BH Legal® Case Study

Direct Hire Attorney Search: Practice Group Placement

Established IP partners at a top-tier firm decided that it was time for a change and were seeking a different legal platform. They started thinking about a move because they were called by another agency regarding an opportunity, but due to our long-term relationship with them, they reached out to Beacon Hill Legal.


Their practice niche is in a space that is subject to many conflicts. The challenge was trying to find a firm who was not conflicted out and whose current team was lacking in their area of expertise. They also wanted to find a firm that would support the growth of their practice while being flexible regarding the fee challenges of today’s legal costs.


We spent an evening at dinner really understanding the reasons for a change and what has and hasn’t worked for them in the past. During dinner we spoke about several firms and made a plan to select three firms to confidentially contact on their behalf. In less than a week’s time two members of the group were having face-to-face conversations with the managing partners of the targeted firms.

The Results

In a very short period of time we were able to find them an international firm that was excited to have their practice area complement their current team’s practice.
