Hiring a lawyer to work in-house with your organization is a key decision that deserves the expertise of specialized legal search consultants. Lawyers are a special breed – we know, because we are lawyers. We have unique insight into the qualities required for a lawyer to thrive in-house. Beyond having the appropriate skillset, an in-house lawyer needs a strategic business perspective. That’s not taught in law school or cultivated in law firms. The person you hire must be compatible with your team and must understand how to best support the long-term vision of your organization. We know how to ask the right questions to determine if a lawyer is a good fit. In fact, we often have an existing relationship with the candidates we present. This gives us an invaluable advantage in advising you on the person behind the resume – before that person joins your team.
Whether you are hiring a new General Counsel, your first in-house lawyer, or are filling out your legal team, the consultants at Hunter West are with you every step of the way. We will take the time to fully understand your organization and advise you on the skillset that will best meet your needs. We provide market information on compensation and other factors influencing the movement of candidates. The candidates we present will be those we know are the right fit.
We are as excited as you are about hiring your in-house lawyer. Contact us to find out more.
