How long will my search take?
Our years of experience have shown us that there is no
pre-determined formula for the length of a legal search. What we have learned
is that within a few weeks of working with a candidate we can be fairly
accurate in determining how long the process will take. Our knowledge of the
marketplace and our long-standing relationships enable us to monitor firms'
immediate needs and their projected needs for the months ahead. We have had

candidates with firms a year or longer after our initial introduction.

works at the firm I want to consider?
It's no longer surprising how many firms are connected by spouses,

until the last possible moment. In each case, it has been the candidate who
decided when to involve the person in question. It is our vigilance,
sensitivity to confidentiality, commitment to providing the highest quality of
service and our track-record that provides our assurance.
