Looking for the Next Challenge or a Better Fit?

The Advocates will represent you to the top employers in your field. We want to get to know you in order to become a coach, mentor and most importantly your advocate in the legal marketplace. We build long-term relationships with both the legal professionals we work with and our clients.

 

The Advantages of Working With The Advocates

1. Fit – unique view of the marketplace and understanding of you and your needs.

In order to gain a 360° view of client law firms and corporate legal departments, we work with executive management, team or practice leaders, and administrative and Human Resources professionals.  We take our contacts through a proprietary set of questions to help us develop insights into their goals, culture and traits of top performers.

Our unique CBI – Chronological Behavior-based Interview helps us to understand you, your career goals and the type of opportunity that presents the best fit.

We use the information above to help you decide where the best potential opportunities are for the next step in your career.

 

2. Access to opportunities available only through us:

Each year 25%–35% of the placements we make are created through our knowledge of our clients and their strategic goals — not to “open” positions. This means you have access to positions that are not advertised as they are only available through us.

We often know about opportunities before they are advertised.

 

3. Market Intelligence

We have daily conversations with law firm and corporate leaders that, along with our formal research, have created a tremendous database of market intelligence from what firms are doing and why, to local pay trends, etc.

 

4. Confidentiality

By working directly with law firm and corporate leaders, we can make discreet inquiries, without using your name. This way we are able to inquire about potential opportunities without compromising the confidentiality of your search.

 

5. Focus on your practice

…not on your next position. By working with you and searching for you we can work together to submit you only to appropriate positions. We take a lot of busy work off your plate, allowing you to focus on your practice.

 

6. Career Coaching

Our CBI allows us to offer on-going career coaching.

 

7. Interview Feedback and Coaching

You are a great legal professional — we can help you become a better interviewer.

 

8. We negotiate salary for you through a unique process that avoids positional bargaining in favor of an approach based on mutually desired outcomes.
