Ellie Gair Dummer


Head of Recruitment

I have worked within recruitment for 18 years, starting off in London working for retailers such as Zara and Gap as well as The British Museum, National History Museum and the V&A before joining a specialist fashion agency focusing on recruitment for brands such as Harrods, Selfridges, Jaeger and Cordings. I then spent 10 years at a PR & Communications recruiter in Covent Garden working to senior board level as well as setting up and running the agency's social media channels and creating the website content. For the past 3 years I have been self-employed and joined Legal Studio in October 2018 to help with the growth of the Practice through recruitment and marketing.

I came to Legal Studio having met Matt and Ian for a coffee. I immediately bought into them both as well as the concept of Legal Studio. For an industry synonomous with long hours, pressure and rigidity, it's great that Matt had the instinct to create a business that is financially lucrative to the solicitors who align themselves with the Legal Studio brand and that proves you can provide a first class service to clients whilst still working flexibly and being location independent. 

Outside of working life I spend time with my family, cook for friends and go to gigs. I love music and have collected vinyl since I was 8, I am really into photography and design and when injury-free I run, do reformer pilates and have regular PT sessions. I was lucky enough to have grown up on the North East coast so I spend as much time as I can on a beach and near the sea, in any weather.
