By finding your right fit.

Look around you. Partners and Associates are changing firms in record numbers. There is a better out there, and a better for you.

As you may know, the months between January and June are typically the ideal time for making a lateral firm move.


First, firms usually have developed a strategic plan which they put in place in December for next year. This means a budget is allocated for hiring new Partners and Associates which becomes effective January 1st.

Second, after Partners and Associates start receiving their bonuses at the end of the year and into the first two months of the New Year they leave their firm. Noone wants to leave money on the table, right?

This churn creates a void at the firm which usually needs to be filled by bringing in more Partners and Associates.

As the CEO of Harlan Scott Legal Search, a national legal recruiting firm named one of the most influential legal recruiters in 2014, I welcome the opportunity to speak with you regarding your career goals and see what sort of insights or assistance I may provide you.

With the holidays coming, it might be an ideal time to meet or schedule a call.
