Comment: Recruiting and Lateral Moves


ILW has experience in doing recruiting for law firms (this is NOT Immigration Daily Help Wanted ads, but full service recruiting similar to head hunting firms, but at a lower price.) We specialize in recruiting at the Associate Attorney level. We offer different levels of service depending on the client's needs: We can receive and filter resumes; Conduct telephonic interviews; Setup face to face interviews with the law firm, etc. We also help with Partner level lateral moves; but this is usually as part of marketing arrangement for a firm. For more information write to us at webmaster@ilw.com.
