Our Legal Recruiters/Agents take a different approach to legal recruiting, whereas in the placement process when conducting a job search, they represent the interest of the Agents/Advisors and Attorneys, not the Law Firm.
Our Legal Recruiters/Agents represent an IP Professional in a way that they cannot represent themselves. They vet the entire marketplace, reaching out to a power base of law firms, without disclosing the person’s identity. The extensive shopping of the IP marketplace many times will manifest multiple opportunities. This enables our Legal Recruiters/Agents to leverage law firms on behalf of the person they are representing, creating an above market opportunity. Our Legal Recruiters/Agents negotiate relentlessly on behalf of the IP Professional they represent, seeking exactly what the person is looking for in a lateral move.
Our Network Legal Recruiters/Agents only work on opportunities where the law firm must be open to an above market package in terms of compensation, while providing an excellent work life balance. Nothing in terms of negotiating on behalf of the Agent/Advisor they are representing is off the table!
