Fast Track 100

Career Legal provides temporary and permanent staff to many of London’s top law firms. It appears in the Fast Track 100 league table for the second consecutive year, achieving sales growth of 72% a year, from £1.6m in 1996 to £8.3m in 1999. Michael Swaby, managing director, founded the company in 1991 with little more than a couple of phones and some plastic chairs. He started out supplying secretaries to law firms before expanding to legal finance staff and, finally, qualified lawyers. Today, Swaby says Career Legal retains a relaxed environment, something that has contributed to sustained business growth and profitability. Swaby claims that his company has never lost a client.
