As Dan Clark reported for Corporate Counsel, legal recruiters are engaged to fill a broad range of in-house roles. I’m going to expand on that here, and offer my thoughts on the best practices your law department should consider this hiring season.

March through June is the most active window for recruiting at the professional level generally across disciplines. Bonuses for 2018 have been paid, budget for 2019 and headcount numbers are mostly in place, and candidates with children can reasonably target end of the school year for moves that involve relocation.
