How Much Time Does It Take to Land a Job in an Amlaw 100 Firm?

Senior Managing Director-East Coast, BCG Attorney Search
I am a third year associate, currently working at a large, AmLaw 100 firm in New York. Things are going well for me in my current position, but I would like to move to another firm in New York that is comparable in size and prestige, but that offers more mentorship and career development opportunities for young associates. How long should I expect my job search to take from the time that I begin searching to the time when I am ultimately placed at another law firm?
