Legal Jobs


J.P Morgan once said "I don't want a lawyer to tell me what I cannot do. I hire them to tell me how to do what I want to do".

Lawyers in Ireland today face even more challenges than the notoriously demanding financier and philanthropist. The legal profession offers an exciting range of careers that could include overseeing patents for a global pharmaceutical company, preparing complex litigation trials, drawing up defense strategies for criminal cases or recommending new environmental legislation for government policy makers. Regardless of the career path chosen, the market for legal professionals in Ireland has never been as competitive with growth in Private Practice, In-House and the ever increasing need for newly qualified lawyers. Brightwater's Legal team comprises a mixture of qualified lawyers, law graduates and highly experienced recruitment consultants.
