Innovative approach backed by heritage and history

Bent Blackstone & Associates’ vision is to disrupt the traditional recruitment industry and deliver higher quality candidates for our clients.

Our name is inspired by the remarkable legal minds of Ellis Bent and William Blackstone. Both were pioneers in shaping the Western legal system – Bent, as deputy judge advocate in the colony of New South Wales, and English jurist Blackstone, author of the Commentaries on the Laws of England.

Like our namesakes, Bent Blackstone & Associates are trailblazers, in the legal recruitment and search industry. Our confidence in matching exceptional candidates with the right role, every time, sets us apart from our competitors.

We’re exclusively focused on sourcing solicitors and lawyers for private practice, making us uniquely placed to deliver targeted, quality talent. Our experienced recruiters are capable of finding the best solicitors, lawyers, associates, senior associates, special counsels, principals and partners Australia has to offer.

Our team of head hunters target the right person for every project – if we don’t have the perfect candidate on our books, we’ll find them and present them to you. 

Because we’re so confident in our methods, we offer the longest replacement guarantees and lowest fees in Australia. 

Bent and Blackstone both left their mark on the legal sector – and we intend to do the same.


Inspired by the remarkable legal minds of Ellis Bent and William Blackstone, we intend to leave our mark on the legal sector through quality recruitment and search services.
