The Legal Advantage recruits partners (equity and
non-equity), counsel members, associates, entire
practice groups, and government lawyers for national, international, and regional
law firms throughout the United States. Our extensive
contacts and targeted recruiting style enable us to
identify successful attorneys, many of whom have significant
portable business, who seek to pursue excellent opportunities
at new law firms.
Our law firm recruiting is unique in several important
- We often receive assignments
directly from managing partners and practice group heads. This allows us to have in-depth
knowledge of the firm’s practice, culture
and needs, which in turn gives us the credibility
to attract excellent but busy attorneys who might
otherwise not respond to recruiting calls.
- We are not a “resume mill” and do
not bombard our clients with countless resumes hoping
something will “stick.” Rather, we do
an exhaustive search for prospects who fit the particular
profile and then submit only those candidates who
are qualified and genuinely interested in the position.
We appreciate that our reputation is at stake with
every assignment and we strive to make your recruiting
job easier, not more difficult.
- We understand that the “best and brightest”
attorneys often are not looking for a new position
and need to be actively recruited. Therefore, we
do not advertise positions on our website or elsewhere.
Instead, we employ targeted and discreet recruiting
strategies with each assignment to find the right
lawyer or practice group for our client’s
- As attorneys with both AmLaw 100 and in-house
counsel experience, we are able to accurately evaluate
the relevant qualifications and experience of each
- Our services do not end once an offer is made.
At the client’s request, we help facilitate
any negotiations over the compensation package and
strive to ensure that both the firm and candidate
are pleased with the end result.
This approach has been a recipe for success, as evidenced
by our successful track
record and the positive
feedback received from our clients. If you are
a managing partner looking to build an office or practice
group through lateral acquisitions, or a director
of recruitment seeking to fill particular openings,
we can be a valuable advocate and ally to help you
achieve your goals. Please contact
