As a boutique legal search firm with offices around the globe, we represent a wide variety of clients, ranging from AmLaw 100 firms and litigation boutiques to Fortune 500 companies and hedge funds, to make hundreds of placements annually. Our recruiting team of former practicing attorneys, which includes a former Managing Partner of the D.C. office of Preston Gates, specializes in contingent and retained searches for partner, associate, General Counsel, and corporate counsel candidates. Our clients demand and deserve the best legal talent. We partner with them to outperform their competition in attracting and hiring the right candidates. As a regular thought leader in the legal hiring industry, from NALP conferences and bar association seminars to local trade organization sponsors and diversity hiring panels, we drive the conversation, not just follow it, to make sure our clients are leaders when it comes to legal recruiting.
DIVERSITY IS A TOP PRIORITY
We invite ALL of our candidates to voluntarily self identify by race, ethnicity, and gender. Our network consists of tens of thousands of highly credentialed attorneys from top 25 law schools with Am Law 100 experience, many of whom have identified themselves as diversity candidates. As we understand the importance diversity plays in fostering a stronger legal community, we promote diversity in the legal community by encouraging clients to prioritize diversity at their workplace. We are active sponsors of diversity organizations including Ms. JD, National Association of Women Lawyers, and MCCA just to name a few. We believe in practicing what we preach and setting an example for our clients to follow. We are proud of the dynamic and diverse team that makes up Lateral Link.
This law firm is one of the world's largest law firms, with more than 2,100 lawyers in offices worldwide. There are five major departments at the firm: finance, environment, land resources, tax, corporate, and litigation. Lateral Link Members praise the "good work" and "good people," explaining, "You can breathe here." However, associates warn that "laid back does [not] mean lazy" and "the hours are long." In exchange for those long hours, junior associates are given extensive "responsibility once they show some ability." While many Lateral Link Members enjoy the firm's "friendly," "social" atmosphere, others feel like it has a "fratty," "cliquey" culture.
