Recruiting for Corporate Law Departments -----
If you are a Corporate Counsel or Human Resource Talent Specialist seeking an addition to the legal team, contact us in confidence. We will be pleased to learn about your company, the goals for the department, the unique challenges your industry may face and the expertise and skills required from the individual you wish to hire. NWLS' clients appreciate the time saved in candidate vetting and critical skill assessment, in managing the hiring process expectations (on both sides), in discharging candidates not selected with dignity, and in providing a manageable list of company culture-matched, finalist candidates. NWLS vows to be professional, mindful of valuable management time and to be a value-added vendor.
Whether you want to fill a General Counsel role or are seeking the first attorney the company has ever hired, we are your premier source. We are skilled at assessing the basics of legal skill and education, but also business acumen, leadership, people management and interpersonal skills. Not every lawyer can be a successful in-house corporation fit. This is something we know from more than 20 years of experience in placing them.
To Corporations and Select Law Firms We Offer
To Attorneys Whom we Select as Candidates We Offer
Please note: The attorney candidates we most often are called upon to recruit are attorneys with JD degrees from the top 30 nationally ranked law schools, who graduated in at least the top 25%, but preferably at or near the top of their classes, and with a progressive employment record at top-tier law firms or corporations.
Please note: We handle the lateral placement of attorneys only. We unfortunately cannot assist current law students or new graduates who have less than three full years of law practice experience after graduation from law school.
