Many of our recruiters make 30 to 40 placements per year, while recruiters at competitor firms are likely to make four or five. Unlike other placement firms that can only tell you about openings at major AmLaw firms, we place candidates of all backgrounds in firms of all sizes. While other legal recruiters only represent a narrow band of candidates from top law firms and top law schools, our research, firm contacts, and market insight allow us to place hundreds of candidates each year who do not fit this mold. It is rare that we do not get candidates we represent interviews and offers. No one in the world is better at legal recruiting and placement than BCG Attorney Search.


BCG Attorney Search will confidentially review your application and will not forward your materials to the firm without first discussing the opportunity with you. If you have any questions about this opening, please contact us at (800) 298-6440.
