It's Monday morning at 9 am. You're sitting at your desk, already buried in files and briefs when the phone rings. "Hi" greets the smooth voice at the other end of the line, I'm J. Doe of XYZ legal search. Our client is seeking a lawyer with experience in your area and I was wondering if you might be able to assist in our search?"

Everything you need to know about working with legal recruiters

Congratulations and welcome to being desirable- you've just been headhunted!

Headhunting in the legal profession has become big business as a growing number of legal employers are turning to outside recruiting specialists to reduce their risk in hiring and, ultimately, to find "just the right person".

With the rise of large national and international firms, increased lateral movement and steady growth in corporate legal opportunities, headhunters have thrived. Successful headhunters maintain a broad network of contacts; carry choice, often unique positions and offer real time market intelligence and feedback. If you're serious about your career, this is one resource you can't afford to overlook!
