We also are routinely approached by Partners who are interested in making a lateral move. Our knowledge of the market, commitment to protecting confidentiality, unsurpassed ability to present a candidate in a way that he cannot even do on his own, ability to streamline the process, and penchant for negotiating a deal that not only is rewarding but is also protective, is the reason why Partners rave about working with us.
We excel at law firm M&A and have consummated three law firm mergers, with several others that are winding their way through the process. We do not simply “facilitate” such law firm combinations and do not only introduce existing client law firms to each other. Rather, we lead the effort in identifying targets, contact managing partners, guide the due diligence process, and help in the negotiation of the final deal. We have done this work throughout the country for firms that are looking to expand by merger and others that have decided the time is right to come together with a larger firm. We have a passion for this work, which derives from our Founder’s experience in leading his own company, while he was a General Counsel, through a merger with a Fortune 50 company.
We are uniquely qualified to handle in house searches, as our Founder was a General Counsel, the Co-Chair of the Association of Corporate Counsel Association’s Law Department Management Committee, and was the Head of the In House Division for the country’s largest national legal recruiting firm. We have placed Generals Counsel and other in house lawyers throughout the world for companies of all sizes.
