Frasia Wright Associates is celebrating 25 years’ of … recruiting Lawyer’s, building trust!
Frasia Wright, Managing Director, has been involved in legal recruitment since 1988. She has worked in both New York and London and is today recognised as having the longest track record in Scottish legal recruitment, where her name is synonymous with professional integrity and confidentiality. After working within different recruitment agencies, Frasia saw a gap in the legal recruitment market for realistic recruitment advice. From there Frasia Wright Associates was created and it is with great pride that 25 years later, our approach and values have cemented our place in the legal recruitment industry, as Scotland’s leading legal recruitment agency exclusively placing lawyers.
“I set up Frasia Wright Associates in December 1995, working from home and to give me more flexibility with my two sons, who were 1 and 2 at the time. Who knew that would be the norm now and I am thrilled that all the team here are supported to manage their work and personal commitments too!
So, 25 years ago I felt there was a gap in the legal agency market for realistic recruitment advice that was commercially aware and ethical and I was passionate about creating a business that was trusted by our people, our candidates and our clients. And that is still what we are about today. It’s been a rollercoaster with many challenges and opportunities along the way and as we move through uncertain times, we know there will be twists and turns, but with a great team, we will take them together.” – Frasia Wright, Managing Director

From starting out as NQ lawyers, assisting on their chosen career path, to returning to us as recruiting partners, now responsible for the direction of the new generation of lawyers. It has been a challenge to continually meet the needs of the changing face of the legal profession and we have loved every minute of it. Like us, our clients have also been on a journey of business development, through mergers and demergers, expansion into new areas of business across the UK and overseas, recessions and navigating through a year none of us will forget with COVID 19, but we will get through this! Here is what some of our clients had to say about us.
Our business is spread across Scotland, so instead of organising a formal event to mark this anniversary we have decided to donate to LawCare. A charity we are proud to support in their mission to support legal professionals experiencing mental health and well-being issues.
We hope all our clients and candidates have a great Jubilee weekend. Our offices will be closed from Thursday 2nd June and will re-open Monday 6th June.
It is so important that individuals speak out about and look after their mental health. It is great to see more people freely talking about it, and we are proud to support LawCare on their mission to provide information and support to anyone in the legal community experiencing mental health and wellbeing problems. This year’s […]
