Project and secondment attorney needs 

Your organization needs efficient interim attorney talent to support workflow surges and complex projects. Korn Ferry can help. We react quickly to provide experienced attorneys that can handle overflow legal projects or fill interim vacancies arising from personnel changes, employee leave of absence and restructurings. With options for candidates at various hourly rates and flat weekly fee arrangements, Korn Ferry will tailor an interim legal recruitment solution that fits your budget and goals. 

How we can help

Korn Ferry understands that legal recruiting is time sensitive and intricate. Our legal recruiters conduct exhaustive research and work closely with law firms, corporate clients, attorney candidates and legal staff. Our legal recruiters’ goal is to help solve your legal recruitment challenges so you can achieve your long-term goals or meet your interim hiring needs.

We help law firms and corporate law departments create tailored compensation and rewards programs, development plans and engagement strategies that are differentiated in the market and enable firms to engage and retain talent.

Law school doesn’t teach leadership or soft skills, which can stifle attorneys’ growth. We work with you to identify high potential performers with the skills, traits and drivers to serve as leaders and develop training programs to prepare legal talent for future leadership roles.

We help you remove barriers and biases that slow the development and promotion of diverse legal candidates and reshape your talent systems to attract and retain talent using a comprehensive data-driven approach.
