Blue Pencil was founded in Bristol, England in 2002 by former city solicitor, Liam Mooney. Blue Pencil was named after the “Blue Pencil Test”, which puts restrictive covenants in contracts to the sword under law. Historically, if covenants were deemed unreasonable, such clauses would be struck out from a contract by a judge using a Blue Pencil. Restrictive covenants in employment contracts are very apt in the world of recruitment and hence the name was chosen.

Since 2002 we have grown significantly. The company has grown without any start-up capital and using unique recruitment techniques. Most of our consultants have started with no experience and have been trained to follow our unique recruitment methods, techniques and benefitting from over 18 years of recruitment experience. We have subsequently grown our presence, helping to build our brand and its market positioning as a premier global legal recruitment firm.
