I’m pleased to
share with you an exciting opportunity for a Senior Labor & Employment
attorney with a fantastic national firm. I work with this firm regularly
(have placed multiple attorneys) and the feedback on all levels has always been
terrific. I’m very well-connected to help explore this opportunity.
The ideal candidate will have 7+ years of experience and will have significant counseling and some employment litigation experience. Preferably, the candidate should have gained the majority of this experience in an L&E group or an employment boutique firm. The attorney’s practice will focus on providing advice and counseling to clients concerning employment law issues, with additional work on employment litigation, including single plaintiff and class action matters.

competitive salaries, opportunities to work on interesting matters and a truly
collegial work environment.

I’m working with a
thriving boutique real estate firm that is seeking experienced attorneys who
have a comprehensive transactional real estate practice. There are opportunities to join this firm in
a couple of different capacities.
1) Counsel/Partner – Fighting to make Partner at a BigLaw firm can be a very frustrating and often unsuccessful endeavor. If you’re feeling like you’ve hit a ceiling and your firm no longer offers meaningful growth potential, this could be a great time to get in at the ground floor of a growing firm.
2) Part-Time –
maybe you’re over the long hours and would like to have a bit more work/life
balance. If so, this very same firm is
offering the chance to work on a reduced-hours schedule, including the ability
to work remotely. In this scenario, there
would be little to no supervision, so you must be extremely comfortable with
managing all types of real estate transactions.
Please contact me

We are currently working with a very busy boutique litigation firm here in Los Angeles that is seeking to add experienced Trial/Litigation attorneys.
candidate will have gained substantive experience (7+ years), preferably at a
BigLaw firm, but who maybe feels they have hit a wall or a plateau in their
practice. This position will offer significant hands-on responsibility, a
competitive compensation package and legit Partnership prospects. In
fact, if you have the requisite skill set and pedigree, there is a REAL
possibility of lateraling into this firm as a Partner.
This is a terrific chance to be part of a growing firm and you’ll be working alongside some of the best trial litigators on complex and precedent-setting matters.

I’m reaching out today with an exciting GROWTH opportunity with a newly-established office in Los Angeles.
This new office will consist primarily of transplants from other offices so as to maintain continuity in the firm’s culture, office environment and quality of services, but they are looking to add additional stellar Corporate Associates. The Firm is extremely well-regarded and has a very rich history of working with technology and other early stage/emerging company clients.
This is a true “ground-floor” opportunity with potential for immediate and sustained growth. There will be heavy competition for these roles, so working with the right recruiter is crucial. I have an established relationship with the firm, I have successfully placed attorneys there and am personally close with the now-local attorneys – as such, I am in an ideal position to assist you in exploring this role.
This is a very active search, so if you are interested please contact me immediately to discuss further.
