Our daily interaction with leading law firms around the world means that we bring to our clients a deep knowledge of local and global market conditions and dynamics. We partner with our clients to identify the best legal talent for their needs and then deliver a crisp articulate presentation of the opportunity to the shortlisted lawyers. We are often told by busy partners that they return our calls simply because our approach stands out, in a severely overcrowded industry, for our concise, eloquent, thoughtful and direct explanation of the search we are working on, and why the role merits their consideration.
Partner candidates who seek us out for career advice praise us for our unswerving commitment to offering them the best possible long term career advice, for our breadth of industry knowledge and our palpable desire to build a long term relationship and reputation rather than focus on the next “placement”.
Our corporate clients can draw on the experience and knowledge we have accumulated from handling the full array of in-house searches for General Counsels, other senior level in house lawyers and in-demand specialists in related areas such as Compliance Officers, Risk Mitigation VPs, and Heads of Intellectual Property in many different markets. For in-house candidates we can help ensure that you find not just the best fit, but can provide you with the latest market data on compensation (including equity) and corporate hiring trends, and we will be there to prep you through each steps of the companies’ often intensive hiring processes.
Diversity: Our Commitment Shows in Who We Are and What We Do
Diversity is integral to Mlegal’s culture, how we conduct business and the causes we are passionate about. We are proud that the majority of our own partners and senior team count themselves as part of underrepresented demographics within the legal industry.
We have conducted many searches focused on increasing the inclusivity and diversity of the legal workplace. We are attuned to the complex cross-sensitivities inherent in any diversity search for both the clients and candidates we serve. It is our goal that everyone has equal access to the best opportunities as well as works in an atmosphere in which they feel included and respected.
We support many local, national and international groups fighting for inclusivity, diversity and most fundamentally, equality for all under the law. We also recognize that we must look beyond our “first-world” problems. We do not measure our commitment to diversity by the national borders of where our clients are located. We look beyond to devote significant time to charitable causes in other parts of the world simply because it is the right thing to do.
Mlegal is dedicated to giving back to the community. We believe that it is our responsibility to invest our time, knowledge and financial support in worthy causes within the legal profession and outside of it. Each year a percentage of Mlegal profits are paid out to organizations with a particular focus on education, child health and welfare, and cultural heritage.
