The 2017 Most Influential Recruiters Ranking List Q & A Section

What kind of legal recruitment firms are found on the list?
The 2017 Most Influential Legal Recruiters List features 250 legal employment agencies. These are the best legal recruitment agencies in terms of influence in America. Unlike the previously offered directory of legal recruiters or the database of legal recruiters provided by other sources, we provide a ranking of the most influential legal staffing agencies. Although we include legal staffing agencies that place attorneys, paralegals, and legal assistants, we only rank the legal placing agencies that focus solely on the law in terms of the legal recruitment firm's website.
Which legal recruitment agencies are the most influential?

Influence extends beyond a legal staffing agency to the legal recruiters ability to reach candidates. The most influential legal recruiters are the legal placement services that candidates are most likely to encounter. Additionally, when an employer wants to hire an attorney, generally, an employer seeks out the best legal recruiters with the influence to reach the candidates. The influence ranking is determined by a number of factors, which are discussed in detail in a separate article.

How did LawCrossing create the legal employment agency ranking list?

After analyzing 250 legal recruitment agencies across the United States, LawCrossing put together the 2017 Most Influential Legal Recruiter List in America based on a series of criteria. We ranked each legal placement firm's level of influence by utilizing more than 20 weighted factors. After months of research, we finalized the factors. The factors vary from the number of years the legal recruitment agency has operated to the use of social media.

2017 Legal Recruiters List Rankings


MJM Legal Search is a legal placement firm that places attorneys at all levels of experience in both law firms and corporate legal departments. Located just outside our nation's capital, we serve all major markets, with a particular concentration on the Washington, DC and New York greater metropolitan areas. We handle all substantive practice areas but with a special emphasis on ERISA/employee benefits, labor and employment, and litigation. Our most recent placements include the following practice areas: employee benefits, labor and employment, commercial litigation, products liability litigation, corporate and insurance regulatory. We strongly believe that every successful placement results not only from matching a candidate's professional experience with the employer's job requirements but from also ensuring there is a good fit between the candidate and the employer's work culture. Every placement, therefore, begins with an in-depth information gathering process. We bring to this process the insights we have gained from many years of legal practice in both law firms and in-house. We understand the demands of the practice of law and we talk the same language as the employers and candidates we work with. We are also familiar with the recruiting process from the inside as we participated in many hiring decisions during our years of practice and understand the considerations that go into those decisions. We know that our relationships with employers and candidates are based on trust. We therefore handle all information shared with us with the utmost discretion and confidentiality and we never submit a resume without first obtaining the candidate's express consent. about marilyn cochran Marilyn Cochran established MJM Legal Search after practicing law for over twenty years. She obtained her J.D. cum laude from Whittier College, where she was a member of Law Review, and her LL.M. in Taxation from New York University. She was an associate in New York at Rosenman & Colin (now Katten Muchin Rosenman) and at Schulte Roth & Zabel where, over the course of seven years, she practiced as an employee benefits attorney and litigator. Marilyn subsequently moved in-house to MetLife, where she managed employee benefits litigation for over eight years before relocating to Washington, DC. She has published numerous legal articles and, during the years she practiced law, she was frequently involved in the attorney hiring process. In addition to her years of practice in New York, Marilyn also practiced law in Los Angeles and Washington, DC and is equally at home recruiting in each of these markets.
