Trusted Counsel for Your Firm’s Hiring Needs

Long Ridge Legal specializes in matching attorneys with their ideal career opportunity. Whether we are assisting a partner, associate or in-house attorney, we pride ourselves on taking a targeted, discrete and thoughtful approach.

We listen to our candidates in order to learn not only the type of work they want to do, but the environment in which they want to do it. We evaluate a candidate’s practice skills and seek to understand their ideal cultural fit. Only then will we present candidates with opportunities that advance their personal and professional goals.

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.
