The legal market is undergoing a period of profound change. Profitability pressures, the emergence of alternative service providers, and shifting elite talent demands are changing the rules of the legal recruitment and retention game. The recent trend towards firm consolidation through mergers and lateral acquisitions is resulting in larger firms. At the same time, as demand for legal services evolves, firms are segmenting into specialized practices with niche specialties like healthcare law, intellectual property rights, insurance defense and employment. Clients who once agreed to standard rates are increasingly asking to adapt rate structures to their internal budgets. Companies are turning to contract legal talent for specialized services and rethinking firm retainer models.
In light of this market evolution, Lucas Group understands that legal recruiting is a more time-sensitive and intricate undertaking than ever before. As North America’s premier executive recruitment firm, Lucas Group attorney recruiters perform and produce with efficiency, insight, and discretion. We conduct exhaustive research and work closely with our law firm and corporate clients as well as with our attorney candidates.
