Every day, we speak to candidates who are ready to consider new opportunities; others, while interested in exploring the market, prefer to proceed in a more measured manner. Regardless of which category you fit in, Palmer Kent Associates is your recruiting partner of first choice. We offer discreet and personalized recruiting services to partner-level candidates. Review our About Us page to learn more about Palmer Kent and its Core Values.
What Are You Worth?
We pride ourselves on our ability to assess your value in the marketplace, based upon our years of experience working with partner-level candidates. While there are many factors that enter into this determination, we are prepared to analyze your background and assist you in evaluating your worth in the marketplace.
Are You Practicing in the Best Platform for You?
Often, we find that candidates are not operating in the best platform for their particular practice. We are able to thoroughly analyze your practice with you and recommend specific platforms that would maximize your practice and career plans.
Employing our many years of experience in the legal industry, Palmer Kent Associates is ready to work with you to identify, together, firms that are a strong fit. We frequently identify excellent firms that you might not have contemplated previously. Palmer Kent enjoys outstanding relationships with some of the most respected law firms in the world, regularly communicating with senior management (Firm Chairs, Managing Partners, Executive Committee Members, Hiring Partners, et al.) at these firms. It is because of these strong relationships that we are able to discreetly profile you to our clients and move you through the process in an efficient and expeditious manner, while providing you with constant feedback from our clients.
Even if you are not yet ready to make a change, let us assess the market for you and your practice. We are always available to serve as your sounding board.
While the demand for lateral associates during the last couple of years has been less than overwhelming, the market has become significantly more active during the last two quarters. At Palmer Kent Associates, we have our fingers on the pulse of the market and know which geographic markets and practice areas law firms are building. While our energies are focused on partner recruiting, often the partners we work with and/or have placed have great confidence in us and ask us directly to work on confidential and exclusive searches. We maintain an active database of associate candidates, so be sure to add your resume to our database and tell us a bit about yourself. We are always interested to learn more about you and your career goals. At Palmer Kent Associates, we can assure you that you will receive the same high level of service our legal recruiters have always offered partners. Some of our recruiters have been law firm associates or have worked as law firm recruiting directors and bring to their work a high level of professionalism that will always reflect well on you.
