Yes, we can help you find the perfect new associate. And, yes, we can help you grow your practice group.
But unlike single-focus firms, we can also pour decades of experience into guiding you through industry changes, the hiring process, compensation package development, even negotiations.
The time you spend with us is priceless and valuable: we use it to illuminate your firm’s “big picture.” This clarity allows us to provide support throughout many hires’ life cycles, collaborate with law firm management partners and teams to identify, qualify and introduce lateral partners, uncover quality mid-level and senior associates to fill positions in rapidly growing or understaffed practice areas, assist with small group acquisitions and more.
Trust Shuart to help you target the talent you need, keep you abreast of the latest trends in law firm business models and anticipate your every move.
You know your corporate legal department faces constant challenges. You know you need superlative candidates to support, propel and maybe even lead your business. You, however, may not know the best way to seek, attract and on-board those professionals.
Luckily for you, we do. Our success rate of matching high-quality attorneys with in-house positions is mammoth—and that's important: an attorney who excels in a law firm may not excel in an in-house setting. No matter if you’re looking for first-time corporate counsel or filling out a larger, well-established legal department, the candidate pools we build are deep with professionals possessing outstanding skills, experience and talent.
Turns out, it’s not what you know. It’s who we know.
Paralegals and legal secretaries. Administrators and human resource managers. Marketing staff, accountants and so many other roles are critical to keeping your law firm competitive in today’s fast-moving, interconnected world.
Which means you likely need the support, well, yesterday. Enter Shuart. Our recruiting and consulting services are comprehensive and precise, deftly pairing the right person for whatever position is at hand. How do we do it?
Sometimes you don’t need a permanent legal, administrative or support professional. Sometimes you need an exceptionally proficient attorney, administrative person, paralegal or legal secretary on a temporary or locum basis.
Our rich database of available contract staff for legal projects is regularly maintained and assiduously updated. Whether you need contract assistance for one week or several months, we can identify and provide the staff you need. We do the testing and screening. When requested, we do the background and security checks. We do the on-site management and we offer an easy-to-process hourly charge rate.
Our aim is to help you develop a well-oiled, fully functioning team that gets the job done efficiently, expeditiously and professionally.
Our one focus is to provide you with the most qualified candidates—the ones that best fit your temporary, project-based, or direct-hire needs. It’s only natural that you’ll wonder what that costs.
For direct-hire, our fees are based on the employee’s annual compensation. And, of course, we include a guarantee period. What’s more, our team will work with you to ensure a smooth and pleasant transition for your new employee and organization.
When it comes to temporary/contract placement, we offer a competitive hourly rate that covers the cost of the Shuart employee, all payroll taxes and related insurance costs. At Shuart, there are no hidden costs. Our employee will submit a time sheet to you each week for your review, and you will also receive a weekly invoice for approved hours.
In short? Shuart delivers an expeditious, thorough, cost-effective experience that’s truly priceless.
