The staff at Firm Advice knows that each addition to an organization is important in both substantive terms - having specific objectives accomplished in a timely, effective, and efficient manner - and in terms of maintaining the work environment of the organization - enabling the attorneys to operate at optimal levels while enjoying a high degree of satisfaction in their work.
We also know that a false start with the wrong hire not only will slow down the matters at hand, but can result in an organization's losing momentum. Furthermore, excessive attrition can compromise time, economics, and morale. Adding the right attorney reduces the risk of employment lawsuits that frequently accompany separations from employment.
We work closely with our clients to ensure that we understand their needs. We know that their "needs" are not limited to the legal work that must be handled. Needs include the ability to work with colleagues and clients within the organization's own unique environment. The staff at Firm Advice considers all factors when evaluating potential candidates for the position.
Our extensive experience in the legal market and our superior professional reputation gives us the opportunity to speak with high-quality attorneys, many of whom are not actively pursuing other career options. Our professional approach to placing attorneys promotes our credibility. Attorneys can trust that when we announce an available position, we will be forthright with them regarding all aspects of the opening and work with only those attorneys who truly are right for the positions. We demonstrate our respect for the potential candidates, and our clients, by not wasting their time.
After we have narrowed down the list of potential candidates, we will send our clients the resumes of just a few attorneys who we think best fit their requirements. Depending on our clients' needs and interests, we can identify the attorney they ultimately hire very quickly or over an extended period of time. In the past we have identified the attorney hired within less than a week of receiving information regarding the opening. On the other hand, when a client's need was for an attorney in a specialized practice area combined with numerous other criteria, we worked with the client for over one year to find the perfect match for them. Although this type of dedication is usually found only in retained searches, Firm Advice's direct placement is handled solely on a contingency basis; if we do not identify the right attorney for our clients, we do not receive any fee for our efforts. Our confidence in our ability to find the right attorney for our clients enables us to work on a contingency basis.
