on business development, commercial oversight and special projects for Jones Kemp. In his spare time he indulges his passions for ski-ing and motor racing.
