The U.T. Law Alumni Association and its Dean are honoring six Texas lawyers with various alumni awards.
Momentum Search Partners focuses on recruiting and legal placements in Texas and a sizeable percentage of our candidates and client contacts are U.T. Law alums.
Texas Legal Recruiters at Momentum have been retained on an exclusive basis by a publicly-held company to help it hire a Corporate General Counsel - U.S. Operations.
This attorney will be based in Dallas and will be the sole legal support in the U.S.
We have been retained on an exclusive basis by a publicly-held company to recruit a new general counsel for one of its major subsidiaries, which is headquartered in the Galleria area of Dallas.
This is a great opportunity for a lawyer who is currently in a mid-level, in-house role to gain experience working with management and to take a leadership position within the company.
The position will be the sole in-house attorney supporting the U.S. subsidiary and will report to the General Counsel of the parent company, which is out-of-state. Suitable candidates will be true generalists, with experience:
We were recently asked to make a presentation to managing partners of small law firms in Texas on best hiring practices. In preparation for this seminar talk, we were reminded of the importance of RETAINING existing talent.
Hiring is just the start of building a team, once someone is found and trained, the law firm or legal department needs to know how to KEEP them! The costs of turnover are mostly hidden, but affect the bottom line of small law firms significantly.
Interview preparation is critical to any attorney or paralegal who is seeking a new position.
In addition to reviewing the employer’s website and any recent press releases about the company, lawyers should be prepared for a wide range of subjective questions that are geared towards learning about your personal style, your experience, and whether you would be a cultural fit on the legal team for which you’re interviewing.
Last week, we highlighted the positions we are working on in Austin. This week, we highlight our new Dallas openings.
The following law firms are both local or regional firms based in Dallas. As such, their associates have a better shot at making partner than at the mega-firms. Each of these firms has a storied past and significant presence in the Dallas market, as well as a long roster of Dallas-based clients.
As we approach our fifth year together, we decided our website was due for a facelift. Please see www.momentumlegal.com for our new and improved version.
Candidates can find helpful resources for candidates in the "For Candidates" tab, including interviewing tips, sample resumes, and a salary calculator. And potential clients can find testimonials from past clients who have found our services valuable and efficient.
