A Premier Attorney Recruiting Firm

Need to hire an attorney? Our team knows where to look for partners and associates with the qualifications you need. We are not just a “lawyer headhunter,” but act as a staffing consultant to help our clients define their hiring strategies and understand all hiring options. Creating clear expectations of the job requirements (such as billable hours or client development hours) will allow all parties to make informed, long-term decisions. We can strategically recruit lawyers with industry and government connections or specialized skills and backgrounds that help firms grow geographically or with expanded practice areas.

Z Legal is actively connected to the legal community. As thought leaders and frequent speakers for media, education, legal associations, and conferences, we maintain legal community connections and keep ahead of hiring and staffing trends.

Our experts will assist your firm in presenting offers that may include compensation packages affecting overall earnings. We can highlight bonuses, fee splits, profit sharing, and other benefit considerations to increase interest among desirable candidates.

Legal Staff Hiring: Permanent Placements or Temporary Staffing

We recruit and place all professional legal staff, including temporary and contract employees, such as paralegals, legal secretaries, law firm administrators, law librarians, business development/marketing, human resources, legal recruiting professionals, and more. Our temporary legal staff can cover the following:

  • Interim needs
  • Medical/Family leaves of absences
  • Vacations
  • Sudden vacancies
  • Unexpected workloads
  • Special projects

Temporary staffing can also be more economical for firms uncertain of long-term needs. Contact us if you wish to discuss whether to hire legal staff on a permanent or temporary basis.

Utilizing temporary employees is also an excellent way to evaluate an employee for suitability at your firm. Many of our contract legal staff accept offers for permanent employment with our clients. Z Legal can help with the temp-to-hire conversion, assisting with terms negotiations and paperwork.

Hire a Contract Attorney or Freelance Lawyer

Strategically hiring a contract attorney can give your firm the specialized knowledge needed for success. This hiring method can help your firm with unexpected surges in work, completing special projects, or expanding geographically or into new practice areas. Z Legal can present freelance lawyers with varied backgrounds and legal expertise.

Law Firm Administrators and Legal Management Hiring

Let Z Legal locate your company's highly qualified law firm administrators and C-Level legal executives. We can attract and inspire strong candidates by selling your firm's culture, history and success. Reaching out to our connections will identify likely movement and prospects with proven management track records. If your company has already been searching on its own, we can provide realistic expectations or adjustments to the job description.

Engaging strong business, technology, and financial managers can take your legal department to the next level. However, the culture and fit must align with regards to personalities, needs, goals, and communication styles. Z Legal senior placement specialists will help your law firm or in-house legal department define the intangible qualities you are looking for. We are legal hiring experts and will produce the results you need. Our company's success and longevity rely on our satisfied clients and confident referrals.
