Momentum has been retained on an exclusive basis to help two different companies find transactional attorneys for their legal departments.
While most have been enjoying summer vacations, the Texas legal recruiters at Momentum have been as busy as ever!
We have two new exclusive, in-house openings in Dallas.
The tide has turned and, after several years of strong demand for corporate and other transactional lawyers, the demand in law firms now is for litigation associates.
We are seeing this across the board, in all of our legal placement markets, and for staffing as well as attorney positions.
All Austin employers who have 15 or more employees who work in Austin are covered by Austin’s new ban-the-box ordinance. If you are covered, then you can’t ask about an applicant’s criminal history in an application.
For more details about this law, see this summary of the ordinance by Austin employment lawyers Hutcheson Bowers.
Momentum is ending the year with a bang!

This is an outstanding opportunity for a lawyer with hedge fund, private equity, investment management, and/or wealth management experience to be an integral member of the executive team and manage all aspects of legal work for this growing company.
