About Perconex - The Company


In 2005, Dr. Olaf Schmitt left his law firm to set-up PERCONEX as the first legal recruitment business in Frankfurt providing the “lawyer-on-demand” concept, Legal Temps. The idea was to develop a large pool of project lawyers and hire them out on an interim basis to law firms and corporate legal departments. PERCONEX can strengthen your team on both short-term and long-term projects on a fully flexible basis.  With carefully selected temporary lawyers, legal firms and companies can react quickly and efficiently with minimum cost.

PERCONEX also uses its extensive network of 5,000 legal professionals for clients who wish to recruit lawyers, whether associates or partners, on a permanent basis. This is our Legal Perm division. PERCONEX recruits lawyers of all seniority levels for law firms and in-house legal departments. Industry knowledge and a Germany-wide network enable us to quickly and effectively identify and contact appropriate candidates. We have a very large database of candidates looking to change their position as well as significant expertise in the legal personal market in general.

The third leg of PERCONEX is

Legal Process Outsourcing, which puts your work in our hands. PERCONEX can completely take over your legal projects: especially the provision of legal groundwork like research, due diligence. the organisation of data rooms and contract management. 

PERCONEX’s clients are leading law firms and the legal departments of large and medium-sized companies only provides the required staff, but can also provide the required office space and equipment.
