Explore Some of the Industries We Serve

Legal & Compliance

A shift to client-driven relationships is forcing change dynamics in the legal industry that will continue to influence trends over the next few years. Law firms are investing in legal technologies to improve overall earnings, and using project management tools to significantly reduce non-billable hours. Law firms and internal legal organizations are also focusing on cybersecurity, where they have seen the average cost of a breech climb to more than $4 million. Competition for strong law firm partners to grow existing practices to new geographies or build the strength of existing offices is fierce, and law firms increasingly turn to search firms to help identify this crucial talent.

Manhattan Resources has the expertise to help you with legal human resources needs, whether you are a law firm looking for partnership leadership or a corporation in need of in-house counsel or consulting. Our recruiting team helps grow our legal clients by sourcing experienced partner leadership to both expand geographically and into new practice areas, and to source leadership for internal legal, risk and compliance departments. Our advisory services team can provide you with experienced consultants to assist with legal and compliance matters.

We review your opportunity in detail, and explore your company and culture. We prefer to include the direct hiring managers and the staff who will work directly with the role in our initial meetings, so that we can fully understand the needs of all stakeholders.

We prepare informative and engaging materials to attract the best talent to your opportunity. No more wondering how the recruiter is presenting your organization to prospective candidates — your job description and company information are pre-approved by you to ensure they are consistent with your brand positioning.

We create a candidate report of our findings for each person we think best fits your technical, cultural and career stage requirements. This document is a one-stop shop about the candidate, including any potential gaps we think relevant for your review. Now comes the hard part for you… if you have to choose just on

We help you put together a competitive package for your chosen candidate, to secure their place and complete your team.

Our performance guaranty means we follow up with you to ensure the arrangement is meeting expectations, and resolve any issues as they arise. Our goal is a satisfied client who not only comes to us for assistance again, but refers us to others.
