We at Sacks Legal Search care about your career and realize that it is crucial to make the right move at the right time. We utilize our extensive contacts with the decisionmakers at law firms and companies nationwide to provide you with the inside "scoop" on the best available positions, which often is not publicly available information. After meeting with you, ideally in person or over the telephone, we will prepare you extensively for interviews and guide you to a successful placement.
Sacks Legal Search also offers our candidates confidentiality. Once you submit your resume to us, we will only send it to specific employers with your prior express consent.
The typical profile of a strong lateral candidate for law firms is an attorney who graduated in at least the top 20% of an accredited law school (ideally a top 15 law school) with academic honors and who has 1+ years of major law firm or boutique law firm experience. Additionally, law firms often seek more experienced senior associates or partner-level attorneys with a book of portable business. Corporations generally seek similarly strong credentials, although unlike law firms they typically do not require portable business.
