Who we are

Clermont is a market-leading legal search & recruitment specialist for the digital economy.

Since 2009, we have been connecting the brightest legal talent across the digital economy with leading global law firms and in-house legal teams.

Clermont’s success comes from its extensive global contact network, long-lasting relationships and a positive brand reputation that has been built on our deep expertise and knowledge of the global legal & digital economy landscape.

We’re proud to work with many leading international law firms and some of the world’s most exciting brands.

We combine traditional search expertise and methodologies with the newest RecTech and digital tooling solutions, which enable us to provide market-leading search services to our clients that are strategic, highly efficient and ensure success.

The legal & regulatory landscape across the digital economy continues to evolve at pace, so we immerse ourselves in the very fabric of the industry and build on our knowledge by attending industry conferences & networking events. We also host a podcast series and contribute thought-leadership.

These initiatives further enhance our expertise, global network and brand reputation across the legal and digital economies.



Anthony Brown

Anthony co-founded Clermont in 2009 – at a time when privacy, data protection and cybersecurity were relatively niche sectors.

With 20+ years’ experience in legal search & recruitment and a career that began when lawyers were only just beginning to specialise in technology, Anthony has continued to evolve with the incredible legal talent he represents and has now added expertise in blockchain/web3, crypto & digital assets to his specialism in privacy, data protection and cybersecurity.

Clermont was born as a response to law firms and businesses struggling to identify and attract quality candidates across these niche areas, and it is a need that has grown exponentially since Anthony co-founded Clermont.

Anthony is a respected figure among the executive search and legal industry and is a regular attendee and contributor at major global industry events. He also hosts a podcast called Pad-cast that enables thought-leaders in privacy & data to tell their stories and provides valuable insight into latest industry developments.

Outside of his recruitment work, Anthony is an avid football fan – a lifelong supporter of Liverpool FC – and a running enthusiast who has completed several marathons.

A huge music fan, he is a regular attender of music events, gigs and has been to Glastonbury Festival more than once!

He is also proud father to a son & daughter


Sarah Steven

Sarah co-founded Clermont with Anthony in 2009, bringing a wealth of executive search experience from the legal and financial services sectors.

Prior to co-founding Clermont, Sarah worked in the hr/legal team of the world’s largest insurance and reinsurance brokers for over 10 years. This in-house experience enabled Sarah to bring fantastic insights and knowledge with her to Clermont and has helped us to really understand our clients, and develop market-leading services.

Sarah has overall responsibility for Clermont’s operational approach; helping us to source, train and retain the best talent in the search & recruitment industry. Her high-energy approach to work & life is infectious and she has done so much to build a positive and dynamic culture at Clermont.

Outside of work, Sarah is an avid gym-goer and was once a national gymnastics and trampolining champion! Most weekends she can be found on the side-lines supporting her children in various sporting events!
