Law Firm Recruitment
Law firm recruitment is a nuanced, specialized field. To ensure that your firm is hiring the best talent, it’s critical to partner with a search firm that understands the economics of law firm hiring; the nuances between legal practices and industry spaces; and the current legal marketplace.
At CCY, we have experience representing law firms on a national level. We represent AM100 law firms in major markets, as well as regional firms in smaller markets, with a track record of success on both ends of the spectrum. We also recruit for all levels, from junior associates to equity partners, and everything in between.
We have the industry knowledge necessary to help you strategically build out your legal team and, ultimately, drive business.
In-House Counsel Recruitment
Hiring outside counsel is expensive. Deciding to insource your legal team requires a clear strategy, but can help your organization dramatically reduce legal expenditure. In order to build out your legal department successfully, it’s vital to partner with a search firm that understands your organization’s specific legal concerns and challenges, as well as the evolving legal landscape.
At CCY, we have years of experience representing organizations across various industry spaces including financial services, banking, energy, private equity, tax, health care, and real estate, among others. We recruit legal counsel at all levels, from Associate Counsel to General Counsel, and everything in between.
We have the experience required to help you optimize your internal legal function and significantly reduce legal spending.
Successful legal departments – or law firms – require an effective support staff. In addition to our attorney recruiting practice, we also represent organizations seeking talented legal staff, such as paralegals, patent agents, business development managers, and compliance professionals, among other titles.
Cost of Non-Compliance
Compliance is one of the most important functions within financial services organizations, yet it is severely under-valued by leadership within some of the world’s largest corporations. Since the financial crisis of 2008, banks globally have paid fines exceeding $320B for a variety of regulatory failings. If your organization doesn’t have a well-supported compliance function, you’re left open to legal risks and huge financial penalties.
Value of Compliance
Investing in compliance professionals may seem like a staffing cost initially, but will actually result in cost savings long-term. Experienced compliance officers will be able to navigate your organization successfully through the ever-evolving regulatory landscape, mitigating risk and reducing expenditure on legal counsel. In addition to these benefits, shareholders of organizations with built-out compliance departments can rest assured that their investment is safe. Not all regulatory fines are earth shattering, but the effect an infraction can have on shareholders has the ability to bring any organization to a screeching halt. Word travels quickly, and regulators aren’t letting up anytime soon. What are you doing to protect your organization?
Compliance is a highly specialized field, requiring recruiters to possess deep knowledge of the regulatory requirements that specifically impact your organization in order to identify qualified talent.
At CCY, we speak the language of compliance professionals. We understand the ‘alphabet soup’ of regulations that affect financial services organizations, from AML / BSA implications for banks to ’33 / ’34 Act compliance for broker-dealers – and everything in between.
We have experience recruiting compliance professionals at all levels, from Chief Compliance Officers at multi-national financial institutions to Compliance Managers at regional banks. We understand that organizations have differing compliance priorities based on business needs and size, and we tailor our recruitment strategy for each client accordingly.
