For Attorneys

Long Ridge Legal is comprised of devoted headhunters who are knowledgeable about the legal market and connected to the key decision-makers within law firms. We employ a thoughtful and targeted approach to assisting candidates, providing them with as much objective data, insight, and advice as possible so they can make the best decision for their career.

We place your sincere interests as individuals above all else. We do not believe in mass-distribution of your resume. Rather, we get to know you and find out where you want your career to go. Only then will we make strategic and sensible pitches of which roles to pursue.

For Law Firms

A law firm’s culture is its greatest asset, thereby making identifying and acquiring elite legal talent a complex and nuanced undertaking. Whether a law firm is seeking to hire an associate, counsel or Chambers-ranked partner capable of leading a practice, hiring the wrong attorney can set a group, office or entire firm back years. Simply put, there is little room for error in the lateral legal market.

Recognizing the importance of each individual hiring decision, Long Ridge Legal works closely with the firm’s practice heads and talent acquisition professionals to develop growth strategies. We are committed to a targeted and discrete approach to ensure that our client’s confidentiality is always protected.

We take pride in identifying and recruiting only those attorneys that are qualified for a particular search, screening out those that lack the sufficient experience, expertise, or metrics. Finally, we strive to only introduce candidates who will fit within the firm’s cultural fabric and add to the firm’s overall strategy for long-term growth.

Long Ridge was an enormous help throughout my recruitment process. They were invaluable when I was preparing for interviews, leveraging their experience and knowledge of the industry to assist me. They were there whenever I had questions and were very engaged. I truly appreciate their help, and they are a big reason why I was able to succeed in my recruitment.

I'm grateful for the partnership I've had with Long Ridge Partners. Their team's industry knowledge, personalized guidance, and strategic support were instrumental in securing a role at an elite hedge fund. Navigating the competitive world of hedge funds and going through the interview and hiring process with a team that could provide insights and answers was critical to successfully receiving and accepting an offer. I couldn't be happier with how the process went and the fund I joined.

I have worked with Long Ridge Partners as a client since 2008. Long Ridge always has a strong pool of candidates for whatever position we are looking to fill. When we have had special projects which require detailed research of a new industry or discipline Long Ridge has delivered. I have recommended Long Ridge to many industry contacts over the years and I do not know anybody that has been disappointed with their service. Always professional and willing to go the extra mile to get the job done. Best in class!

Long Ridge has been a pleasure to work with throughout my career. They have introduced numerous Portfolio Managers and Quant Researchers that I have ended up hiring. What sets Long Ridge apart is their willingness to go the extra mile to make sure both all parties have aligned expectations - meaning no surprises and many accepted offers.

My experience working with Long Ridge throughout my interview process was fantastic and top-tier. They were with me through every step of my process from my initial conversation with BD to my interviews with the PM and Senior Analysts. I would recommend working with Long Ridge to anyone looking to make the move to the buyside!

Working with the Long Ridge team on our hiring needs has made our recruiting process more efficient, successful and enjoyable. Prior to engaging solely with Long Ridge, we used multiple search firms which created more work for my team to manage internally, especially with how competitive the private equity recruitment space is. The Long Ridge team has helped us create a personalized and organized process that has successfully landed us top tier hires. It is clear that they take the time to get to know their clients and candidates, and have the industry knowledge needed to be the best partner for our team.

The team at Long Ridge Partners have outstanding recruiting and placement skills. Their thorough understanding of the hedge fund industry and exceptional communication ensured a seamless interview, negotiation, and onboarding process from start to finish. I landed a role perfectly aligned with my experience and goals in no small part because of their team's intuition and expertise in placing candidates like myself.

Over the last 3-4 months Long Ridge put great job opportunities in front of me – both of which translated to job offers. While I ultimately went another direction, I am truly thankful for your teams’ efforts. And having worked with a number of recruiters, I can say with high confidence that Long Ridge hires some of the best and brightest in the industry. I hope we can find ways to work together in the future and I will (continue) to refer qualified candidates to your team. Thanks again to the exceptional Long Ridge team!

I have been working with Long Ridge Partners over the past couple of years. The most important factor in choosing a search partner is not only getting the highest caliber of candidates but also having a firm that you can trust, work well with and who understands your needs. This combination makes Long Ridge stand out, and creates an unbelievable partnership.
