Our wide network of technology leaders with deep experience in the legal niche and a clear understanding of law firms’ unique technology leadership needs will ensure a timely and successful hire.

Unlike a traditional retained search, you’ll only pay us based on our accomplishment of mutually agreed upon milestones. After paying one third of 25% of the compensation package for the position to initiate the search, the rest of the payment schedule is up to you!

Our collaborative, individualized, and strategic approach results in our clients hiring the legal technology leaders their law firm needs.

We’ll work with you to create a compelling presentation to take to market and you’ll receive weekly summaries on the progress of your executive search.

Our process saves you the time it takes to identify top talent, and instead you choose from among the legal technology industry’s best CIO, CKO, or Director-level candidates. We’ll do the prospecting, conduct a thorough first round of interviews, and perform reference checks for you. You’ll then be presented with highly qualified technology leaders to meet and interview. We’ll remain in an advisory role until the completion of your search.
