Attorneys for Law Firms
WarrenMetro wants to help you find the best candidates for your law firm. In order to do so, we first need to understand your firm’s unique culture, organizational structure, clientele and plans for growth. We understand the importance of your bottom line and the inherent significance of finding the right candidates to positively impact the bottom line. We welcome the opportunity to meet with you to learn more about your hiring needs. We will work diligently on your behalf to help you be successful in identifying and retaining the best available legal talent.
Hiring the right staff is the key to being competitive in today’s legal environment. We strongly believe that an organization’s ability to serve its customers and client-base is directly dependent upon the strengths of its employees.
Recent trends in the industry show that today’s firms are growing by the acquisition of established partners and practice groups. In 2008, Dean Warren led a group of attorneys in Charlotte to join a firm looking to do exactly that. He opened a national firm’s Charlotte office, grew it successfully and thus understands how to structure these transactions to facilitate growth into new practice areas and locations.
Attorneys for Companies
An in-house lawyer is a major contributor to a company’s bottom line. However, not all law firm lawyers make successful in-house attorneys. A successful in-house attorney must have the requisite legal skills, personality traits and confidence to make quick, on-point decisions for the corporate client. The ability to translate a legal problem into a business solution is essential, as is the aptitude to operate with limited resources and support. Successful in-house lawyers must also have a broad knowledge of the wide legal landscape while also possessing superior business acumen and risk management skills. These lawyers must appreciate the economic impact of legal and regulatory issues by effectively assessing risks and costs weighed against potential gains.
With over 30 years of legal experience, we understand the legal needs of companies and in-house legal departments. Moreover, we possess the ability to target and screen a much broader base of suitable candidates than most companies are able to identify through their own efforts, including individuals who may be perfect candidates but not actively seeking a new position.
In short, we will identify lawyers who possess superior legal skills and will mesh with your corporate culture. These lawyers will also be problem-solvers who can address a broad range of legal issues specific to your business needs.
Often, large-scale projects cannot be staffed with permanent employees, whether due to cost considerations, timing issues or unduly heavy workloads. In addition, some assignments may require a specific skill set outside of the typical scope or necessity of the firm’s full-time attorney staff. Accordingly, WarrenMetro also specializes in contract attorney searches for firms that need temporary or seasonal legal professionals. We will find and provide highly-skilled talent across all practice areas, while also remaining sensitive to the work culture and preferences of our clients.
We are also happy to assist organizations in finding lawyers to cover medical or family leaves as well as other short-term needs.
