He moved into legal search six years ago and has since been involved in some of the most high-profile partner moves in the legal market.

He undertakes contingent and retained partner searches, partner representation, team moves and works for top UK, international and US based firms.
Vaughan is married. He luckily gets to spend part of his year living in Zurich, Switzerland, as a result of his wife’s job in pharma consulting - ensuring he is able get a fair dose of the ski season whilst she is working!
