Navigating the Associate Years: Consultants and Market Experts
Associate years lay the groundwork for an entire legal career, and we know how important it is to invest in them wisely. Our recruiters have prior careers as practicing attorneys at some of the nation's finest law firms. We draw on our backgrounds, as well as our strong recruiting experience and deep network of contacts, to provide the most knowledgeable advice and assistance to our lateral associate candidates and law firm clients seeking experienced associates. We also understand the sensitivity of a lateral move, and it is our goal to ensure the most professional, ethical and confidential search process possible.
Client Relationships: Through regular meetings, candid conversations and earned trust with firm leadership, we gain a thorough understanding of client needs, structures, expectations and priorities. This makes us well equipped to target and place the ideal associate candidates, who will both support our clients' current needs and may also serve as future firm leadership.
Candidate Relationships: For our associate candidates, we invest as much time as possible to learn each individual's background and career objectives, as well as any obstacles that might be limiting growth or satisfaction in a current role. We can also provide additional context to help candidates think through longer term career implications of various paths. With this knowledge base, we can help identify the best firm opportunities for optimal cultural fit, growth and alignment of the candidate's goals.
