Championing equality of opportunity in Big Law careers

Counselpath empowers solicitors. Our platform is open to all and promotes transparency, levelling the playing field and leading to more informed career choices.



Four guiding principles for what we do


We align our incentives with our community. We tell it like it is. We do not ‘sell’ roles to candidates – we help them make their own choices.


We value the time and attention of our community. We selectively curate opportunities most relevant for our audience.


We protect confidentiality of candidates and employers alike. We adhere to highest standards of privacy and data protection.


This is not about us. Our mission is to serve the community. We believe our success results from the success of our members.


The story behind Counselpath

Michal Zdzieborski

Founder & CEO

The story of Counselpath originates from my own career journey. Having read Law and Modern Languages at UCL, I spent 10 years in consulting (McKinsey, Bain) and venture building (Entrepreneur First, Bloomberg Ventures). My experience as a candidate made me realise the fallacies of traditional recruitment systems in professional services. Counselpath was created to empower the candidates by giving them the transparent and fair recruitment experience they deserve. I hope it uncovers new opportunities and takes you places!
