The Challenges When You Recruit In-house Lawyers

CEOs, CFOs, General Counsel and their HR  colleagues face 3 challenges when recruiting in-house lawyers.

Candidate Attraction


You need to see the best in-house lawyers quickly, but perhaps aren’t aware who they are, or how best to attract them. Delays in attraction can over-stretch legal resources,  constrain key projects and could ultimately increase legal risk a well as external legal costs.

Applicant Quality


Legal hiring managers may be disappointed with the quality of applicants generated by adverts, agencies and other sources. You may find you waste time reviewing and declining poorly matched CVs, and don’t have enough choice upon which to make a reliable hiring decision. 

Appointee Retention


Attrition can be a valid concern. Not every lawyer makes a successful transition into a new in-house legal role, and some may struggle to meet the demands of key stakeholders. Making a bad hire is costly, time consuming, lowers morale and can be very disruptive.

Our 4-step L-TAR® methodology overcomes every one of these challenges when you seek to recruit in-house legal counsel.

Miguel knows the market very well, offers sound advice, and gets to know the candidates properly so he doesn't waste anybody's time trying to play Cupid for a relationship that's never going to happen or go well if it does.

Miguel Florit helped me find my first in-house role, and later when I was looking to build my team he was able to put me in touch with some well-matched candidates. Every experience has been positive.

 by David Palmer

Miguel, Andy and team have only ever been an asset for me, both personally, as a lawyer seeking employment and in my role as a Head of Legal recruiting fellow solicitors. Diligent without being invasive, relaxed and casual while being persistent and flexible, realistic and pragmatic without compromising my needs. They've helped shape my career.
