In this challenging economy, lateral associate hiring is down overall while there is an active market for lateral partners with portable books of business. Partners have different needs and objectives than their associate job-hunting counterparts.

A job search can be stressful but the right recruiter can alleviate many concerns throughout the process. Over the past decade, many partners have come to BCG Attorney Search looking for a new home for their practice and we have been happy to work with them.
