BCG Attorney Search is the industry leader for placing candidates in permanent positions in law firms.

The depth and breadth of our research empowers us to place attorneys at rates that are unparalleled at any placement firm in the United States. Many of our recruiters make 30 to 40 placements per year, while recruiters at competitor firms are likely to make four or five. Unlike other placement firms that can only tell you about openings at major AmLaw firms, we place candidates of all backgrounds in firms of all sizes. While other legal recruiters only represent a narrow band of candidates from top law firms and top law schools, our research, firm contacts, and market insight allow us to place hundreds of candidates each year who do not fit this mold. It is rare that we do not get candidates we represent interviews and offers. No one in the world is better at legal recruiting and placement than BCG Attorney Search.
BCG Attorney Search will confidentially review your application and will not forward your materials to the firm without first discussing the opportunity with you. If you have any questions about this opening, please contact us at (800) 298-6440.
At BCG Attorney Search, we are exceptionally good at what we do. Each of our recruiters typically makes far more placements than recruiters at competing placement firms while working with far fewer, select candidates. In 2003 through 2007, for example, we averaged over one placement each business day nationally. From 2008 through 2010, during one of the worst legal placement markets in history, several of our recruiters increased their performance from prior years. BCG Attorney Search has a method of training recruiters and making placements that produces outstanding results for our clients.
With offices in Century City, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, Newport Beach, Washington, DC, San Francisco, Atlanta, and Palo Alto, we are well suited to represent attorneys in most major national markets. As a consequence, our recruiters have an excellent understanding of the law firms they are serving and consistently aim to be experts on the legal market in their respective region at all times. Our recruiters are on first-name bases with most of the hiring authorities in the law firm markets they serve. We are focused for a reason: We do one thing and do it well.
You should choose a leader in the legal profession to get your next job. You should choose a leader who has the same high standards for its work as you do for your own. You should choose someone who knows more than anyone about how to get attorneys jobs.
