Relocating For Your New Legal Job
A skilful lawyer’s career these days is likely to involve one or more relocations, often between very different societies, with different housing costs, schooling practices and so on. Relocating is a stressful event, and we want our candidates to be settling in and becoming productive members of their new teams as soon as possible. So we pay particular attention to assisting lawyers with local information and guidance on housing, schools and a host of other issues. When recruiting for law firms, businesses or government we are adept at assisting lawyers with a range of skillsets. We recruit lawyers, partners with portable practices and even entire teams, including firm mergers of 15+ partners. We take the time to understand your firm and it’s culture; our purpose is to create legal recruitment solutions precisely targeted to the characteristics of each vacancy. The advantages of this continuing ground-work are apparent in our results – shorter short lists, better matches, and a record of successful placements of which we are justifiably proud.
