What's EA International?

EA International helps lawyers around the world find new roles at Magic Circle and US firms over 30 different countries world wide. We let EA on the platform because we believe people looking to work overseas still need help and guidance, and the EA team are there to provide it.

Working for the leading global players like Allen & Overy, Clifford Chance, Linklaters, Skadden and Milbank for the last 15 years, EA has a long history of helping lawyers find their dream role around the world. Mike & Maciek still take an active role helping individual lawyers looking to move to leading firms and apply their direct and honest approach to the reality of doing so.

As a business EA differs to Beyond Billables as it’s focus is solely on people who want to move internationally to a leading firm with the help of an outstanding consultant.
