Case Study :- Corporate Securities Partner for a top tier law firm.

The Situation

After limited success with a myriad of contingency-based legal search firms, the management committee of a top tier law firm decided to pursue retained search for the first time in its 55 year history. After interviewing several retained search firms, this law firm turned to Ray & Berndtson to assist in its efforts to attract a premier corporate securities partner to build a practice for its office.

The Search

Within 60 days of commencing the assignment, Ray & Berndtson developed five candidates from several well known law firms. The firm ultimately selected a high profile candidate with substantial portable business from a top five law firm.

The Successful Results

Ray & Berndtson is recognized as a strong player in Business & Professional Services and can provide the full gamut of legal services needed for its clients. Within one year of placing the successful candidate, the firm again retained Ray & Berndtson to add an additional corporate partner to meet the needs of its expanding client base.
