Colleagues in Hallway


We want to save you time, inputs, and unnecessary costs and assist you in recruiting the most suitable candidates as quickly as possible for your jobs


We conduct both retained and contingency legal searches for associates, partners and practice groups and patent professionals. A current fee schedule will be furnished upon request. 

The following services are provided for all clients: 

Client Assessment

Our consultants meet with the organization's hiring decision-makers to assess current and, if appropriate, long-term personnel needs. We seek to understand not just the client's practice areas and business strategy, but also the client's style and culture. Together with that decision-maker we determine the best-suited profile for your budget and specific needs.

Data Base Review

We initially review our in-house data base — and then tap into our network of contacts — to develop a list of potential candidates. Our data base covers a wide range of both nationally and internationally preeminent lawyers and IP professionals at every level of accomplishment and in most practice areas.

Candidate Screening

All potential candidates are pre-qualified prior to client referral. The evaluation includes a review of abilities, academic record, depth of practice experience, motivation, short and long term career objectives, and personal attributes necessary to ensure the best fit with the client's organizational culture and particular personnel needs. Only attorneys whose profiles closely match the search specifications established by the client are referred for an interview.


With our extensive network of attorney and client contacts, SmartJOB is well-positioned to obtain a broad overview of emerging trends in the legal marketplace. This perspective is a critically important aspect of the service we provide to clients, and enables us to perform a consulting role as part of every search.
