Lateral Associate Practice

Recruiters at Solutus have been successfully placing lateral associates for over 40 years combined and our law firm clients (of all sizes) are a Who’s Who in the legal industry. Our contacts and relationships in these firms are second-to-none and play a large role in our ability to place associates where others have failed.

The lateral associate market is changing rapidly and lateral decisions are becoming more important for candidates. As more and more firms change the way they use, promote and compensate their associates, it becomes increasingly important for candidates to fully understand the strategic trajectories law firms are plotting. The wrong lateral move can derail career progress. To this end, it is crucial that associates work with only the most knowledgeable and reputable search firm as they navigate through this new and untested territory.
