About The Project:
As a result of extended funding and increased demand for representation, our client, a nationwide law firm supporting victims of 9/11, was looking to grow their staff. Having found prior success working with The Execu|Search Group to fill a legal assistant role, the firm reached out to us for help filling a significant amount of new roles within the firm. Amidst a global pandemic, the firm trusted The Execu|Search Group to pivot on a whim and virtually recruit and onboard talent--ultimately meeting their goals for expansion.
Heavier workload: As a result of increased funding and demand for services, the law firm was experiencing a significant increase in projects.
Lack of resources: With limited staff, the firm needed to expand on their headcount in order to increase efficiency and take on new responsibilities.
Hindered interview process: As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the firm needed to get creative with their interview process while adapting to a “new normal.”
The Execu|Search Group provided top notch customer service that kept the client engaged and motivated to trust us with their expansion. Having sat down with the law firm prior to the pandemic to become familiar with their needs and working environment, we understood the type of candidates they were seeking. To fill some of the necessary non-legal roles, we brought in experts from our professional support and technology staffing teams, and our flexible temp-to-hire solution offered the firm an opportunity to get to know our candidates before bringing them on full time. With virtual interviews scheduled in less than 24 hours, we made our client’s hiring process seamless despite the challenges brought forth by the global pandemic. In turn, the client continues to work with us, has since hired multiple candidates as full-time, and has referred The Execu|Search Group to their sister law firm across the country.
