Legal Job Openings

I constantly get new legal job openings. These are just samples. I have placed several partners recently and obtained incredible deals for them!


Senior Associates ready to be Partners.  Exclusive to me, this firm is seeking senior associates who have $250,000 in portables who feel that they can do better at a 150 attorney platform with lower billing rates and an immediate promotion to partnership.  I made a placement like this last year, and the attorney went from $0 as an associate to $500,000 in business as a partner in one year.

Exclusive Recruiter for Katten in Dallas.  I have helped grow Katten Dallas into 26 attorneys in just 6 months here.  We are targeting partners in their 40s who have solid books of business and dynamic personalities but not overbearing egos.  The goal is to find people who want to practice together for the next 15 years and make this the final move of their career.  Unlike other firms that are buying books of business, Katten is building a team that is together for a generation.  Compensation is fantastic as are the collegial people.  If you want cross-selling that benefits you, let’s speak about Katten.

    Randy helped me meet with firms that I otherwise would never have had the chance to interview. In the end, I had several offers from prestigious firms in the Dallas area. Moreover, he was able to place me with a firm that I had previously applied to on my own, to no avail. I am still with this firm and very happy.

    I doubt anyone is as well connected as Randy is in the Dallas legal market. Thank you for your marvelous work.
