San Francisco is a fabulous place to live. If the city's rolling hills, sweeping views, and painted Victorians aren't beautiful enough for you, head to Tahoe, Yosemite, or Big Sur, each less than a half-day's drive away. The Bay City's proximity to the Napa and Sonoma Valleys fuels a cultish devotion to fine food and wine. And a long tradition of live-and-let-live tolerance has produced a diverse, never-dull citizenry. Worldly yet down-to-earth, liberal-minded but hardworking, San Franciscans take pride in their city's reputation as the American Paris. Hell, some call Paris the French San Francisco.


The landmark Fillmore is the place where Jimi Hendrix and Jefferson Airplane made history; today you can catch acts from Alanis Morissette to Musiq. The sleek San Francisco Museum of Modern Art building, opened in 1995, is a work of art in its own right-never mind that the museum showcases leading Left Coast talent. Of the city's many world-famous tourist attractions, locals place spooky, foggy Alcatraz at the top of the list. The hugely popular Bay to Breakers 12k run, held each May, draws an only-in-San Francisco mix of world-class athletes, everyday fitness enthusiasts, drag queens, and nudists.


Edgy, postindustrial neighborhoods like SoMa ("south of Market") are cool. If you'd rather live in a classic San Franciscan Victorian, check out Noe Valley. The Marina is a preferred mating area for young urban professionals (locals call them Gap Republicans). After you've made managing partner, head for Pacific Heights-the storied hilltop mansion district with the drop-dead views of San Francisco Bay.


Union Square is SF's answer to New York's SoHo or Chicago's Miracle Mile. In addition to the major department stores (Neiman Marcus, Tiffany, Saks), you'll find Armani, Gucci, and other high-end boutiques. Women of a certain tax bracket flock to Heather on upper Fillmore for upscale fashions from lesser-known designers. Rolo Garage, in SoMa, sells of-the-moment designer clothes at a discount. Still fond of batik? Cruise the neo-hippie shops in the Haight-Ashbury.


After work, meet for a martini at Bix, a '30s-style supper club, or go celebrity spotting (Francis Ford Coppola) at the charming, elegant Tosca Cafe. If you're in the Castro, stop in at the Cafe, a casual bar and lounge with pool tables and a dance floor that draws a fabulous crowd of gays and lipstick lesbians. Club Six attracts a mixed, fun-loving set that bobs along to a deep-house soundtrack. And it doesn't get any cooler (Ha!) than Sno-Drift, a club built to look like a ski lodge.


After decades of dazzling lawyers and other professionals with its creative seafood specialties, Aqua is still the gold-card standard for power lunches. The Slanted Door has drawn gushing reviews for its haute Vietnamese cuisine. Berkeley's Chez Panisse is where legendary chef Alice Waters launched the ultra-fresh local seasonal ingredients movement; if you even pretend to be a foodie, make the pilgrimage.

San Francisco (SF) Overview

San Francisco, also known as the City by the Bay, is a melting pot of diversity and culture. Home to a population of over 825,000 residents, it is also a tourist attraction for nearly 16 million visitors each year. San Francisco is also home to many top law firms and legal organizations, and is home to thousands of members of the legal community. With many non-profit and civil rights organizations located in and around San Francisco, there are many unique legal opportunities there. This attracts diverse attorneys and other legal professionals to the area.

We want to be able to place the best attorney with the best law firm possible to ensure lifelong success for both.

We Have a Strict Code of Conduct

We adhere to a strict Code of Conduct with our attorney candidates and each law firm that we work with. Our confidentiality is not surpassed by any other recruiting firms in the nation. We always keep everything strictly confidential and will never share information about an attorney with any law firm that the attorney has not given their direct approval to share with. We are also able to ensure each law firm that we will know their work ethics and hiring needs explicitly, so that we can match the perfect attorney candidate with them.

We have very creative recruiters who will walk step-by-step with each attorney candidate to ensure that they have the knowledge necessary to succeed with their direct presentation to the law firm. We always follow up with both the attorney candidate and the law firm after the interview process. We have built very solid long-term relationships with the law firms and the attorneys that we work with and we take pride in knowing that we have the contacts necessary to be able to place each attorney candidate with the law firm that will be the absolute best fit for both.

We provide service to top-tier law firms and we always ensure that the attorney candidate is a perfect match for the law firm. We provide extremely thorough screening, as well as personal knowledge of each attorney candidate and we are always professional and responsive to each attorney candidate and law firm we work with. We are the leading legal market experts and we take pride in how we handle each client's needs to maximize their success as individuals and firms.

I worked primarily with one recruiter, and she was very responsive, I felt like she always had her eyes on a potential opportunity for me, always followed up, and was very engaged in my job search. Working with BCG took some of the burden off of me in terms of looking for potential opportunities, and a lot of the more logistical and practical aspects of it were a lot easier. It was nice to have someone to speak to and help with some of the stress that goes along with finding a new job.The recruiter I was working with in particular was very helpful, very engaged, and I felt like she really valued my goal of finding a new job.I would absolutely recommend BCG, especially the particular recruiter that I used.


Christina. My rep was great. She listened to what I wanted. She worked really hard and found me what she could and she was really encouraging and gave good advice. And was also really understood that I might not want to go with that particular firm. She was pretty supportive. I was really busy at the time I was looking so she was really helpful in handling if I couldn't email back the firm or stuff she took care of all those things for me and that was really helpful.


My recruiter has been more thorough than any other recruiter I've spoken to. I really appreciate the questions she has asked me, and the improvements she made to my resume.
