Atlanta, GA – January, 16 2018 – Lucas Group, the leader in North American executive search, announced the continued expansion of its Legal Contract Recruitment practice with the opening of a new Mid-Atlantic Contract Legal Division based in Baltimore, MD. The division will serve the growing needs of U.S. corporations and law firms for temporary legal talent in the Washington, DC and surrounding Mid-Atlantic region.
Lucas Group Contract Legal Solutions provides law firms and corporate in-house legal departments with skilled attorneys, paralegals, legal support, and compliance professionals on a temporary contract, temporary-to-hire, and long-term basis. The practice serves mid-tier to Fortune 500 companies ranging from boutique to global 100 law firms.
“Increasingly, law firms and companies are opting to staff their teams and departments with temporary legal support until they are certain there is a need for a permanent hire. They also are able to work with the individual on a trial basis to review work product and measure fit. It is a more efficient, immediate and cost-effective talent solution,” says Steven Lynch, General Manager of Legal at Lucas Group. “Our new, specialized recruiters in our Baltimore branch have direct access to the nation’s largest legal talent network, bringing top performers directly to Mid-Atlantic companies.”
Karissa Hayko will be leading the new Mid-Atlantic Contract Legal Division. Hayko has 15 years of experience in the legal industry, including a decade of experience providing outside support to corporate legal departments and law firms.
Prior to joining Lucas Group, Hayko was Senior Manager, Business Development for Deloitte Services LP in Washington, DC, where she was responsible for identifying and developing relationships with both law firms and corporate legal departments for Deloitte’s Advisory practice related to its technology, e-discovery, cybersecurity, and information governance services.
“Karissa has serviced the legal industry for 15 years with more than 10 of those years providing support to corporate legal departments and law firms,” says Lynch. “With her deep understanding of the Mid-Atlantic market, she is uniquely suited to support organizations with their legal talent needs.”
In addition to full-service legal industry recruitment, Lucas Group specializes in recruitment services for six other functionalities, including Accounting & Finance, Human Resources, Information Technology, Manufacturing, Military Transition, and Sales & Marketing.
