Partner Recruitment

We skillfully help you manage senior-level change in a dynamic legal marketplace

Lucas Group consistently works with leading firms across the nation to place talented, demonstrated senior partners, helping to broaden offerings and enhance capabilities, plan and create entire practice groups, and open new locations in the U.S. and abroad. Not long ago, senior partners remained at their firms with unfailing consistency. There was little movement among firms at that level and few actively recruited new senior partners. The legal world has changed. Today, partner movement is an established trend in a highly competitive market, and no one is better at partner recruitment than Lucas Group’s skilled team of legal search consultants.

If you seek to hire a top-performing partner, open an office, or make the move to merge/acquire an established practice group, Lucas Group legal recruiters can deliver. We have helped open successful offices for Am Law 100 firms in Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, and D.C., and we have efficiently moved senior partners and entire practice groups with as many as 20 attorneys and support staff.

Partner and practice group search requires intense research, deep industry knowledge and unconditional prudence. It also requires understanding and managing the highly emotional nature of a partner search and placement. Lives, careers and reputations hang in the balance, and we act accordingly, affording our clients—and their prospective partners—complete professionalism and absolute discretion.
